Morgan Wallen’s record label has suspended his contract indefinitely after the singer/songwriter was caught on camera using the n-word outside of his Nashville-area home.
The Nashville-based label issue a statement on Wednesday morning, also revealing that Wallen’s distribution partner, Republic Records, supports their decision.
“In the wake of recent events, Big Loud Records has made the decision to suspend Morgan Wallen’s recording contract indefinitely,” the statement reads. “Republic Records fully supports Big Loud’s decision and agrees such behavior will not be tolerated.”
The news comes after Wallen was seen on video shouting profanities and using a racial slur outside of his home.
In the clip, captured by a neighbor’s doorbell camera and first shared by TMZ, Wallen can be heard saying, “take care of” this “p**** a** mother******” and “take care of this p**** a** n*****.”
“I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back,” Wallen shared in a statement to TMZ. “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.”
