Nick Cannon has decided to leave NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Last week, the actor/host found himself in hot water after making an off-script joke about NBC during his stand-up special – while his contract clearly states that he can’t speak about NBC without running it by them first. While promoting the show on Howard Stern, Nick made it worse with a second joke, when asked about the original one:
“If they fire me… then I can sue them then I can create a whole controversy, NBC hates black people.”
Welp, though he didn’t get fired, he has decided to step down anyway after 8 seasons. Check out his statement below. Will you miss him?
