Mickey Guyton, Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini And More Speak Out Following Morgan Wallen’s Use Of A Racial Slur

Morgan Wallen issued an apology following the use of a racial slur outside of his Nashville home on Tuesday (Feb. 2), prompting fellow country stars Mickey Guyton, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris and more to speak out on the topic.

“The hate runs deep. Smfh,” Guyton tweeted. “This is not his first time using that ‘unacceptable’ racial slur and we all known that. So what exactly are y’all going to do about it. Crickets won’t work this time.” Later adding, “promises to do better don’t mean sh*t.”

“The news out of Nashville tonight does not represent country music,” Ballerini said.

“It actually IS representative of our town because this isn’t his first “scuffle” and he just demolished a huge streaming record last month regardless,” Maren Morris shared. “We all know it wasn’t his first time using that word. We keep them rich and protected at all costs with no recourse.”

Later, Ballerini’s quoted Retweet that read “the truth is the truth,” quoting a fan named Bonnie who tweeted “if a female artist did 5% of the sh*t he has pulled she would be dropped immediately by everyone.”

Morris immediately replied to the tweet agreeing with the fan and Ballerini saying, “yup. We’d be dropped, endorsements lost, social pariahs to music row…”

Kelleigh Bannen shared her opinion as well on Twitter saying, “I get the impulse to be like “this isn’t my Nashville/country music” but let’s not bypass here. We’ve got work to do fam.”

Cassie Kelley, the wife of Lady A’s Charles Kelley, even tweeted saying, “Country music is one of my favorite families & i will always show up for it and for that reason, we cannot support anyone using racist slurs, full stop. We’ll rot from the inside out. No one is perfect, but loving someone means holding up a mirror when they need to change.

According to a video obtained by TMZ, Wallen was recorded on Sunday (Jan. 31) by a neighbors ring camera spouting out profanities and a racial slur, the n-word.

“Take care of this pu**y a*s motherf*****,” Wallen said before shouting, “take care of this p*ssy ass n***er” before he heading back into his home, accompanied by a friend.

Wallen shared an apology with the outlet saying that he is “embarrassed and sorry” for using the completely unacceptable racial slur.

“I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back. There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”

Wallen recently released his album, Dangerous: The Double Album, which went on to break records previously held by Carrie Underwood and Luke Combs. The sophomore album was released on January 8 and includes hit songs such as “More Than My Hometown,” “7 Summers,” “Heartless (feat. Diplo),” “Cover Me Up” and more.
