Recently, Nick Cannon has come under fire for his performance at Georgian Court University. The catholic university in Lakewood, New Jersey said Nick Cannon did not follow the terms of his contract and crossed the line using ‘offensive’ words during the performance that do not represent the core values. According a Georgian Court spokesperson, Nick Cannon signed a contract to ‘avoid vulgarity and explicit sexual content in his performance’, but he did not.
Nick Cannon says he refuses to apologize and stands by his performance during the university’s homecoming weekend.
The New York Daily News reports:
After the Sept. 20 performance, Marbach sent a letter to the GCU community apologizing for the “America’s Got Talent” host’s behavior — and asking him for an apology, but Cannon wasn’t so sorry.
A spokesperson for GCU confirmed the letter’s authenticity to the Daily News. It echoed the university’s “profound disappointment” in Cannon’s portion of the comedy showcase.
The letter stated: “While comedy often explores serious social issues in ways that are fun and thought-provoking, Mr. Cannon’s act crossed the line. His words were offensives and do not represent our Mercy core values.”
Marbach wrote that they anticipated that the university would get the “NBC or MTV version of Mr. Cannon.”
“We did not,” he said. “That was unfortunate.”
The event took place during the school’s reunion weekend at Lakewood’s Strand Theatre, which was attended by both new students and many alumni.
Georgian Court University was established in 1908 as a women’s college, but became fully coeducational in 2013.
