Controversial Country Singer Morgan Wallen Put on Vocal Rest for Six Weeks, Cancels Concerts After Injuring Himself (See Video)


Is the universe punishing Morgan Wallen?

The controversial country singer says he has to cancel six weeks of concerts and go on vocal rest. He’s damaged his vocal chords badly and now he has to zip his lip.

Wallen got caught on a video saying the “N” word a couple of years ago. He was briefly punished by his manager, agent, and record company. But he’s so successful that eventually they gave in. A little racism? Who cares if the money is flowing in?

Now Wallen’s voice is hurt. He has to be quiet. I don’t expect him to read anything. Maybe he can watch “12 Years a Slave,” the original “Roots,” and some good documentaries that could educate him. He’s got nothing else to do.
