Nick Cannon Introduces Whiteface Persona Connor Smallnut

Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon is going to great lengths to promote his new album White People Party Music, due April 1. The 33-year-old comedian has shared photos and video of himself in whiteface, sporting a wig, new wardrobe, makeup, and even a frat boy accent to match.

He took to the streets of L.A. to debut his white persona, which he dubbed “Connor Smallnut.”

“It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft “Bro I got drafted!!” said the “America’s Got Talent” host.

He was inspired by Robert Downey Jr.’s blackface character from Tropic Thunder. “Shout out to @RobertDowneyJr This is one of my favorite characters of all time! Hilarious!!! There is a big difference between Humor and Hatred,” said Nick.

But not everyone was laughing at his joke. “Not cool. Does not make it ok for u to do a white face just like it’s not ok to do a black face. Come on man,” wrote one Instagram commenter, while others jumped to his defense.

“Man robert Downey Jr did black face in tropic tunder and it was great!!!! So please stop the hate! Comedy is comedy as long as its done out of humor not hate.”

Nick responded to all the controversy, tweeting, “Damn I didn’t know it was going to be this hard being White! … I’m exhausted with all this ‘privilege’ LOL #WhitePeopleProblems.”

    @KenBarbUK, Exactly.

    Like that comment about being “privileged” like come on… he is making it harder for himself. We don’t live in the 50′s anymore. He is a successful man, and he is black, color has nothing do to with it.

    Obviously this comment section is full of sensitive, disgruntled white people. Don’t fret dudes, at least double wides are now flood proof in some areas.

    @r.c., You think white people are mad at this? No. That would be black people when white people do this. This will not be on TV or the major tabloids but if a white person did “black face” it would be everyone. Black people would get mad. Ask Jouliane Hough.

    This reinforces that Cannon is NOT funny. At all. So corny. And this is very offensive. Too many yes men around this clown.

    I’m not offended by a black guy putting on make up to look white. I am offended that if you inverse the situation, it would not be ok. So what if a white guy put on make up to look black and called himself Javaris Welfarerecipient, or Tyrone Babydaddy? I bet even the thought of that makes a lot of blacks mad. Oh, and black people, notice that whites are not rioting and going ape $#!t in the streets.

    I think we have all established everyone is too sensitive, so lets just air on the side of wiseness and just not impersonate (especially ridicule) any other race! Although some people might be completely out of material, I don’t want to say this but honestly for real the only people I have ever heard complain about race is black people, straight up! MLK jr would be turnin in his grave like remind my soul.

    I guess only white people can be racists. Probably would not care if the African American community would stop crying racist at everything. As long as that card is going to keep being played, then I will call it racist.
