Country singer Morgan Wallen was dropped by his record label after he was caught on camera using the n-word — now the president of Nashville’s NAACP branch has invited him to sit down with them so they can educate him.
“Even when you look at the other words that were spoken, that one has a certain venom to it that the words just don’t have,” attorney and Nashville NAACP president Sheryl Guinn told WSMV-TV. “Because he was such a prominent celebrity and an artist here in Nashville, I mean he’s living here, we would love for him to have that conversation with us.”

She continued: “We invite him to come and have that conversation with us, the NAACP, as to why that word is so hurtful.”
The country music star did offer an apology for the shameful video:
“I’m embarrassed and sorry,” he said in a statement to PEOPLE. “I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back. “There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”
