MORGAN Wallen's sister claimed the singer should not be "cancelled" for using a racial slur as he didn't say it out of "hate."
Ashlyne Wallen took to Instagram to defend the controversial country star on Friday.
The singer's sister shared a text post that read: "There are 3 things you should ever do about a mistake: admit it, learn from it, and don’t repeat it."
She continued: “I know my brother. He is my best friend, and although what he said was completely unacceptable, I know in my heart that it did not come from a place of hate or malicious intent.
“Should he have said it? No. But should he be given the opportunity to correct his mistake and learn from it? Yes.”
Ashlyne wrote: "He is not the kind of person who would ever want to hurt anyone, but contrary to popular belief, he’s also human. And sometimes, humans make big mistakes.”
Later on in the note, Ashlyne condemned her brother’s use of the racially insensitive word as she said it “should not be in anyone’s vocabulary.”
She continued: “While derogatory language is unacceptable and ignorant in any situation, I do not believe the pure hate he has received is beneficial to the situation in anyway.
"I have seen firsthand how the repercussions of his actions have affected him, and whole it is important that he understands the gravity of what he said, the comments … are getting out of control.”
The post concluded: “If you don’t have anything kind to say, please say nothing at all. The only thing our world needs more of is love.”
Earlier this month, TMZ obtained the clip in which Morgan, 27, was recorded telling his friend to "take care of this p****-a** n*****" as he walked up his driveway following a night out.
"I’m embarrassed and sorry. I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back," the country singer said. "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.”
Morgan was suspended by his record label, Big Loud Records, after he was dropped from radio stations following the shocking video.
While Morgan received backlash from many fans, one of his supporters includes Teen Mom 2 alum Jenelle Evans' her husband David Eason.
David recently took to Facebook to issue his support, writing: "Bringing back the mullet in respect of Morgan Wallen."
While he earned the support of the former MTV star, Morgan's baby mama Katie Smith shared a cryptic post on Instagram following the leaked clip.
She seemed to support her ex as she shared a poem from Kaur's debut poetry collection, Milk And Honey, which reads: "it takes grace to remain kind in cruel situations."
The couple are no longer together, though they co-parent daughter Indie Wilder, who they welcomed on July 10, 2020.
