NORMAN, Okla. – The controversy surrounding an Oklahoma fraternity continues after a second video began to spread.
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.”
On Tuesday, a new video started to spread on social media, claiming to show the SAE ‘house mom.’
Brandon Weghorst, the associate executive director of communications for SAE, confirmed that Beauton Gilbow was an employee of the local house corporation, not the national organization.
“As with the national headquarters, the local alumni do not endorse the kind of behavior that we have seen in these videos,” Weghorst told NBC News. “We saw the video for the first time last night and share the same sentiment as the chapter video. This is racist, deplorable behavior, and we cannot allow this type of hateful mentality to be present in any of our chapters or members and certainly not with adult peers with whom they interact.”
Weghorst says the fraternity’s national headquarters doesn’t know the circumstances surrounding the latest video.
It appears Gilbow is singing along to the song “All Gold Everything” by Trinidad James.
After the video of Gilbow started circulating, she released a statement to KFOR about the context of the video.
“I have been made aware of a video of me that is circulating on social media and in the news. I am heartbroken by the portrayal that I am in some way racist. I have friends of all race and do not tolerate any form of discrimination in my life. I was singing along to a Trinidad song, but completely understand how the video must appear in the context of the events that occurred this week.”
The University of Oklahoma’s National Panhellenic Council has also condemned the video, saying they are cooperating with school administrators in their investigation.
The university’s legal staff is working to determine if any students will be expelled.
OU has a student code that prevents discrimination based on the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
