NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – JUNE 3: Morgan Wallen performs at The Cowan at Topgolf on June 3, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Morgan Wallen sat down with Good Morning America Michael Strahan to discuss his use of the ‘N-word’ in a February video.
“I was around a few of my friends, and we just… we said silly things together,” says Wallen. “In our minds, it’s playful. That may sound ignorant, but it… that’s really where it came from, and it was wrong. “
Strahan asked Wallen if he really understood why the smurf was so hurtful. “I don’t know how to put myself in their shoes because I don’t [in their shoes]. But I understand, especially when I say I’m using it naughty or whatever, ignorantly, I understand that it must have sounded, you know, like: ‘He’s not understand.’
