Nick Cannon

At least Mariah Carey is sticking by her man.

Nick Cannon is causing a stir over an Instagram photo he’s shared to promote his new album, White People Party Music. The pic, which many are calling racist, features a slap happy Cannon wearing... "white face?"

The America's Got Talent host defended his decision to don the controversial look, saying he did it in the spirit of his new music, but fans aren't buying it. Wife Mariah Carey, on the other hand, who is of mixed parentage, fully supports her hubby's actions, tweeting, "Nice!!!"

Hey, they say no publicity is bad publicity.
