 CHICKASHA -  Former Chickasha, Okla. Police Chief Eddie Adamson is apologizing publicly for sharing a Facebook post that contained a racial slur.

According to the Chickasha Express Star,  Adamson is accused of posting on his personal Facebook profile an item that contained the caption "How a real n***a order Starbucks".

The post  was accompanied by a video clip of the film 'Role Models' where actor Paul Rudd attempts to order a beverage.

Officers called for Adamson's resignation shortly after that  Facebook post, and he submitted his letter of resignation.

Adamson has since emailed the video apology, which is 15 minutes long, to the Chickasha Express Star on Friday.

In the video, Adamson apologizes and states that he realizes the post was inappropriate.

Adamson says he has met with leaders from the NAACP and apologized to them.

The former chief said he wants to apologize to everyone in a public forum.

However, he says he won't be able to make the next Chickasha city council meeting, so he wanted to apologize now via video.

Adamson also talked about how he has implemented policies to prevent discrimination in the video.

NewsChannel 4 spoke with Chickasha residents who say they have seen too much turnover in the police force and feel like they are poorly represented.

They say they hope this incident serves as a lesson to law enforcement.

After this incident, residents say they are unsure about the future of the department.
