What does Nick Cannon have to say about Orlando Browns’ claims?
Nick Cannon has broken his silence on the alleged claims.
A few hours after the video begun to make headlines, Nick shared a screenshot of one of those headlines on Instagram. The post included a lengthy statement.
The America’s Got Talent host initially revealed that he thought the post was hilarious. He, however, had a few other thoughts after he had time for his thoughts to settle.
“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,” Nick penned as he indirectly denied the act could have even happened as he doesn’t even know the actor on a personal level.
Cannon, however, thinks the actor needs help.
He added: “But this is another crucial example of when we allow our young artists to be prematurely exposed by this demonic business and left out to fend for themselves. We need better support systems for our youth and take care of our own.”
“I watched various of this 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. I indeed believe this brother has the God given talent to be on Wildnout but this definitely ain’t the way to audition, this actually hurts my heart to see that we have allowed Orlando, along with various other young gifted performers we grew up loving, to just dwindle away after these corporations made their billions off of them. “
Cannon continued to add that he hoped the young actor would get the help that he needed. As opposed to people just finding humor in the video clip.
Nick Cannon concluded his post by taking a dig at several media outlets that assisted in calling attention to the video and pushing it to go viral.
