Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s national headquarters shut down its University of Oklahoma chapter after a video emerged showing members of the chapter singing a racist n-word filled chant.
The video, which was exposed on Twitter, shows fraternity members on a bus chanting, “There will never be a n—-r at SAE.”
OU president David Boren said in a tweet that the university will not tolerate racism.
As of last night, the president of the fraternity said the chapter has been suspended indefinitely.
SAE’s national chapter released a statement about the incident:
“We apologize for the unacceptable and racist behavior of the individuals in the video, and we are disgusted that any member would act in such a way. Furthermore, we are embarrassed by this video and offer our empathy not only to anyone outside the organization who is offended but also to our brothers who come from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities,” Sigma Alpha Epsilon wrote in an online statement.
