(La Porte, IN) - The Morgan Wallen concert at this year's La Porte County Fair has been cancelled.
The decision was in response to a video capturing Wallen using a racial slur.
The announcement cancelling the show was made today by the fair in a post on Facebook. "In recent days, the Fair Board has spent significant time reviewing its options with respect to the Morgan Wallen concert scheduled for July 14th. This has included conversations with numerous officials within the community, including the LaPorte County Commissioners, County Sheriff, County Council President, as well as their respective attorneys. After much consideration, the decision has been made to cancel this concert. For those that purchased tickets, full refunds will be issued and are expected to be processed within ten (10) business days. We appreciate everyone's patience as we address this and, as always, appreciate your support of the LaPorte County Fair."
Attempts to reach a representative from the fair were not immediately successful.
