Nick Cannon is a father-of-12.

“Why does this sound like he's gonna make them go on a reality competition and make them compete to hangout with their father,” one user penned, while another joked, “Is he doing a raffle?”

Others compared his remarks to meeting a celebrity, with one person saying, “A meet & greet with your own children is absolutely insane,” as a second added, “A press day for your own children is wild 😂.”

“‘Opportunity’ is a diabolical word to use in reference to allowing your kids to spend time with you,” one more individual echoed.
