Days before taping his Cannon's Class episode that would get him fired from ViacomCBS over his anti-Semitic remarks, Cannon appeared in a Variety conversation with reality TV producers. Cannon said in the conversation posted June 25 he has often “had to come to the rescue of quite a few” of his Wild ‘N Out cast when they did something controversial. Cannon, who's made controversial comments before, said: “In media in general, I’m usually the devil’s advocate or angel’s advocate, as they say, in part of this cancel culture where I feel like I’m not a fan of by any means. I think we should shift the idea from ‘cancel culture’ to ‘counsel culture,’ because we all have a past. Clearly, we’re living in a very systemic infrastructure where everyone’s guilty. So in that, let’s figure out how to fix that one individual at a time. And use these times when people may say something incorrectly, or out of ignorance, and educate them. Whether it’s my fellow castmates that I have to come to the defense of, or someone that I don’t know at all may have made an insensitive tweet 10 years ago, I’m going to step up and I’m going to speak truth to it."
