As fallout continues in the University of Oklahoma race scandal, Waka Flocka Flame announces that he will be canceling his show at the the school next month.

In a lengthy message posted on Instagram, Waka explained that he is “disgusted” and “disappointed in the actions of the SAE fraternity.

“When I first started doing shows it was all hood spots and all black people. Then I had some 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 good 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.”

Video surfaced over the weekend of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chanting a racist song on a bus using the ‘N-word.’ “There will never be a n*gger in SAE,” the men offensively sung.

“We are disgusted that any member would act in such a way,” the fraternity’s national organization said in a statement. “Furthermore, we are embarrassed by this video and offer our empathy not only to anyone outside the organization who is offended but also to our brothers who come from a wide range of backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities.”

Since the video surfaced, the fraternity has been shut down, the Greek letters have been removed from the frat’s house and protests have erupted on campus. The University’s football team even canceled practice to protest. They were joined by coach Bob Stoops and the athletic director, Joe Castiglione.
