Morgan Wallen’s 2022 Billboard Music Awards Showcase Called ‘Racist’

Twitter isn’t happy with country singer Morgan Wallen’s performance at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards.

The previously ‘canceled’ 29-year-old performed not one, but two songs on Sunday night a year after a February 2021 video surfaced of him drunkenly calling his friend the N-word and other expletives are gone viral.

“F— Morgan Wallen and that Jim Crow music,” a user wrote. “With what just happened in Buffalo, we could have taken him out of the lineup. Not canceled my ass. That’s the problem now, we always give MFs a second chance to play in our faces.

Whalen, who performed “Don’t Think Jesus” before switching to a performance of “Wasted on You,” did not address the controversy that previously banned him from the ceremony.

“Does @billboard really support and promote this racist asshole,” said another.

“Diddy is giving an award for his anti-racism activism while simultaneously giving Morgan Wallen a platform,” another noted.

BBMA host and executive producer Sean “Diddy” Combs previously told Billboard that he would use the show to spread “love and forgiveness” around Wallen and rapper Travis Scott.

“So one of the things that I’m doing directly is canceling the cancellation. This is breaking news because people didn’t want to cancel. But the cancellation is a trend that needs to go away. stop,” the 52-year-old president of Revolt Media & TV said of the popular Gen Z trend.

“Travis went through a tragedy; Morgan [used the N-word] while talking to her boy,” the self-proclaimed “Primetime Puff” reminded readers. “People make mistakes. Now we move forward with love and respect for everyone who has been hurt or affected. It’s time to forgive.
