Bethany Frankel, Dixie Chicks, Morgan Wall discussed on Jason and Alexis
It just is very It's not a great edit know, so I don't want to offend anybody. Here s O. What's happened is that he has been suspended from his record label. And he's been dropped from a least as of yesterday. It was like 400 radio stations had had axed his his music. Um, this is not good for him at all. And it's just really disappointing that people are using this word. Even if they're drunk in its ingest like I know, I don't know about you guys, but my family just didn't say that word. And it was the worst word that you could ever say So it isn't in my brain. To say I wasn't raised by people who said that, and they definitely taught me that it wasn't something that anyone should say so it's not in my drunk in my lexicon. Even come out if I'm blackout drunk, you know what I mean? Yeah, I had a friend of mine who was a sky diver girl with me and she we went to a baseball game. All of us together my sky diving friends and she got really drunk and she was yelling it Out at like the players and we were like, Oh, my God. Like we had no idea that she would ever use this word. We were shocked. She was a fun, you know, rough and tumble girl, but we're like Whoa! Get thee to the car like we were mortified and it was like, Oh, it's just like this is not acceptable. Yeah. And There are some country artists that are green with the decision of these radio stations, and he's apologized. Yes, he has said. Kind of a version of this isn't who I am. One of her. Someone says that I always think to myself and look at it and You know, in one side of my brain I I want, you know you want to give people second chances, but from the way, he said this, I think it would be ridiculous for a two for us to assume. This was the first time he's ever said this word. I you know what I mean? I don't think this I don't think this was the first time that this is other ever come out of his mouth. And you know, this is recorded by his neighbors. So you know he was already you know that he pissed off the neighbors enough that they felt the need to start recording this Um, that when I was reading this in rolling stone, That was a fascinating aspect of this, too, That the party was so out of control and it has happened before. Um so that must be And I know right now, this is not interesting is not the right word. But this is Well, it's interesting the stories happening right now because there's a lot of discussion about cancel culture and you know, I I I don't always don't like I don't always like cancel culture. However, I do also think there are consequences. When when you say stuff they are. I mean, there are consequences, and sometimes you can't take stuff back. Um and I know the narrative right now. Is it on Lee happens to More liberal voices. But think about that. I always think about the Dixie Chicks. Look at them. I mean, look, Look what happened to them. Um, you know, I don't know. That's true, he says. He said, I'm embarrassing. Sorry. I used an unacceptable on inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back. There's no excuses to use this type of language ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word I promise to do better. Yeah. I don't think we used. I don't think many times, haven't we? Yeah. I don't think you can use the drunk. Excuse In the use of that word. I don't think there's any time where that word is appropriate. I also think it's a combination of his behavior. That that alone could just say, Hey, that's not what are you doing? It was just a cry for help. Or is this real hatred? That's inside of you. Also There shouldn't be our heroes. None of these people should write, you know, like I really wish we could just stick to the music. But it's really hard to do when that's the image that you have, like. Why what are you doing? Yeah. I love when you say that when we have when these stars tumble or they have these scandals Yeah, yeah. But it's the reality. A lot of kids. People look up to him. And it is a responsibility that you have to think about when you are out doing things in the public eye, like in the public eye, starting a party. This is your big chance. This is where you're you could Take your career? Yes. And if it's like, Don't screw it up for yourself. What are you doing? Just broke a huge streaming record. I mean, dude was flying high. That is the scary thing. Now I will say, And I'm not. I'm not arguing for the Morgan wall in case But that is the frightening thing about Cancel culture. To me is the fact that in a millisecond You know, when I think about that, the I know we're running late. But this is I want to wrap this up and be our if it'll be fine. Um, I Bethany Frankel on anti Colin. We're talking about this in that podcast interview a reference yesterday. Bethany asked Andy if he worries about Does he worry about things that he says on his show? You know, Ad lib moment, S'more now in 2021 that he did originally is like absolutely he goes. I worry. I worry all the time because in a millisecond You. Your career could be over. If you say something dumb Now this now let me be very clear. This is beyond dumb. I do believe that there is no excuse to ever use that word. But I? It is frightening that like that it can all be taken away. So 6 44 everybody. We're gonna take a break. We'll be back after these words. It's no secret we might talkers love local businesses there the places that sponsor us the.
