Nick Cannon, apparently minding the business of Kevin Hart‘s bag and not his own, dredged up a bunch of homophobic tweets from a trio of white comediennes in a bid to get the cancellation popping. But as Twitter reminded Cannon, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, and Chelsea Handler have all been sufficiently checked in the past but that didn’t stay his hand.
Schumer, Silverman, and Handler’s checkered online and questionably tasteless pasts have been put through the social media blender although it is true that those women have gone on to continue working. The connection to Hart is obvious, this after some homophobic jokes of his surfaced online thus leading him to push back on apologizing for the comments but also eventually losing a cushy Oscars hosting gig.
Now that the smoke is cleared and Hart’s team are most likely securing what’s left of his career in the wake of this, Cannon calling out the comediennes comes as a case of too little, too late.
We’ve captured some of the reactions to Nick Cannon blasting these white comediennes way after the fact below and on the following pages.
Nick Cannon really thought he killed it with those tweets. We literally pay no mind to any of those women. pic.twitter.com/DNCFmkBKm7— Prayers Down (@flowerrebelrose) December 8, 2018

And Nick Cannon can kiss my ass by bringing up the homophobic tweets of those white women.— LL Fool J (@Oddreyonna) December 8, 2018
He's being deliberately obtuse because what Kevin said was wrong. Homophobia is wrong no matter the color of the person spewing the hate.
Nick Cannon already on his last leg with the black community, why make himself look even more corny than he already is... pic.twitter.com/LRdpXLRGKb— REMBR 🦉 U R (@gorgeousglamher) December 8, 2018
This Nick Cannon shit is the Bill Cosby case all over again. A bunch of whataboutisms b/c black people do not like holding black men accountable. They didn’t see the need to address those white women (ignored when others did) until they realized they couldn’t be homophobic too.— Riley Freeman (@TrillaryBlinton) December 8, 2018
Nick cannon is an idiot and needs to realize, people were criticizing kevin hart for his gay tweets, cause he was wrong for his ....[gay tweets] , not cause he's black— Vine Memories (@VineMemories_) December 8, 2018
Pls Nick Cannon has proudly posted stories of him repeatedly making fun of his son because of some winter shoes Nick didn’t approve of. https://t.co/AS0xGacbTg— PR Papi (@jlojno) December 8, 2018

It’s cool Nick Cannon is tryna support a fellow actor/comedian, but arguing “white people get away with being trash, so black people should too” is always a dumb way to defend somebody.— UH82CIT 🙃 🇳🇬 (@PrinceHAK33M) December 8, 2018
Nick Cannon snitching on white women for making homophobic statements on twitter to support Kevin Hart for doing it is the most interesting, annoying, funny, disturbing, ridiculous thing I’ve seen in December so far.— Ibrahim Moizoos (@AfrikanFengShui) December 8, 2018
Nick Cannon pulling up tweets of Caucasian comediennes black people don’t rock with anyway is how I know y’all just don’t get it or anything for that matter— Pastor Hot Girl (@AmandaDannielle) December 8, 2018

Nick Cannon: Yeah. Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman have homophobic tweets too. Y'all gonna stop liking them now?— America is musty 2021 (@DragonflyJonez) December 8, 2018
Me: *whispers*.......................... nigga where have you been
Nick Cannon thinking nobody ever calls Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, and Chelsea Handler for statements they've made is funnier than any episode of Wild'n Out.— Craig Bro Dude (@CraigSJ) December 8, 2018
