Morgan Wallen has finally come out to confess he is guilty of using racial slur days after he was caught using the N-word on camera.
The country singer is seen on a video first posted by TMZ with a group outside of his Nashville home using a racial slur and profanities.
“Take care of this “p*ssy-a** m*ther**ker” -,” Wallen can be heard saying, before adding “take care of this p*ssy-a** n***er” ,” apparently in reference to one of the people with his group.
Several country music singers have since come out to defend Wallen. The likes of Jimmie Allen, Rakiyah Marshall, Kelleigh Bannen have all voiced their support for Wallen.
Wallen has since broken his silence, eight days after the TMZ leaked video surfaced showing him using the N-word outside his Nashville home.
In a video message to fans posted on his Instagram account on Wednesday, February 10th, the Country singer apologizes and gives an update what he’s been doing to change.
Wallen also asks those who have been defending him to quit doing so. The emotional plea on social media reveals that Wallen has been sober for nine days and sees his relationship with alcohol as toxic to the man he’s trying to be.
“I appreciate those who still see something in me and have defended me. But for today, please don’t. I was wrong. It’s on me to take ownership of this, and I fully accept any penalties I’ll face,” Wallen said.
Wallen he’s proud of who he is when he’s sober but recognizes that he let down his family, friends, and professional team as well as his fans on the night that racial slur video was taken. He specifically calls out his parents and infant son, Indie, as people he has disappointed.
