Fox has confirmed that it is sticking with Nick Cannon as the host of its popular reality competition series “The Masked Singer” following his apology for making anti-Semitic comments.

During a June 30 episode of the actor’s YouTube series, “Cannon’s Class,” featuring Public Enemy rapper Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin, the men discussed conspiracy theories including those about Jewish people. Cannon said that Black people are the “true Jews” and shared his belief that Black people are “Semitic people.”

“You can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people,” he said. “That’s our birthright. So if that’s truly our birthright, there’s no hate involved.”

He also stated that white people are “a little less” than Black people because they lack melanin in their skin, among other comments.
