Nick reportedly quit is job at NBC because the network treated him “differently”……
Recently Nick Cannon announced he was quitting his $4.5 million- a- season “America’s Got Talent” gig at NBC after network execs allegedly threatened to fire him over a joke he made about the network–(click here if you missed that).
Now, rumors have surfaced that Nick felt he was treated differently than other entertainers at the network:
“Nick was devastated when he learned the network was on the verge of firing him as host of ‘AGT.’ He looked at the long history of entertainers — Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, David Letterman and many others — who trashed their networks right on their shows, and the brass allowed it. Yet Nick went on Showtime, made a few “harmless comments about NBC,” and he was threatened with termination.
One example that hit home with Nick was Tracy Morgan, who made a comment during a show and suggested he might knife his son if he found out he was gay. NBC execs defended Morgan.”
Nick started to question his own self-worth as an entertainer, thinking he was being treated differently from the others because he just wasn’t that good.” (TMZ)
Sounds like a lawsuit may be coming….
