The singer shared an Instagram pic of himself in white makeup with the caption, "It's official ... I'm White!!!"
Cannon's message continued, “#WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft 'Bro I got drafted!!'"
While some commenters thought the stunt was “hilarious,” others called it “racist.”
Nick followed up the pic with some tweets, including, “Hold up… What the f**k is “White Face”??? Did I just create a new term??? Nice!!! LOL” and “Damn I didn't know it was going to be this hard being White! ... I'm exhausted with all this "privilege" LOL #WhitePeopleProblems.”
