LAKEWOOD, N.J.( AP)- Comic Nick Cannon says he won’t apologize for his efficiency throughout a New Jersey Catholic university’s homecoming weekend. Authorities at Georgian Court University, in Lakewood, say Cannon disregarded the terms of his contract and “crossed the line” with offending words that do not represent the school’s core values, The Asbury Park Press reported.
” I’m sorry your university does not think in freedom of speech!!!” responded Cannon on Tuesday via Twitter.
Cannon was asked “to prevent indecency and specific sexual content” due to the fact that Saturday’s show was expected to draw older alumni, university President Joseph Marbach stated in a declaration.
Marbach acknowledged the role funny plays in conversations about social issues, but disagreed with the content of Cannon’s efficiency.
” While funny often checks out severe social problems in manner ins which are fun and thought-provoking, Mr. Cannon’s act crossed the line. His words were offensive and do not represent our Mercy core values. For that, we are deeply sorry, and the university has demanded a main apology from the artist and his agents,” said Marbach.
Some students posted on social networks that the show was a success.
Fallout over the Georgian Court University show isn’t really the very first time Cannon’s jokes were met opposition. The 36-year-old comic alleges he left America’s Got Talent after being threatened with effects for making a racial joke about NBC.
A university spokeswoman decreased to say how much Cannon was spent for the funny program.
