Singer Nick Cannon is hyping his new album “White People Party Music”… by dressing up in whiteface.
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.”
