Rapper Waka Flocka Flame has canceled his upcoming performance for the University of Oklahoma’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity in the wake of the now-closed chapter’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 soe EDM and it was all white people at my shows for awhile. 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”
If you missed it, a video has surfaced of University of Oklahoma 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.”
Kudos to Waka for standing up to racism & bigotry.
