Things have been a little quiet outrage-wise. Perhaps the brief hint of springtime lifted the collective mood and turned our attention away from our own delicate sensibilities. Thankfully, with a new nor'easter threatening the east coast, there are some fresh new kerfluffles to completely lose our shit over.
1. Nick Cannon put on "Whiteface" to promote his new album.
To promote his new album, "White People Party Music," Nick Cannon revealed his character, "Connor Smallnut" (LOL!), a white kid for which he dons "whiteface" and dresses how a white middle-schooler might dress if he wants to be a skateboarder but his mom will only let him shop at Target.
According to The New York Daily News, Cannon sent social media networks "into meltdown" when the pic was shared on Sunday. By "meltdown," they mean "a lot of comments and that's about it." You can't use "social media meltdown" frivolously in a post-Ellen-Oscar-Selfie world.
The pic was accompanied by a swarm of hashtags containing go-to hack jokes about white people:
