Morgan Wallen has called out Joe Biden supporters for failing to stick to social distancing during post-election celebrations over the weekend. Taking to Instagram stories on Sunday, the country music star pointed out that it was unfair for thousands to gather in the streets across the U.S. while musicians were prohibited from performing in front of live audiences.
"The hypocrisy is unreal," he captioned a video of a large crowd gathered outside the White House, according to The Tennessean. "Time to start booking shows...If you don't agree with me, fine. We can still be friends. But I have a family, band, and crew that need to be provided for and taken care of. If it's OK for us to party in the streets with no 'social distancing' then we can book shows right now."
Other prominent musicians echoed Wallen's sentiment on social media.
"...glad to see thousands gathering again," Chase Rice wrote on Twitter. "Cool, glad that’s happening, concerts can resume."
Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line also aired his views on the matter. Sharing the same footage of the crowd gathered outside the White House, Kelley said he "knew we were waiting on the election since March when this [expletive] show started."
"Time to go back to work AMERICA. Booking shows ASAP," he added.
The backlash comes weeks after Wallen was pulled from the lineup of "Saturday Night Live" for going maskless at a crowded party ahead of his appearance on the show. In video shared last month to TikTok, the music icon is shown downing shots in a bar where dozens of other patrons were not wearing masks or obeying social distancing. Wallen, who recently became a father, was also caught kissing a woman believed not to be the mother of his baby.
