Nick...we mean Connor...made his debut on Instagram with this pic of himself in a flannel, beanie and red hair. "It's official...I'm white!" he announced as Twitter began buzzing with both positive and negative feedback for his new look. "How does it feel to be white?" one user asked. "Great, I'm no longer afraid of the police! LOL," Nick replied.
The stunt has been criticized as racist and comparable to white people donning blackface, but Nick's not fazed. "Duuuuuude everybody Chil-lax! -Connor Smallnut," he added in response to the controversy with another pic in character. He also posted a shot of Robert Downey Jr. playing a black solider in Tropic Thunder as a black solider, calling it "one of my favorite characters."
Nick probably knows this the only reason anyone is talking about his album for a change, so at least we can give him points for making us remember him for something other than being Mr. Mariah Carey.
