Nick Cannon has teamed up with Chris Brown for his new indie film, She Ball, which focuses on a women’s street basketball team, and the famed entertainer is getting flack for his decision to cast Brown. People online were scolding Cannon for giving Chris, who was convicted of felony assault for beating Rihanna, a chance.
When TMZ caught up with Nick at the airport to ask him about the wave of backlash, he said that the media loves to cast a negative light on black entertainers. Cannon asked, “What about Sean Penn? They ever hate on his past and the movies he did?”
Nick was referring to allegations surrounding Sean Penn hitting his then-wife Madonna, which the “Like a Virgin” singer denies.
