Nick Cannon had a run-in with the LAPD early this morning, and tweeted that he gets “pulled over like once a week… because I’m a Black man in a nice car.”
The “America’s Got Talent” host’s latest encounter with the police went a lot smoother.
“For the 1st time ever… The Cop let me go! He was a black man!” wrote Cannon, adding, “‘Preciate it Brotha!”
He then explained his longstanding dislike for the police: “Growing up, I never liked Cops. Always felt they were bullies. I guess I shouldn’t stereotype… know right!”
Still, he briefly mentioned a run-in he had as a child. “At age 13 a Cop pulled me over on my bike with his gun drawn,” tweeted Cannon. “What the hell did he think I was going to do?!”
“Now in LA I get pulled over like once a week,” noted Cannon, who speculated, “Honestly, I think it’s because I’m a Black man in a nice car.”
