Country star Morgan Wallen was scheduled to be Saturday Night Live’s musical guest this weekend (October 10), but he says he’s been uninvited from the show due to COVID-19 protocols, Variety reports.
The singer was widely criticized yesterday when video surfaced of him appearing to party with no mask and kiss people in a crowd.
“I respect the show’s decision because I know I put them in jeopardy, and I take ownership for this.
I’d like to apologize to SNL, to my fans, to my team for bringing me these opportunities, and I let them down.
And on a more personal note, I think I have some growing up to do.”.
Wallen added that Lorne Michaels assured him he’d be invited at a future date and noted that he was stepping away from the public eye for a while.
It’s currently unknown who will perform as musical guest on this weekend’s episode, which will be hosted by Bill Burr. »
