Waka Flocka Flame Cancels University of Oklahoma Gig Over Racist Fraternity Song
"Racism is something I will not tolerate" the rapper said on Instagram
Waka Flocka Flame has canceled an upcoming performance at the University of Oklahoma in light of a video that allegedly shows several members of the school’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity singing a racist song. In the video, which surfaced over the weekend, a group of students use racial slurs — pledging never to let a black person into the fraternity — and invoke lynching. The backlash has been swift, as both the school and the national chapter have shut down the fraternity on campus.
Waka released a statement on Instagram saying he knows “the whole school and SAE don’t agree with those kids actions,” but that he would not be performing at on campus next month as he was originally supposed to. “All races partying have a good time and enjoying themselves together peacefully. That’s what Waka Flocka is all about,” he said. “Racism is something I will not tolerate,” he concluded.
