Actor Orlando Brown (That’s So Raven ) caused quite a stir this week by claiming that Mariah’s baby daddy Nick Cannon has performed oral sex on him, repeatedly, over the past years. The pop culture site Shade Room was first to share Brown’s unsubstantiated “admission,” leaving some people wondering if the troubled actor was having a psychotic breakdown while others pondered, was there any truth to it?

When I first saw this I thought it was fucking hilarious!!!! 🤣🍆💦😂😂😂 But then after putting a little cognitive effort and analytical thought to the situation,I figured what a great opportunity for a “teachable moment”! First off let me say I am praying for the young brother Orlando even though I don’t really know him personally, I have always loved and enjoyed his talent and have been a fan of his past work. He was fucking brilliant in Major Payne, and had us all laughing on “Thats So Raven”. But this is another crucial example of when we allow our young artists to be prematurely exposed by this demonic business and left out to fend for themselves. We need better support systems for our youth and take care of our own. I watched various of this young brothers videos and all I see is a cry out for help. So I don’t know if there are any real leaders or solid individuals in this young man’s life but let’s embrace him and tighten him up so he doesn’t become another lost victim to these hollywood circumstances. I indeed believe this brother has the God given talent to be on Wildnout but this definitely ain’t the way to audition, this actually hurts my heart to see that we have allowed Orlando, along with various other young gifted performers we grew up loving, to just dwindle away after these corporations made their billions off of them. Now due to substance abuse and diagnosed psychiatric disorders our loved ones are now aimlessly begging for the attention they were once given , instead of the help they actually need. All while we sit back and just laugh… The most irresponsible parties involved in all of this is our media, specifically the “culturally conscious”. For us to continue to post slander and tear one another down for click bait to make these white supremacy propagated platforms more money is asinine and deplorable. These cannibalistic tactics only destroy “Us”. Really, in post like this, who wins??? We might chuckle, joke, pass the gossip on through our low frequency vibrations but does it truly make you feel good??? Especially knowing that there are higher powers looking down at you. So I hold @iheartradio @complex @worldstar accountable!…
It’s important to note, Brown has had some big troubles since his happier days in the spotlight appearing on major TV sitcoms. Since then, he’s been featured on the Dr. Phil Show, seemingly willing to accept help for significant substance abuse and mental health issues. Last year during an appearance on Dr. Phil (wearing snake eye contact lenses), Brown accepted Dr. Phil’s offer to undergo addiction and mental health treatment.
Taking things all in stride on the other side though, was Nick Cannon, who responded online indirectly to Brown. Cannon, posted on Instagram a screenshot of an article about the Brown video, and issued the following statement of concern:
“When I first saw this, I thought it was f–king hilarious!!!!” the 39-year-old wrote. “But then after putting a little cognitive effort and analytical thought to the situation, I figured what a great opportunity for a ‘teachable moment’! First off let me say I am praying for the young brother Orlando even though I don’t really know him personally, I have always loved and enjoyed his talent and have been a fan of his past work. He was f–king brilliant in Major Payne, and had us all laughing on That’s So Raven.”
Cannon goes on further to scold the Hollywood machine as the culprit in what he perceives as Brown’s mental break down:
“…So I don’t know if there are any real leaders or solid individuals in this young man’s life, but let’s embrace him and tighten him up, so he doesn’t become another lost victim to these Hollywood circumstances.”
I commend Cannon for taking the high road and not further escalating the matter, especially if Brown is not well and going through mental incapacitation. That said, I do find it to be a bit ironic though, maybe even poetic justice because it was just about a month ago that Cannon took to the internet to spread the unfounded claim that there was a video in circulation showing Eminem performing oral sex on another man. The video remains to be seen, but apparently, now Cannon’s and Eminem’s lawyers are having “discussions.”
All I know is this is a whole lot of “gay” talk for a bunch of alleged straight boys. And as for Cannon’s behavior specifically in the Eminem matter, I guess Slim ain’t the only one who’s shady … and petty!
