Morgan Wallen has been removed from hundreds of radio stations after a video emerged of him using a racial slur. The video shows the country music star saying goodbye to some friends and calling one of them the N-word. Cumulus Media, the second-biggest radio chain in the U.S., removed his content from their stations' playlists following the news. The radio chain operates 400 radio stations in the country and more are expected to follow their lead. Effective immediately we request that all of Morgan Wallen's music be removed from our playlists without exception, Directive Sent To All Cumulus Media Radio Stations. Wallen’s latest record Dangerous: The Double Album has been at number one on the Billboard chart for three weeks. It’s the first country record to do so since Taylor Swift's Red in 2012. Wallen has since issued an apology for his use of the racial slur.
