TMZ broke the story sharing video of Wallen coming home from a "rowdy night out" where he is heard using a racial slur and other profanities. Wallen has since issued an apology in a statement to TMZ, "I'm embarrassed and sorry. 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."
Since the story broke, fans of country music have been asking Bobby Bones to comment on the situation. He was reluctant until he had some time to think about the incident and how he wanted to respond in the best way. During The Bobby Bones Show today (February 3), Bones shared his thoughts on the matter. He spent 10 minutes discussing the situation after a listener called in asking for what he planned to do in regards to Wallen's music being played on his radio show.
