NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE - JUNE 03: Morgan Wallen performs at The Cowan at Topgolf on June 03, 2019 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Morgan Wallen sat down with Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan to discuss his use of the ‘N-word’ in a video back in February.

“I was around some of my friends, and we just… we say dumb stuff together,” Wallen said. “In our minds, it’s playful. That sounds ignorant, but it… that’s really where it came from, and it’s wrong.”

Strahan asked Wallen if he actually understood why the slur is so hurtful. “I don’t know how to put myself in their shoes because I’m not [in their shoes]. But I do understand, especially when I say I’m using it playfully or whatever, ignorantly, I understand that that must sound, you know, like: ‘He doesn’t understand.’”
