Over the weekend, Morgan Wallen went viral on Tik Tok for his after party antics following the Alabama football game. He was in a bar/club environment surrounded by fans with no masks and was making out on camera. He reached out to fans via Instagram to announce he had been scratched from Saturday Night Live as the featured performer because of COVID-19 protocol. 

He mentions he will be taking a break to evaluate himself for a while and gave no time table to when he'll get back. He apologized to his band mates and fans in the video multiple times in a very raw and rare show of emotion.

To Morgan, all I can say is that we all make mistakes and it takes tough times to turn us into what we shall one day become. Pressure makes diamonds and you'll pull through this; it's time to start being the star you're meant to be and the dad you know you can be. We'll be ready for your return!
