Morgan Wallen Pledged $500,000 Donation to Black-Led Groups, But Money Is Largely Missing (Report)

Morgan Wallen is apparently yet to make good on a promise.

Following his racial slur incident, Morgan claimed that he donated money to Black-led organizations in an interview on Good Morning America.

Now, Rolling Stone is reporting that the money never fully made its way to the organizations.

Over eight weeks later, BMAC, the only organization he mentioned by name in the interview, said they were “disappointed that Morgan has not used his platform to support any anti-racism endeavors,” and said the $500,000 number “seems exceptionally misleading.”

56 other state, regional and national Black-led or Black-founded charities reported no money from Morgan Wallen.

Rolling Stone later reached out to his reps, and received vague promises for more information “soon.”

Seth England, CEO of his record label Big Loud, claimed to the outlet that it, not Morgan Wallen, had donated the $500,000, including “$100,000 earmarked and promised for further donations by year end locally” as part of “Rock Against Racism.”

The CEO also claimed that Big Loud’s donations included “$300,000 to BMAC & Other Black Leader’s [sic] organizations of choice,” via the Entertainment Industry Foundation, a Los Angeles nonprofit co-founded by Humphrey Bogart.

BMAC still insists it received only $165,000, and reiterated that Morgan Wallen’s $500,000 pledge appears “misleading.”
