American comedian, rapper, Nick Cannon has spoken out against DaBaby’s homophobic remarks.

Cannon expressed his opinion on the situation, saying that the US rapper’s show should not be canceled.

The father of seven, speaking on the radio show The Breakfast Club, stated that he does not believe in cancel culture.

“First of all, I think not only in the black community — and I’ve experienced it — but definitely just men a lot of times, we have that ego. We believe apologizing is weakness when it actually takes great strength to step up to anyone and say, ‘I was wrong,’” Cannon said on the radio show.

He recognized that DaBaby’s remarks were uncalled for and predicted that the Under the Sun rapper will go through a period of “growth” as a result of the incident.

“I challenge all these people who actually want to cancel somebody, and even specifically in DaBaby’s situation, let’s use this as an opportunity for education. Because that’s what happened in my scenario to where I still stuck true to the truths. [My minister] told me that I don’t ever want falsehood to come out of my mouth, so if I’m saying something that is not correct about your community, show me where I’m incorrect. Correct me.”

The Drumline singer continued, “If I’m saying these things about the LGBTQIA community, show me where I’m wrong. Not only is that going to help me, but you’re going to help so many other people who think like me. There are so many DaBabys out there.”
