Nick Cannon has announced that he’s leaving “America’s Got Talent.”

He said, “After days of deliberating over some extremely disappointing news that I was being threatened with termination by Executives because of a comedy special that was only intended to bring communities closer together, I was to be punished for a joke.

“This has weighed heavy on my spirit. It was brought to my attention by my “team” that NBC believed that I was in breach of contract because I had disparaged their brand. In my defense, I would ask how so? Or is this just another way to silence and control an outspoken voice who often battles the establishment.

“I find myself in a dark place having to make a decision that I wish I didn’t have to, but as a man, an artist, and a voice for my community I will not be silenced, controlled or treated like a piece of property. There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity.”

This comes after NBC reportedly considered firing him for stating during his “Nick Cannon: Stand Up, Don’t Shoot” comedy special that network executives wanted him to lose his “black card.” Source and Image

I can’t fault him for standing up for himself.
