Racial slurs will not be tolerated.
And Country star Morgan Wallen is learning the hard way.
As reported, the chart-topper – who had been on an unprecedented career ascend of late – found himself at the center of a storm after a video showing him using the N-Word surfaced.
In the shocking clip, a seemingly intoxicated Wallen makes racial epithets at his drunken friend after returning from a night on the town in Nashville.
This included referring to said friend as a ‘p*ssy a** m*therf*cker’ and ‘p*ssy a** n*****.’
Despite issuing an apology, radio stations and streaming services moved quickly in removing his music from their platforms.
And now his record label is following suit.
Full story below…
Issued moments ago, a statement from Wallen’s recording home read:
“In the wake of recent events, Big Loud Records has made the decision to suspend Morgan Wallen’s recording contract indefinitely.”
It added in reference to its UMG-owned parent company:
“Republic Records fully supports Big Loud’s decision and agrees such behavior will not be tolerated.”
The unprecedented move comes after sweeping changes aimed at improving equality within the music industry were made following the Black Lives Matter protests last summer.
