Country singer Morgan Wallen faces another controversy as his record label denies allegations that he was “too drunk” to perform at his recently canceled concert in Oxford, Mississippi. Despite a TikTok video showing a security guard claiming Wallen was intoxicated and had to be taken out of the venue, both the security company and Wallen’s label have strongly refuted these claims.
Morgan Wallen’s Record Label Denies Claims That He Was “Too Drunk”
The unexpected turn of events unfolded when Morgan Wallen’s highly anticipated concert in Oxford, Mississippi, was abruptly canceled. This left thousands of disappointed country music fans in disbelief. Moments before the show, Wallen’s fans were informed that the singer “lost his voice” and would be unable to perform.
The sudden cancellation led to an outpouring of frustration on social media platforms. A fan took to Twitter, to share their complete disappointment in Wallen, while another criticized the last-minute cancellation. Emphasizing that such a decision should have been made earlier if the singer truly couldn’t perform.
In response to the claims made in a widely shared TikTok video, both the security company and Wallen’s label have come forward to dispute the claims of the singer’s alleged intoxication. The security company, BEST Crowd Management, took to their Instagram Story. This is to clarify that one of their employees had made false claims regarding Wallen’s condition. Stating that they do not support the employee’s false statement.
The Canceled Show Add More Controversy to Wallen’s Career
The canceled show adds to the ongoing controversies that have plagued Wallen’s career in recent times. Prior to this incident, the singer once faced backlash for his use of racial slurs. Additionally, he was also involved in partying without masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While Wallen has since rescheduled certain stops on his One Night at a Time World Tour due to doctor-ordered vocal rest, the repercussions of the canceled show persist. One upset individual filed a lawsuit against Wallen. Seeking not only a refund for the ticket but also reimbursement for additional expenses incurred. These include transport, lodging, and merchandise sales.
Although the initial lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed, plans to refile it as a class-action suit on behalf of all affected individuals have been announced. As Wallen navigates the aftermath of the show, we’ll know exactly how these incidents will shape his trajectory as an artist. It also remains to be seen how these incidents will affect the relationship with his fan base moving forward.
