Nick Cannon has spoken out in defense of rapper DaBaby who faced backlash for homophobic remarks he made at a music festival.
“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,” said Cannon.
“We believe apologizing is weakness when it actually, takes great strength to step up to anyone and say, ‘I was wrong.’ I know Baby. And that’s a strong brother…. That man just lost his pops, his brother, all the things that he… and still to have that big smile that he has every day, knowing everything,” he continued.
“To say ‘I’m sorry,’ that’s a self-proclamation. To apologize is an action,” Cannon added. “Let’s use this as an opportunity for education. Because that’s what happened in my scenario.”
