Morgan Wallen is not happy that he can’t play concerts while there are large Joe Biden rallies.
What Morgan Wallen Had to Say
The country singer posted a series of Instagram stories on November 8 concerning concerts and the hypocrisy of political gatherings. Wallen first shared an image from a celebration after Biden won the 2020 presidential election. A group of over a hundred people are in close contact without face masks, something that the CDC warns against. “Time to start booking shows,” he captioned the image.
He followed up the image with two messages. “The hypocrisy is unreal,” he first wrote. “If you don’t agree with me, fine,” he continued. “We can still be friends. But I have a family, band, and crew that need to be provided for and taken care of. If it’s okay for us to party in the streets with no ‘social distancing’ then we can book shows right now.”

Wallen came under fire after he was photographed and videotaped partying without a face mask or social distancing. Because he did not follow COVID-19 health and safety regulations, his performance on “Saturday Night Live” was canceled.
The 27-year-old shared in a recent interview with Bobby Bones that he understood both opinions on his partying behavior. “I know that I’ve got young kids that look up to me, I do want to be mindful of things,” he said. “I’m not going to let people control the way I live my life but I also want to be mindful. Having a son now, I don’t know if I’d be proud to show him those videos. I’ve got to think about some things differently.” Wallen shared that fame hit him when he was in Alabama about six weeks ago, seemingly referencing the controversy.
