Nick Cannon Introduces Whiteface Alter Ego Connor Smallnut. Funny Or Offensive?
Nick Cannon is a jack of all trades.
He’s an actor, radio personality, television host, rapper and a comedian. In an effort to promote his forthcoming album entitled White People Party Music, Nick has introduced a whiteface alter ego named Connor Smallnut.
“It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC#Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!” he wrote on a photo of his character on Instagram.
However, not everyone is laughing. Some are accusing Nick of being racist. Comparing his whiteface persona to blackface characters of years past that have been universally condemned as being offensive to African Americans.
