(Newser) – Nick Cannon chose an ... interesting tactic to promote his new album: He donned whiteface. He introduced the new alter-ego on Instagram thusly: "Connor Smallnuts the name bro. Somebody should sign this guy. He's good." Fittingly, the soon-to-be-released album he's promoting is titled White People Party Music. Now, as you might imagine, Cannon has received a lot of criticism for the whiteface—not surprising when you recall the countless times people dressed in blackface have stirred up trouble.
