Black country music singer Mickey Guyton tweeted: "This is not his first time using that 'unacceptable" racial slur and we all known that. "There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever". Late Tuesday night, the company sent out a directive to the program directors of all of its 400-plus stations with the header "MORGAN WALLEN - EXTREMELY IMPORTANT".

The country singer Morgan Wallen was filmed hurling a racial slur on the streets of Nashville, Tennessee, prompting one of the biggest radio chains in the USA to drop him from its playlists.

Morgan Wallen's music is being pulled off radio after he was caught on camera hurling a racial slur around during a night out in Nashville.

Variety reports that in response to the video, country radio stations have begun removing Wallen from playlists.

BEASLEY MEDIA GROUP Chief Content Officer JUSTIN CHASE commented to ALL ACCESS, "We were deeply saddened and disappointed to hear of the recent comment made by MORGAN WALLEN".

Wallen is - or was - the fastest rising star in country music but has also made headlines for the wrong reasons.

'We all know it wasn't his first time using that word.

Mr Wallen is one of the genre's biggest young stars, with his new record, Dangerous: The Double Album, spending three weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 chart.

This is not the first time Wallen has landed himself in trouble. His invitation to perform on the sketch comedy show was revoked once a TikTok video surfaced that showed Wallen partying with fans without facial coverings at a bar in Alabama, breaking social distancing measures, per NPR.

NPR has reached out to Wallen's press representatives for a statement. He ended up appearing in a December episode of the show in which he joined a skit poking fun at his behavior.
