Morgan Wallen has taken to the streets of social media to issue an apology for a video that surfaced of him using the “N-word.”

The country singer posted a 5-minute video on his Instagram page and said:

The video you saw was me on hour 72 of a 72-hour bender, and that’s not someone I’m proud of.

He went on to say:

I let so many people down… I let my parents down, and they’re the furthest thing from the person in that video. I let my son down, and I’m not okay with that. This week I’ve been waiting to say anything further until I got the chance to apologize to those closest to me that I knew I personally hurt. I also accepted some invitations from some amazing Black organizations and executives and leaders to engage in some very real and honest conversations. I’ll admit to y’all I was pretty nervous to accept those invitations from the very people I hurt and they had every right to step on my neck while I was down, to not show me any grace. But they did the exact opposite; they offered me grace.

Watch the video below if you care to.

At this point, just keep the apology and do better.

You said what you said and you meant it. You’re only sorry the video was released.
