NORMAN, OK (CelebrityAccess) — Rapper Waka Flocka Flame canceled a show at the University of Oklahoma in the wake of a viral video showing members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) engaging in a racist chant.
In a post on his Instagram, Flame wrote:
"When I first started doing shows, it was all hood spots and black people. Then I had some mainstream success and did some EDM and it was all white people at my shows for a while. Now it's white, black and brown people at my shows. All races partying, having a good time and enjoying themselves together peacefully. That's what Waka Flocka is all about. For that reason, I must say I am disgusted and disappointed in the actions of the SAE fraternity at the University of Oklahoma and I will be canceling my scheduled performance for them next month. Racism is something that I will not tolerate."
The video which sparked the event appeared to show members of the fraternity chanting a song about the disinclusion of African Americans in the fraternity. The chant included references to lynching and repeated use of racial slurs. The fraternity's national headquarters investigated the video and disbanded the SAE chapter at the school. – Staff Writers
