Morgan Wallen is speaking out.

The embattled Country music singer sat down with Good Morning America, where he discussed his usage of a racial slur in a video that leaked in Febuary.

In an interview with GMA co-host Michael Strahan, Wallen insists that he was not using the N-word in a demeaning way.

“I had some of my longtime friends in town and we had been partying that weekend and we figured we’d just go hard for the two or three days that they were there.”

“We say dumb stuff together. In our minds, it was just playful. That sounds ignorant but that’s really where it came from. It was wrong. We were all clearly drunk.”

He then went on to reveal that he donated a portion of his album sales to groups supporting Black people and Black musicians, like the Black Music Action Coalition.

“Before this incident, my album was already doing well. It was already being well-received by critics and by fans. Me and my team noticed that whenever this whole incident happened that there was a spike in my sales. So we tried to calculate what the number of – how much it actually spiked from this incident.”

“We got to a number somewhere around $500,000, and we decided to donate that money to some organizations – BMAC being the first one.”

After the video surfaced of the ‘Chasing You’ singer’s N-word usage, industry backlash followed and he issued an apology.

    Racial slurs were also fun and games for the white people who spread racist propaganda during the Jim Crow era – music and art that was full of anti-black imagery, ideas and biases that survive in the hearts and minds of some white people and need only a drunken binge to be revealed. I’ve experienced first-hand a white co-worker getting drunk in front of me and uttering the full n-word when talking about a multi-racial teenager. I had not seen any sign of racism from this man until he had too much to drink. His inner-most thoughts about black people came out. I never saw him the same way after that. Totally lost my respect.

      Are you from Stone Age? Now go back to your cave!💅🏿

    He was wrong but so many black rappers are homophobic and anti-Semitic and y’all don’t care to lecture them and make them pay for it or cancel them.

    It’s imbedded within their DNA, they always slip up and say the N word when they get excited enough.

    And they can’t help it cause it’s natural to them.
