Morgan Wallen Accused of Not Donating Promised Money to Educate about Racism

Morgan Wallen recently promised $500,000 in donations to various black-led groups after the scandal that rocked his career earlier this year when he was videotaped repeatedly using a racial slur during a drunken late night with friends.  Wallen did an interview with Good Morning America host, Michael Strahan, and said he would donate money from his album sales – which spiked, following the incident.

Two months later, however, and only one organization claims to have received a small portion of that amount, according to Rolling Stone.

Only the Black Music Action Coalition received some money — $165,000, to be exact —  in April, the publication reports.  BMAC also confirmed it met alone with Morgan and then with just his management reps multiple times in February and March. A source with BMAC is quoted as saying, “We remain disappointed that Morgan has not used his platform to support any anti-racism endeavors.”

Rolling Stone also claims that despite agreeing to a meeting with the NAACP, Wallen has yet to do that.

The “Chasin’ You” singer has been busy with his “More Than My Hometown Foundation,” which he launched in July.

At press time, Morgan had not issued a comment on the story.
