Nick Cannon is one of the few celebrities who holds his politics close to his chest unlike other people in Hollywood. While people may assume he’s a typical liberal, the America’s Got Talent host had some surprising shade to throw at the nation’s largest abortion provider.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club on Thursday, Cannon was asked if he was afraid Donald Trump was going to take away a woman’s right to abort their pregnancy.
Within seconds Cannon turned the tables on the conversation slammed Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood for aborting millions of black babies.
“Everybody, Hillary was sneaking and cheating,” Cannon said. “Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all of that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community and forget gentrification; it’s real genocide. And it’s been like that for years. This system is not built for us.”
Cannon is correct in stating that black women represent a disproportionate amount of the percentage of the population receiving abortions from Planned Parenthood. According to a 2012 study from The Kaiser Foundation, African-Americans received 41 percent of all abortions despite being just 12 percent of the population.
The former Mr. Mariah Carey was no fan of the President-elect or Hillary Clinton.
“Picking out of these candidates was like choosing which gun you want to get shot with,” he continued. “It’s the same system, pick your oppressor. You can’t vote your way out of oppression.”
