While Nick Cannon is famous for his online feuds with other celebrities, including rapper Eminem; on Wednesday, he was applauded for being gracious and for standing up for those battling mental issues.
The TV host was randomly dragged by Orlando Brown, who made some wild accusations against him, including the fact that he performed oral sex on him while dressed as a woman.
The That’s So Raven alum, who has been very opened about his addictions and mental health struggles, was filmed while inside of a Walmart where he dropped the bombshells.
The young star revealed: “You want me to tell everybody? You want me to let everybody know what happened? Nick, I let you suck my dck. Okay? Fine, I said it. I let Nick [Cannon] suck my di^k. And I liked it, and it was okay. Nick, you sucked my dck. But everybody knows you did it as a female.”
Cannon, who hosts MTV’s Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out, decided to surprise many by issuing a statement after Brown’s confession went viral.
Mariah Carey‘s ex-husband said he is praying that Brown finds the help that he desperately needs and slammed the different platforms using him to make money when they are fully aware that he is not well.
Cannon said in part: “When I first saw this, I thought to myself was f*cking hilarious. But then after putting a little cognitive effort and analytical thought to the situation, I figured what a great opportunity for a ‘teachable moment!’ First off let me say I am praying for the young brother Orlando even though I don’t really know him personally, I have always loved and enjoyed his talent and have been a fan of his past work.”
Cannon opted to broaden the conversation by saying it is time for society to reach out to young individuals suffering from mental illness: “I watched various of these young brothers videos, and all I see is a cry out for help. So I don’t know if there are any real leaders or solid individuals in this young man’s life, but let’s embrace him and tighten him up, so he doesn’t become another lost victim to these Hollywood circumstances.”
One person had this to say about the matter: “Orlando was on Dr. Phil struggling with his drug addiction. He was not even able to remember how many children he had, their names, ages, etc. Everybody word IS NOT credible 🤷🏾♀️Praying for his sanity and mental peace tho.🙏🏽💯”
Another commenter claimed: “But … wild n out is a bunch of guys … who throw out jokes and scripts just like this…. and now since he made a joke that stuck a nerve…similar to the ones he hears all the time on his show, it’s “demonic possession… he needs help” etc. etc. The same way you give a platform for others to shuck and jive on your show for some laughs, give him that time and COUNSELING since you think it’s such an issue and that he needs help. When will we start taking accountability and helping those instead of throwing off the responsibility for someone else to pick up. If he needs help so bad and YOU RECOGNIZE IT, HELP HIM. Nick just had to get his face back bc their feelings were hurt.”
Indeed, Brown appeared on Dr. Phil a few months ago, where he left many baffled by his bizarre snake eye contact lenses and by the incoherent statement he made to host Dr. Phil McGraw.
He was strongly advised to seek help for his addictions and mental health issues, and he obliged.
