Morgan Wallen Dropped by Management & Award Show / Sister Says His ‘N-Word’ Backlash is ‘Out of Control’

Published: Sunday 7th Feb 2021 by Rashad

The Morgan Wallen backlash rages on.

His fans may be opening their hearts and wallets in shows of support for the embattled Country star (as we reported here), but the industry at large is moving in the opposite direction.

As we previously posted , the 27-year-old saw backing snatched from his own record label as well as radio and television stations following the surfacing of a video that showed him drunkenly referring to his friend as the ‘n-word.’

And if distancing themselves from Wallen wasn’t enough, now his management team have joined the chorus of entities severing ties – one of many moves his sister suggests is just another nod to how cancel culture has negatively impacted the world.

More inside:

Report:

“WME, his [management] agency, was unambiguous in severing ties entirely. These decisions fell on the heels of all the major radio chains, including the No. 1 chain iHeartRadio as well as Cumulus, and the CMT network, pulling him off the air. SiriusXM and Pandora also removed him from their services for the time being, While his music remains available via on-demand streaming services, Spotify, Apple Music and others removed him from their in-house playlists and front-page spots.

…Academy of Country Music Awards; the ACM barred him from even being on the ballots. The Country Music Association took him off its digital platforms, not boding well for how he might figure into that org’s fall awards season. Within 48 hours, there was almost no major country music platform or business associate of Wallen’s that hadn’t condemned and at least temporarily broken ties with the man with the biggest all-genre blockbuster of 2021 so far.”

*****

As criticism of the incident endures, Wallen’s sister – Ashlyne – took to social media to defend him.  In a lengthy statement lifted to Instagram over the weekend, she stated:

    I agree with her statement and the things she has to say. Everyone acts like they never used a racial slur towards antone may not have been where someone could here it, but they have used it one way or another towards their own race or a different race. Everyone that sits here and post aren’t so innocent themselves. This whole cancel culture is pure trash.

    • Ugghh February 7, 2021

      I disagree. It has been a long time coming for us to get here. White people have to finally be accountable for their actions. Apologies are no longer enough. He has to be the example. That is the only way others like him will take a step back and realize their ignorant and hateful actions are unacceptable.

      Racism is not okay coming from anyone and I get what your saying but white racist are far more powerful than any other being. You can be white and racist and get away with it. Let’s not normalize the comfortability of racism anymore.

      Also TGJ could learn from this too. Stop being complicit when there is hate in your comment section.

        Racism? Please 🤣🤣🤣 It was a JOKE between friends. Y’all expect too damn much. When do you think you’ll start demanding reparations from Africa for enslaving, selling, and STILL enslaving and selling black people?

      • xtina4ever February 7, 2021

        I’m not.condoning anything this country guy did, but come on if his friend has let him say the word multiple times and never held him accountable they should cancel him 2. Obviously I see this happen between friends it was all a joke and it still happens at times or I see it between white friend and black friend who joke around with racial slurs towards each other.

      • Naïme February 7, 2021

        I agree with you.

        White people need to learn the hard way for their actions ! Good for him. It lasted too long.

      • Nomeena February 7, 2021

    I hate this generation and the cancel culture

    I am black, but sometimes we need to know when some is a joke and not meant to hurt or offend anyone

    Also, we need to give people a second chance, we are all human for God sake and we make mistakes

    • Robin February 7, 2021

      #when something

      • Nomeena February 7, 2021

        We don’t really know whether he was joking or not – he hasn’t said as much, he’s just apologised. Either way, there’s a thin line between a joke and sincerity, and he had a duty and contractual obligation not to act in a manner that could bring his profession into disrepute. I’m not necessarily agreeing with the backlash that has ensued, but if he were to be given a pass under the guise of “a joke”, then so would every other person who did the same thereafter and there would be no progress in braking down racial barriers and fixing the wrongs of our history.

    God is good. Words have consequences. We love to see it.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) February 7, 2021

  6. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) February 7, 2021

    Whatever! Rolling my eyes 🙄🙄🙄Morgan doesn’t need the label support and he can always start his own management company💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 People still buying his music. Y’all can keep hating on him.

  7. stan February 7, 2021

    it’s consequence culture, not cancel culture.

    you did something stupid, you faced the consequence.

    • Fancy BISH 💎 February 7, 2021

      Like your dad did when he never put that condóm on.

  8. G February 8, 2021

    EXACTLY!! So glad she released this letter because everything she said is so true!
    I’ve been so upset over the injustice of the situation, trying to ruin a man’s ENTIRE CAREER over a single spoken word, that i wrote a letter to the CEO of Big Loud Records (his label) telling him so.

    We should all start pushing back on this cancel culture because it has gotten waayyyy of control!! They don’t want people to improve and learn or grow. If they did, they wouldn’t be “cancelling” them but instead offering to have a conversation about it, like the person from the NAACP offered. You cannot hold someone accountable who never asked you to….YOU are NOT the moral
    Authority over them and it will only breed resentment. If you want REAL change, then reach out in LOVE not hate!!!!

    Also, if the N word is such a terrible word, then all these rappers need to STOP using it in their songs! You cant have it both ways!! The hypocrisy is unbelievable!

  9. TyTy February 8, 2021

    🥱 So at what point is THAT LEARNED BEHAVIOR NO LONGER BEHAVIOR THAT IS PROJECTED, HERE NOW, IN 2021?
    How many passes and words/thoughts of forgiveness should be given for things and words that SHOULD ALREADY BE A FKN NO-NO?
    How many of those that support him, will stand up and speak on and denounce the Bull💩 hate that exists in this country, WHILE SUPPORTING HIM AND HIS GROWTH??
    Being nice and humane isn’t working, clearly.
    How can one be trusted? Why do we have to keeeeep going back to point A??

    • Fancy BISH 💎 February 8, 2021

      Exactly! ✅ And the reason why he was dropped so fast is probably because they saw that kind of behavior from him BEFORE, and when it came to the light, they dropped his lame ass lol…good for them! 💯 The sister needs to write her THESIS to the neighbor who recorded him lmaooooo 👀🤳🏽

  10. TyTy February 8, 2021

    Sweetheart…A rapper and the rap community is a small portion of the whole community, that word affects, and has affected for years, within our older generations. There are plenty of ppl who do NOT support rappers and who do NOT agree that the word should be used PERIOD. Try again but go play in another comment section.
