Morgan Wallen Removed From Country Radio Following His Use Of N-Word

Morgan Wallen has been removed from thousands of Country radio stations following his use of the n-word. The country superstar has not only been pulled from rotation on Cumulus Media’s 400+ stations but also iHeartMedia’s 800+ stations as well as Entercom and Beasley stations.

According to Variety, Cumulus, the world’s second largest radio chain, has sent an email to the program directors of its 400+ stations to “immediately” remove Wallen from their playlists. In the email with the subject line of “MORGAN WALLEN — EXTREMELY IMPORTANT,” the message read “team, unfortunately country music star Morgan Wallen was captured on video Sunday evening using a racial slur. Effective immediately we request that all of Morgan Wallen’s music be removed from our playlists without exception. More to follow.”

A spokesperson for iHeartMedia also shared that they have removed Wallen’s music from rotation on over 800 stations.

“In light of Morgan Wallen’s recent actions involving the use of a racial slur, we have made the decision to remove his music and content from our stations effective immediately,” iHeartMedia said in a statement to Billboard.

iHeartRadio’s Bobby Bones also spoke on the incident sharing that they have not even played his music this morning.

“We have not played his music this morning, I sent Scub an email and was like ‘hey, let’s not played anything Morgan today, let me collect my thoughts'” Bobby Bones shared. “My thoughts are this, I was watching it and I go I don’t even think this word, this word doesn’t even come into my head and when someone uses it, it is just so just disgusting to my insides that I don’t quite understand. So, I thought why is he even using that word. That’s also not a word that comes out for the first time ever in a situation like that, it isn’t.” Bones continued, “there is no room for that word, there is no room for a limited view on any race or sex. I like Morgan Wallen as a person this I don’t like one bit I’m also not a big canceled culture guy but I do think it’s I’m going to go away for a while guy.”

Wallen’s Apple Music Country radio show also seems to have been removed from the Apple platform.

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 and has been sitting atop the charts at No. 1 for three consecutive weeks. 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.
