Waka Flocka Cancels SAE Performance Following Racist Frat Video: "I'm Disgusted"
The rapper shotgunned beers and partied with the fraternity last year.
Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has canceled his upcoming event with the University of Oklahoma's Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity in the wake of this weekend's racist video leak.
The rapper posted a statement on his Instagram in response to the leaked SAE video.
"When I first started doing shows it was all hood spots and all black people. Then I had mainstream success and did some EDM and it was all white people at my shows for a while. Now it’s white, black and brown people at my shows. All races partying having a goood time and enjoying themselves together peacefully. That’s what Waka Flocka is all about. For that reason I must say I’m disgusted and disappointed in the actions of the SAE fraternity at University of Oklahoma and I will be canceling my scheduled performance for them next month. Racism is something I will not tolerate. -WFF"
A video has surfaced of alleged SAE fraternity members on a bus, singing "You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me/There will never be a n---er in SAE.”
Waka reportedly performed for the SAE chapter less than a year ago. A video posted on YouTube shows him partying and shotgunning beers with the fraternity brothers in 2014.
