Maren Morris, Mickey Guyton & Kelsea Ballerini Call Out Morgan Wallen Over Viral N-Word Video Controversy

Maren Morris, Mickey Guyton and Kelsea Ballerini are just three of the top country stars speaking out after Morgan Wallen was caught saying the N-word in a video.

The three female artists called out Morgan, who just recently won two awards at the CMA Awards and iHeartRadio Music Awards.

If you didn’t see, in the video that surfaced, Morgan is overheard using the N-word to describe one of his drunk friends after they arrive back at his Nashville house after a night out.

“The hate runs deep. Smfh,” Mickey, who is a notable Black country artist, tweeted after the video went viral. “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. How many passes will you continue to give? Asking for a friend. No one deserves to be canceled [but] this is unacceptable.”

Maren and Kelsea also called out Morgan‘s actions, and agreed with fans that if a female artist had done that, she would’ve been dropped and outcasted from the country community almost immediately.

Since the video went viral, Morgan has been dropped from his record label and iHeartRadio has pulled all of his music from their stations across the country.
