Last month, Nick Cannon quit his hosting gig with “America’s Got Talent” after he and the network had some opposing views about his opinions. The former host posted to his social media to describe the reason for his decision in a lengthy caption. Nick Cannon had posted, “As a man, an artist, and a voice for my community I will not be silenced, controlled or treated like a piece of property…There is no amount of money worth my dignity or my integrity.”
Now, it looks like the network is looking for a worthy candidate to fill the slot. There are three names have come up as finalists in the search for a replacement, including…Marlon Wayans. After hearing the reason behind Cannon’s exit, Wayans told TMZ, “If they wanted (him) to be less black, I don’t know if they want to holler at me.”
No word yet on who the network will choose.
