Country star apologizes for racial slur; suspended by label

Country singer Morgan Wallen has apologized after a video surfaced in which he reportedly used a racial slur and profanities. ’I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back,’ Wallen said. Big Loud Records said that Wallen’s contract has been suspended indefinitely. Multiple radio stations and streaming services pulled down his music.

Does his record label also distribute rap music that uses the completely acceptable word for one group but forbidden to other groups? If yes then he should sue the record label for discrimination.

An evolved ape made a noise. Some people might be offended. Better ruin the ape. Our skin is so thin you can see right to our rotten guts. Didn't like what he said? Wont accept his apology and self-correction? Don't buy his work. Cancel culture replace the boycott, and so the few can control the many. This is what the rest of us mean when we say the fascists are the ones calling others fascists. Grow up, America.

What exactly did he say though? Context matters. If he said "Man I think we elimnate all the _______" or if he just said "man eff you ________" to his friends. Big diff. I honestly don't care for the word but canceling someone over its use is pretty dumb. Pearl clutching is all it is. Listen to 50s and 60s country anyway. This new stuff is like pop music anyway.

We can't discuss the use of the 'N' word amongst the racially biased group of those who use it. But if a non 'clique' stereotype does the same thing, it's a criminal offense.

To the tiptoers who don't seem to understand why it's okay for black people to say the N word, and not white people, there's history behind the context of a white person saying the N word to a black person, while the opposite isn't true. Imagine being called a nerd for your interests, then at some point you call yourself a nerd as a way of taking the power out of it and making it casual. It's similar in that you wouldn't want to be called a nerd by others maliciously, but it's okay if you call yourself that.

But yet these things can say cracker and nothing happens. The 1st amendment is freedom of speech most times the words are used correctly in the context.

He shouldve used an 'a' at the end instead of the hard 'r' because apparently it makes it okay.

I have said it before, put your brains into gear before your mouth, it prevents a lot of unpleasant, yet enticed, reactions. One than will wish that they would be able to turn back the clock, however the damage is done, particularly that the insensitive often is an expression of the person's true inner feelings!!

Well that's a shame. He just put out a really solid double album. Sounded like he put a lot of work and heart into it. Nope, one bad work and it's undone. Talk about "If I could only kill a word".

Well. Context matters. Seems it wasn't said to denigrate poc, but in jest to his drunk friend. Totally harmless imho.

Only black people can use the N word. That makes sense because society is becoming more racist and so treating people differently because of the color of their skin is acceptable again.

This action was entirely appropriate. Those in the public eye should always strive to be civil. Camera phones are the great equalizer.

If you are lucky enough to be given an opportunity to make millions and have a voice, you better be aware of the consequences of violating that privilege. Morgan was not. He got exactly what he deserves. And to all you racists trying your hardest to defend his actions on here - YOU ARE A MINORITY AND WE WILL DROWN YOU OUT
