Nashville NAACP Reacts To Morgan Wallen’s GMA Interview: “A Travesty”

Morgan Wallen may have completed his first interview since the racial slur incident this past February, but that doesn’t mean it’s resonating.

In fact, the Nashville chapter of the NAACP isn’t liking it at all.

Nashville NAACP President Sheryl Guinn tells TMZ:

“She believes Morgan’s sit-down with Michael Strahan is the result of Morgan being sorry not for what he said but for getting caught using the racial slur.

She says it’s a travesty Morgan never thought about the meaning behind the hateful word.

Sheryl says his white privilege was on full display for never caring to learn the hurt that word causes. And, she’s is dismayed by Morgan trying to contextualize the word … saying he used it in a ‘playful’ way.”

And despite her displeasure with Morgan’s words, she still thinks he can turn it around.

She says Morgan can make amends by addressing serious issues, like inequality and voter suppression.
