Did Nick Cannon go a little too far
in the name of self promotion?
Yesterday the rapper and America's Got Talent
some rather interesting photos and videos on his Instagram wherein he was in "whiteface" makeup. Not only that but he was donning a blonde wig, a different looking wardrobe and using a 'skater boy' accent to further bring his new persona to life.
With hashtags out the wazoo Cannon proclaimed "It's official... I'm White!!!" He even gave his new alternate identity a name, Connor Smallnut.
Historically when a person wears "blackface" makeup, a racial uproar has occured as most people find the transformation offensive. There was of course most people responding to Cannon's in a negative way claiming he was being "racist", "ignorant" and "hypocritical" but a select few have found his makeup job to be "hilarious".
Cannon has been replying consistently to people calling him out, whether good or bad, on Twitter and has replied "Just relax and have fun!!"
His new album will be in stores on April 1st, which is aptly titled "White People Party Music".
What do you think about Nick Cannon's take on "whiteface"?
