A Morgan Wallen fan sued the country singer Monday for canceling a concert minutes before showtime.

“Completely disappointed in @MorganWallen! You’ve been sitting in this stadium for 3 hours and just announced that the show is cancelled! COMPLETE BULLS–T!!!” a fan tweeted.
“You don’t cancel a show 5 minutes before show time. Period. If he was sick or had no voice, he knew it long before. Regrettable,” another wrote.
“I’m not even that mad about not seeing Morgan Wallen because I’ve seen him before. What frustrates me the most is the fact that they knew this before the concert and let over 80k people buy liquor and merch before canceling so everyone got their money’s worth,” a third concertgoer tweeted, misrepresenting the Ole Miss football stadium. number of places.
Wallen later wrote on his Instagram Stories that he was “very sorry” and had “tried everything [he] could” feel better in time for the performance.
