Morgan Wallen deserves the opportunity to prove he’s a changed man … at least according to Shawn Stockman, who says the country star’s probably not the only one guilty of casually using racial slurs.
That might come off as a very backhanded compliment, but the Boyz II Men singer was genuinely calling for the music biz to let up off Morgan … when we talked to him Thursday at LAX.
As we reported, the American Music Awards banned Morgan from attending their ceremony next month, even though he’s nominated in 2 categories. Shawn thinks the move is purely about optics, but adds … at some point they gotta “let the man live” and show he’s grown up and learned from his mistakes.
Speaking of mistakes … Shawn says the industry needs to stop pretending Morgan is the only country star who’s used the n-word the way he did earlier this year. Watch the clip … Shawn was laughing as he broached the delicate subject, but only half-joking.
The Country Music Association has also yanked Morgan from the guestlist for its award show next month, but Shawn’s calling for more forgiveness in the world.
