Nick Cannon’s new album, White People Party Music, goes on sale April 1st and he has definitely brought attention to the album.  Cannon posted photos of himself on Instagram with white make-up, strawberry blonde hair and skater clothes.  The name of his alter ego?  Connor Smallnut.  He commented on the photo with “It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft “Bro I got drafted!!”

Once the photo was posted, Cannon’s fans were in an uproar.  Cannon took to Twitter  to defend himself and make more comments about changing his race.

“Damn I didn’t know it was going to be this hard being White! … I’m exhausted with all this “privilege” LOL #WhitePeopleProblems.”

 

Some fans thought it was funny, as shown in a retweet by Cannon:

@RobWagman: I’m mostly offended that @NickCannon as a white man is still better looking than I am. #madatnothing No way! U R Hot!! Lol”

He even dared a fan to do a black face:

@jamesjoe: @NickCannon let me relax, have fun, & wear black face. Lets see how everyone reacts” Do it! I dare you.”

This is where the controversy comes into play because when people have done the black face impersonations, they get called out as being racist.  It’s happened in the past and been a big controversy.  Regardless of the controversy this has brought, it was definitely a marketing ploy for Nick Cannon’s new album White People Party Music and it definitely worked since Nick Cannon is the hot topic on the internet this morning.
