One day after Nick Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS, Diddy has decided to step up. On July 14, ViacomCBS announced that Cannon was fired and his signature show, “Wild N Out,” would be discontinued following statements by Cannon that were viewed as anti-Semitic.

Sean “Diddy” Combs weighed in on the situation by offering Cannon support and possibly a new home for the hit show, “Wild N Out.”

“Nick come home to @revolttv Truly Black-owned! We got your back. And love you and what you have done for the culture. We are for our people first! For us! By us,” Diddy posted in a comment on The Shade Room’s Instagram account.

Diddy launched Revolt TV in 2013 after Comcast-Corporation announced that it would carry several minority-owned networks. Oprah’s OWN network was also created during that time.

Cannon could likely move the “Wild N Out” brand to Revolt TV, but would probably have to fight for ownership of the show since it’s officially owned by ViacomCBS. Another option would be for Cannon to create a similar show with a new a name and brand.

Along with Diddy, several other celebrities have stepped up to defend Cannon. “I’m with you O.G.,” D.C. Young Fly, posted on Instagram. “Since my ‘Wild N Out’ audition, O.G. @nickcannon been f—g with me! Now we’re being silenced for speaking our history on what happened to us.”

Cannon has yet to respond in regards Diddy’s latest offer.
