A Catholic school demanded an apology from Nick Cannon after an 'offensive' show


Comedian Nick Cannon said he won't apologize for his performance at a New Jersey Catholic university over the weekend.

Officials at Georgian Court University said the actor/comedian disregarded the terms of his contract and "crossed the line" with offensive words that did not represent the school's core values.

"While comedy often explores serious social issues in ways that are fun and thought-provoking, Mr. Cannon's act crossed the line. His words were offensive and do not represent our Mercy core values. For that, we are deeply sorry, and the university has demanded an official apology from the artist and his representatives," university President Joseph Marbach said in a statement.

Cannon took to Twitter and wrote, "I'm sorry your university doesn’t believe in freedom of speech!!!"

Students and alumni of the university weighed in on social media.
