Nick Cannon is apologizing for anti-Semitic remarks he made during a recent podcast episode.

"First and foremost I extend my deepest and most sincere apologies to my Jewish sisters and brothers for the hurtful and divisive words that came out of my mouth during my interview with Richard Griffin," Cannon, 39, wrote on Twitter Wednesday evening.

"They reinforced the worst stereotypes of a proud and magnificent people and I feel ashamed of the uninformed and naïve place that these words came from," he wrote, adding that the interview, which was part of his Cannon's Class podcast, has been removed.

"While the Jewish experience encompasses more than 5,000 years and there is so much I have yet to learn, I have had at least a minor history lesson over the past few days and to say that it is eye-opening would be a vast understatement," Cannon continued.

The actor expressed his "gratitude" to "Rabbis, community leaders and institutions who reached out to me to help enlighten me, instead of chastising me."

"I want to assure my Jewish friends, new and old, that this is only the beginning of my education—I am committed to deeper connections, more profound learning and strengthening the bond between our two cultures today and every day going forward," he concluded.
