He’s somebody’s problem.

Country music star Morgan Wallen, 31, was mocked by his peers at the 2024 Academy of Country Music Awards on Thursday. 

“Schitt’s Creek” star Noah Reid and Ashley McBryde went onstage together to present the award for Single of the Year. Nominees included Wallen, Parker McCollum, Jelly Roll, Jordan Davis and Luke Combs.

“Last night after some alcohol, [the] chair right over there really started to piss me off,” Reid sang to the tune “Last Night,” which is Wallen’s nominated song. 

“They told me that I threw it at somebody that I never met, and my publicist keeps telling me this ain’t over yet.”

McBryde then chimed in and sang, “Yeah. You should smile in the mugshot,” referencing Wallen’s mug shot, where he wore a big smile

On April 7, Wallen was taken into custody after he threw a chair from the sixth floor of Chief’s Bar in downtown Nashville just after 10:45 p.m. Sunday, according to local media.

Wallen was arrested and charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and one count of disorderly conduct.

“At 10:53 pm Sunday evening Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct,” his attorney Worrick Robinson told The Post in a statement. “He is cooperating fully with authorities.”

According to onlookers, Wallen laughed about the incident.

This wasn’t the singer’s first time stirring controversy. 

He faced backlash in February 2021 after he was caught using the N-word in a video recorded by his Nashville neighbors and obtained by TMZ. This led to his album “Dangerous” getting disqualified by several award shows. 

He apologized in a public statement shortly thereafter, saying he was “embarrassed” over his actions.

He also got arrested in May 2020 on intoxication and disorderly conduct charges after being kicked out of Kid Rock’s Honky Tonk bar in downtown Nashville.

Following that arrest, he took to X after his release to apologize for his behavior.

“Hey y’all just wanted to clear the air. I went out downtown last night with a few old friends. After a couple bar stops, we were horse-playing with each other,” he wrote at the time. “We didn’t mean any harm, and we want to say sorry to any bar staff or anyone that was affected.”

“Thank you to the local authorities for being so professional and doing their job with class,” he added in another tweet. “Love y’all.”

“He seems to love getting in trouble on Broadway,” Jason Steen — who runs ScoopNashville.com, a site chronicling Music City arrests, including Wallen’s — told The Post in April. “That has just been his thing.

“He’s like a college guy. It’s nothing to see Wallen leaving the bars with folks and ending up at the Waffle House at 3 a.m.”

Wallen was dating social media influencer KT Smith, 29, in 2016, with whom he has a son. But, the two split in 2020, and Smith recently got remarried. 

After Wallen’s latest arrest for the April chair-throwing incident, a source told the Daily Mail it might have been inspired by the news that Smith recently got married to someone else.

 “KT’s marriage … just crushed him,” a source told the outlet. “Whatever happened in the bar had to be reality hitting him in the face over losing the love of his life.”

But, Smith denied this when she reacted to her ex’s arrest. 

“Although it may seem like it correlates because of the timeline, I have no evidence to believe the incident had anything to do with the recent marriage announcement,” Smith, 29, told the Daily Beast.

On April 19, Wallen broke his silence about the chair-throwing incident. 

“I didn’t feel right publicly checking in until I made amends with some folks,” Wallen wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

“I’ve touched base with Nashville law enforcement, my family, and the good people at Chief’s. I’m not proud of my behavior, and I accept responsibility. I have the utmost respect for the officers working every day to keep us all safe. Regarding my tour, there will be no change.”

Following his April arrest, Wallen joked about it at a concert, telling the crowd onstage, “I’m still a little rowdy.”

Wallen did not take home any awards from the 2024 AMAs.
