Nick Cannon Announces 'America's Got Talent' Departure Following Fallout With NBC

Broken contract though?

During a recent stand-up special, Nick Cannon came under fire for a racial joke, and NBC threatened to let him go from 'America's Got Talent'. 

Well, Nick's leaving on his own terms as he explains in a lengthy Facebook post today: 

The joke Nick made during the Showtime special was:

"But I honestly believe, once I started doing America’s Got Talent, they took my real nr card. They did! Because then like these type of people started showing up to my shows,” Cannon said in the special as he jokingly pointed to three older white audience members in the front row. “I can’t do the real nr stuff no more, because then they’ll put me on TMZ."

Production on season 12 of AGT is set to start this week.
