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.

    I went to a big time SEC football factory as an undergraduate. This SAE video was probably the least shocking thing I have seen this year. I know Oklahoma is not an SEC school, but I am sure that many of the students have attitudes as backwards as anyone white from the Deep South.
