Two of country music’s biggest names are calling out Morgan Wallen after a video surfaced of the “7 Summers” singer saying the N-word.
On Feb. 2, TMZ published a video recorded by one of The Voice alum’s neighbors of Morgan using the racial slur during a night out in Nashville.
Shortly after receiving backlash from the video, Morgan apologized for his actions in a statement to E! News. “I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back,” he wrote. “There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”
On Feb. 2, Kelsea Ballerini took to Twitter to write, “The news out of Nashville tonight does not represent country music.”
Maren Morris replied to Kelsea’s comment, writing back, “yup. we’d be dropped, endorsements lost, social pariahs to music row [sic]…”
