Morgan Wallen is giving his first interview since being caught on tape using a racial slur.

The Country music superstar appeared on Good Morning America with Michael Strahan Friday morning (July 23) and says using the N-word was “ignorant.”

“I understand that I’m not ever going to make everyone happy. I can only come tell my truth and that’s all I know to do,” Wallen said about those who think his apology isn’t  sincere or that him speaking out about it is just another “performance.”

Wallen says he and his friends “say dumb stuff together,” and said of that night in February that he and his friends were “clearly drunk” and he was asking his friend’s girlfriend to make sure he got home alright, saying he, “didn’t mean the term in a derogatory way.”

Strahan asked if Wallen thought there was a race problem in America, Wallen stated,  “I mean, it would seem that way, yeah. I haven’t really sat and thought about that.”

What do you think about Wallen’s first interview? Do you think he’s sincere or still has more to learn?
