Following the release of a video obtained by TMZ of Morgan Wallen saying the N-word outside his Nashville home, Big Loud Records has suspended Wallen’s recording contract indefinitely.
The label announced Wallen’s suspension in a Tweet, saying Republic Records supports their decision and that “such behavior will not be tolerated.”

The video was reportedly shot Sunday (Jan. 31) night by neighbors and shows him yelling profanities, including the N-word. Following the release of the video, iHeart Media, Cumulus, Spotify, Apple, CMT and other organizations have made efforts to remove Wallen’s music from their platforms.
