Nick Cannon (the guy who’s married to Mariah Carey) is getting ready to release a new album called “White People Party Music,” which hits stores on April 1. How’s does he go about garnering a little Internet buzz? By rocking whiteface and blasting out pics on his Instagram, of course! I like his caption:

 

It’s official… I’m White!!! #WHITEPEOPLEPARTYMUSIC #Wppm in stores April 1st!!!!!!Dude Go Get It!!!Join The Party!!!! #GoodCredit #DogKissing #BeerPong #FarmersMarkets #FistPumping #CreamCheeseEating #RacialDraft “Bro I got drafted!!”

 
Because the Internet is a constant outrage circlejerk, people are pissed, calling the cheap publicity stunt insensitive and such. There’s no way this is going to end well for anyone.
 
Every blogger on the planet, queue your 2000-word thinkpiece opuses about whiteface/blackface in 2014.
 

Meanwhile, let’s remember that this little act of trolling is probably the most relevant thing Nick Cannon has done in years. Don’t worry — if you don’t pay him any attention, he’ll return to the troll-hole in which he came.
