Cannon’s career began in 1995 when he was a warm-up actor for Nickelodeon’s sketch comedy series All That, starring Mitchell and Kenan Thompson. He later became a full-time cast member in 1998.
In November, The Mask Singer host had Mitchell as a guest on his show and gave the actor his flowers for helping him establish his comedic career with the network.
Cannon’s response came after Hampton took to TikTok on Monday and shared the seven-second clip entitled “You can definitely be blinded by love” with a pink heart emoji.
