Morgan Wallen Issues New Apology Video After ‘N-Word’ Scandal: ‘I Fully Accept Any Penalties’

Published: Thursday 11th Feb 2021 by Rashad

Country star Morgan Wallen may have enjoyed a sales INCREASE after the public fallout stemming from a leaked video that captured him referring to a friend the ‘N-word’ (click here to read), but the 27-year-old has little to celebrate as the industry backlash has seen him dropped by his own label, management team, radio stations, award shows, TV networks, and more.

Though he issued an apologetic statement just a day after the controversial video first began making its rounds, he’s now returned with another apology – this time in video form and addressing the reparative steps he’s taken that include practicing sobriety, meeting with the NAACP, learning cultural competence and sensitivity, and more.

Look inside to see the visual lifted to his official Instagram handle Wednesday night (February 10).

“I let so many people down … And I’m not OK with that,” Wallen says in his new video message. “So this week I’ve been waiting to say anything further until I got the chance to apologize to those closest to me that I knew I personally hurt. I also accepted organizations from some amazing Black organizations, executives, and leaders to engage in some very real and honest conversations … I appreciate those who still see something in me and have defended me, but for today, please don’t. I was wrong. It’s on me to take ownership for this and I fully accept any penalties I am facing.”

Later in the clip he explains:

“…the video you saw was me on hour 72 of 72 on a bender” and that “…since that video was taken, I’ve been sober for nine days. It’s not all that long of a time, but it’s enough to know that the man in that video is not the man that I’m trying to be … Who knows if I’ll be able to live down all the mistakes I’ve made, but I’m certainly going to try. I’m going to spend some time taking back control of my habit, living healthy, and being proud of my actions.”

    So let me ask this… what is that black people actually WANT? What is it you REQUIRE in order to ever FORGIVE somebody?

You and that other dumb b**** Marilyn are two stupid peas in a pod,

      • Shayla Queen 👑 February 11, 2021

        Rhetorical question? Is was a GENUINE question. Judging by not only your comment but also your level of anger, hate and hostility, I’d say my point is proven. You want nothing, but to stay angry and hateful 💋

      • Shayla Queen 👑 February 11, 2021

        You never come back with an intelligent response to ADD to the conversation because clearly you don’t have one, instead resorting to “blah blah blah” and spewing hate, which is all the left does as they worry they may actually see there is ACTUALLY logic and resolution on the other side…

      • Holliewuudd February 11, 2021

        Agreed

    • UHoesFunny February 11, 2021

      @Shayla Queef Black ppl want exactly what’s happening, for him to face his consequences and be stripped of anything going for himself. Basically cancel the fool. The message must be clear, you cannot keep blaming your racist antics on “drunken night” or “ignorance”. It’s time for you to be held accountable white boy.

  4. I Hate whyyt n blcc bitzzez February 11, 2021

    F*** NAACP..

  5. Livelife&Learn&Forgive February 11, 2021

    God I’m over this crap already he made a mistake let him learn from it and grow. If he makes that mistake again then he was never sorry. People swear that they are innocent and never made a mistake in their life. Everyone in this world has been racist and one point in their life growing up or as an adulti. Everyone acts like they are innocent.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 February 11, 2021

      THIS 💯

    • UHoesFunny February 11, 2021

      Lol stfu. You all wanna be forgiven for being racist. Not in 2021 😹😹

    First, I am in NO way caping for him. But as a black man, I’m trying to figure out why folks are going so Hard after him. To me, he was talking to his friend and using it as a term of endearment. While I completely DISAGREE with any wypipo using the word, I don’t feel like HE was using it in a racist way. Again, not caping for him AT ALL but only calling it how I see it. Second, because I think this, that doesn’t mean that he is NOT racists as I’ve known several folks from Tennessee who were. But in the context of the scenario in which he’s being cancelled, I don’t think race played a factor in that situation because he wasn’t using it in a derogatory way…in my opinion

    • UHoesFunny February 11, 2021

      Bye Uncle Tom. You’re the reason white people get away with saying the N-word in the first place. Enabler. Good night c00n.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 February 11, 2021

        And what’s so BAD about saying the “n word” anyway? Does it end yo life? Strip you off yo bags? Clowns! All y’all need some discipline 👋🏽👋🏽👋🏽👋🏽

      • Holliewuudd February 11, 2021

        Uncle Tom? Okie Dobie smokie. Keep being hypersensitive and hypocritical and see how far that takes you in life. Good luck with that, Ashy!

    • Livelife&Learn&Forgive February 11, 2021

      Exactly I’m sorry, I’m here for equality etc. Theirs a difference when using the word in a derogatory way and joking with a friend. Goes for any race. What happenes and being caught on camera was awful. Yes hold him accountable, but I mean going this hard is ridiculous. Cancel culture is the worst. I have family members who are black and they always joking around calling each other racist names in a fun jokingly way with cousins friends etc.

      • Nomeena February 11, 2021

        The thing is, black people didn’t cancel him – his record execs, sponsors, CMA people are all white. Most black people had probably never heard of him or could care less that he used the word.

        Although it comes across as rehearsed, he sounds sincere. And s***. He could pillow talk dirty to me with that accent all night long lol.

  7. Abel February 11, 2021

    He can c** into my mouth.
    As a black man who hates the world n* even when it’s used by black people I forgive him.

  8. Shayla Queen 👑 February 11, 2021

    It just looks like black people are completely jealous of whites. Anything they can do to “end” them, they will. And then everything goes to hell…

    Look at South Africa for example. They murder white farmers, “reclaim” the land, then suffer a food draught because they can’t farm and were too STUPID to think about that before LITERALLY biting the hand that fed them 💯🤣🤳🏽

    • Holliewuudd February 11, 2021

      Shayla! You sound real dumb right now. Did that really just come out of your mouth?? The ignorance

      • Shayla Queen 👑 February 11, 2021

        What part do you have a problem with? The truth? Because that’s really what the issue is… You’re no longer allowed to speak the truth. Fascism and Nazism under the guise of anti-fascism and democracy.

        And, yes, blacks are MURDERING whites in South Africa everyday! You won’t find it on CNN because it ruins the “all whites are racist” narrative they spin to cause more and more division. But… that’s not to say you can’t use your phone and fingers to look it up yourself.

        Good day.

  9. Slick February 11, 2021

    This is ridiculous. History was horrid for African Americans. No one can take that away.

    But until the N word isn’t glorified in music and in the hip hop culture by African Americans, then this will never be taken seriously.

    Its blatant hypocrisy. You have to also do as you say. Nobody is exempt.

  10. Fancy BISH 💎 February 11, 2021

    Black people can use the n-word as much as they like, we have our OWN voice and we have the FLAVOR 😂 Tired of white people saying what we can and cannot do, and using us…obsessed CREEPS lol…ya’ll have been obsessed with black people ever since you laid your beady eyes on us 🤳🏽 And STILL are 💋 Trailer trash sewer queen and mariwench are obsessed cave bishes too lmaooooo…raggedy ass heffas coming to a black site everyday spewing your hatred…busted heffas 🤣
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-fIjuamWFw
    We can use it and Miss Morgan cannot…end of story 💯🤳🏽💋

    • Slick February 12, 2021

      Fancy…meh c’mon you know what I said makes sense. Other cultures and ethnicities are just as lovely. You know it’s not that.

      • Fancy BISH 💎 February 12, 2021

        I understand what you’re saying…Oprah wants the word gone and doesn’t like to hear it, period….but the n-word would STILL be on the lips and in the minds of white people regardless! They created the negative usage of the word towards blacks (and others)! They never stopped using it after all these years as phones around the world have captured! And they’re still wrong for using it in the first place lol…I understand that certain people want it gone for good, wishful thinking…and of course other cultures and ethnicities are lovely and flavorful, lawd yes duh lol…but I have to say this…every time black people, like ME, say anything good about ourselves, we have to hear, “Others are good too.” You say Black Lives Matter and you have to hear, “All lives matter too.” It’s annoying! And you know why they do it..well, I know why👀 So boom, we have FLAVOR, period lol 💯💋Thank you for your reply🤳🏽
