Country music star Morgan Wallen has been suspended by his music label Big Loud after he was caught on camera by a neighbor using the n-word.

"In the wake of recent events, Big Loud Records has made the decision to suspend Morgan Wallen's recording contract indefinitely," the label wrote in a statement on Twitter. "Republic Records fully supports Big Loud's decision and agrees such behavior will not be tolerated."

In the video, Wallen returned home from a night out with his friends in Nashville. His neighbor then decided to record Wallen and his crew because they were being extremely noisy in the middle of the night. Wallen, who appears to be intoxicated, can then be heard saying: 

"Take care of this "p*ssy-ass motherf*cker" to his friends before adding: "Take care of this p*ssy-ass n*gger."

iHeartMedia and Cumulus Media — the two biggest radio station groups in the U.S. — Country Music Television, Apple Music's flagship country playlist, Today's Country and Spotify's Hot Country Songs have all pulled Wallen's songs according to OK! Magazine.
