Nick Cannon, Instagram


Is that you, Nick Cannon?

In a slightly surprising marketing move, Mariah Carey's other half took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of himself dressed in whiteface. The racial stunt is part of promotional work for his upcoming album White People Party Music.

"It's official... I'm White!!!" Cannon captioned the pic. "#WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft ‘Bro I got drafted!!'"

In the photo, Cannon is unrecognizable in makeup with a light-colored wig. Completing his white guy look is a beanie hat, jeans and a white tee under a plaid shirt.

And that's not all. You'll never believe what the 33-year-old named his Caucasian alter-ego. "Introducing Connor Smallnut!! #wppm," he captioned an Instagram video in which he introduces himself under the comedic pseudonym.

Cannon also shared an Instagram pic of Robert Downey Jr.'s blackface character from the movie Tropic Thunder. He wrote with the photo, "Shout out to @RobertDowneyJr This is one of my favorite characters of all time! Hilarious!!! There is a big difference between Humor and Hatred."

What do you think of Cannon's whiteface look?
