The way forward for Wild ‘N Out remains to be unsure even months later. As many know, the hit improv present was pulled from the air earlier in 2020 when ViacomCBS fired host Nick Cannon for controversial statements he’d made in an interview. Since then, we haven’t heard many updates on the present, however there’s been some hypothesis that Cannon may very well be changed.

Viewers have particularly floated DC Young Fly as a successor for the longtime host. But will DC Young Fly truly substitute Cannon on Wild ‘N Out? Here’s what he’s stated.

DC Young Fly says he wouldn’t really feel proper internet hosting ‘Wild ‘N Out’ with out Nick Cannon’s approval

DC Young Fly was requested whether or not he can be open to taking up for Cannon in an Oct. 27 interview on The Breakfast Club.

The comic, who joined the present in season 7 after gaining fame on Vine for his celeb roasts, informed the hosts that if Cannon had straight provided the function to him, he would take it. But as a result of he didn’t, he doesn’t really feel comfy taking up.

“I want [it] the right way,” he shared. “I wanted [it] to be given to me from the O.G. It’s his sh*t. It’s not corporate sh*t. Corporate didn’t hire me. Nick hired me.”

“So, it’d be a backstab for me to go be like, ‘All right corporate, what y’all need me to do?’ I understand how the sport get. Y’all don’t [mess] with me like that. You solely [mess] with what I can convey you. I wanna be a part of a household, and Wild ‘N Out was household,” he continued.

Cannon was fired in July after making feedback that had been considered as anti-Semitic in the course of the June 30 episode of his podcast Cannon’s Class.

Could Nick Cannon’s habits win him his present again?

There’s no telling what is going to occur with Cannon and Wild ‘N Out. But ViacomCBS staffer Chris McCarthy signaled in a November interview with Variety that Cannon may need a shot at getting his present again.

“We continue to follow Nick’s journey and I’m impressed by how he’s owned his mistakes,” McCarthy shared. “He’s been an extended part of our family for almost 20 years and a personal friend of mine for almost half that. He’s leading by example, apologized and trying to learn to understand and help others do the same. That’s the kind of partner we want to work with.”

He didn’t share when Wild ‘N Out is likely to be again on air, however for the sake of followers, hopefully it received’t be an excessive amount of longer.
