Nick Cannon

The Real Husbands of Hollywood star believes he is a frequent victim of profiling for being "a Black man in a nice car." Cannon popped off on Twitter about a cop who pulled him over in 2011 for seemingly no reason. "Growing up, never liked cops, thought they were bullies," he tweeted, adding an anecdote about police pulling him over with guns drawn when he was a 13-year-old riding his bike. "What the hell did he think I was gonna do?!" he asked incredulously.
