Nick Cannon has expressed joy at Red Table Talk‘s cancelation, and said Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Facebook Watch talk show was always “toxic.”
The comments came on the Wild ‘n Out host’s new radio show The Daily Cannon, with Nick saying Will Smith’s infamous slap of Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards would have never happened if the former hadn’t appeared on his wife’s talk show.
“If there was no Red Table Talk, then he wouldn’t have slapped the shit out of Chris Rock,” Nick said, adding, “That was royalty, Will and Jada. Then they brought it to the table. I don’t want to know all this shit about y’all.”
Will Smith had appeared on Red Table Talk shortly after R&B singer August Alsina had claimed that he’d been in a years-long affair with Jada, which she later confirmed during her show. Will sat down and admitted the “entanglement” nearly ruined their relationship.
“I was devastated even worse than a divorce,” Will said. “We broke up within our marriage and got back together again. We had to rebuild with new rules and something way, completely different.”
Nick Cannon slammed these “toxic table” conversations and said he didn’t want to know this much about the Smiths.
“I just want to mind my Black-owned business. I don’t want to be up in everybody else’s kitchen,” he said on his radio show. “Keep that shit to y’all selves.”
Jada Pinkett Smith’s talk show was one of many Facebook Watch programs to be shut down after Meta announced they’d be shuttering the platform on Thursday (April 27).
In other Nick Cannon news, the multi-hyphenate stopped by the Howie Mandel Does Stuff podcast, where he talked about everything from his time as a child star to his massive family.
He explained that despite having 12 children he’s an advocate for birth control and that he’s trying to be a more supportive man and father, but his “super sperm” keeps getting him into trouble.
“I’m gonna be honest, I got some super sperm or something ’cause I’ve practiced birth control, and people still got pregnant,” he said to the comedian. “But, to say that, I’m trying to be as responsible as I possibly can, learning lessons.”
Earlier this month, he went on Howard Stern’s radio show and made headlines when he struggled with remembering all of his children’s names, whose names include Moroccan, Monroe, Golden, Powerful Queen, Zion, Zillion, Legendary, Onyx, Rise, Beautiful, Halo, and the late Zen who passed at 5 months old in December 2021 after being diagnosed with brain cancer.
