Nick Cannon Sparks Controversy With Whiteface Instagram Pics
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.25.2014

Nick Cannon has managed to get the internet in a tizzy with some new pics and videos posted to his Instagram account. Cannon, in promoting his new album White People Party Music, posted pictures of himself in whiteface makeup with blond hair and a skater wardrobe, posting:

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!!"

He followed this up with a series of videos as the character, named "Conner Smallnut." The internet went into an uproar, accusing the singer of being racist, ignorant and hypocritical (as the Huffington Post reports). He's also had some defenders pointing out the humor and satirical value of the stunt.

Cannon also posted a picture of Robert Downey Jr. in his blackface-wearing character from Tropic Thunder, captioning it with:

Shout out to @RobertDowneyJr This is one of my favorite characters of all time! Hilarious!!! There is a big difference between Humor and Hatred.

Cannon continued to defend himself on Twitter, posting:
