Morgan Wallen apologizes for using N-word, gets dropped by radio stations

"In the wake of recent events, Big Loud Records has made the decision to suspend Morgan Wallen's recording contract indefinitely", the company tweeted. iHeartMedia and Cumulus Media also chose to remove the singer's music from their stations.

The directive was signed by Brian Philips, EVP of programming for the chain, and John Dimick, the company's head of programming operations.

Shortly after the leaked video, Wallen issued an apology for the "unacceptable" remark.

USA Today reported, "A video shows Morgan, 27, being dropped off at a house and telling a friend to 'take care of this".

Those moves are particularly significant because, unusually for a country album, unsafe has been a smash on streaming services. But several did move to make him virtually invisible on their platforms without a search. According to Variety, DSPs removed the country star's photos and tracklistings from the home page of Apple Music Country.

Hi success has come despite a number of mistakes and stumbles that he has also apologized for. He's had the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the charts since Garth Brooks" heyday in the "90s. "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 obtained by the Associated Press.

Morgan Wallen is facing some major consequences after a video surfaced of him using the N-word.

The Indian High Commission in Colombo has called on "all sides" to "abide by the existing understandings and commitment". The deep-sea jetty deal was signed in May 2019, a few months before President Gotabaya Rajapaksa came to power.

Morgan Wallen has taken another hit amid the fallout from a leaked video showing him using a racial slur, and will no longer be eligible for one of country music's biggest awards. The music television channel CMT said it was removing his appearances from all its platforms. The Dangerous record broke Spotify's all-time first day stream record for a Country album that placed the artist #1 globally and in the US Spotify Debut Charts. But he's apologized repeatedly for mistakes and stumbles, like the time he was removed from a "Saturday Night Live" performance for violating COVID-19 protocols. He ended up appearing in a December episode of the show in which he joined a skit poking fun at his behavior.

Earlier this week, TMZ posted a video of Wallen saying the n-word. The singer has been silent on social media since Monday.

Rising country star Morgan Wallen has been suspended by his record label, Big Loud.

He's one of the genre's biggest young stars.

"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, ' Morris tweeted. "We keep them rich and protected at all costs with no recourse".

Still, others were insisting this was a blip, not emblematic. The singer Kelsea Ballerini wrote: "The news out of Nashville tonight does not represent country music". "The hate runs deep". At the time, he said he was going to step away from the spotlight to reflect.
