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.”
Maren Morris replied to Kelsea’s comment, writing back, “yup. we’d be dropped, endorsements lost, social pariahs to music row [sic]…”
