NORMAN, Okla. – A video that is making its way around the internet appears to show a fraternity at a local university singing a racist chant.

In the video, you can hear the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity cheering “there will never be a nig*** in SAE.”

The chant goes on to say, “you can hang them from a tree, but they’ll never sign with me.”

According to Unheard, the students chanting in the video are from the University of Oklahoma.

However, university officials have not confirmed these are OU students.

It was allegedly filmed Saturday on the way to a date party for the fraternity’s founder’s day.

OU President David Boren released a statement via Twitter saying, “if the video is indeed of OU students, this behavior will not be tolerated and is contrary to all of our values”

SAE says they are aware of the video and are investigating the details.

The SAE national president stated on Twitter that the OU chapter  “has immediately been placed on a cease & desist.”
