Waka Flocka out. One year after partying with members of University of Oklahoma's Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, rapper Waka Flocka Flame has canceled his upcoming event with the chapter after a racist video was leaked online this past weekend.
The offending clip, which incited controversy this weekend, featured alleged members of the frat singing on a bus and chanting the words: "You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me. There will never be a n—— in S-A-E."
Waka Flocka, 28, (nee Juaquin James Malphurs) took to his Instagram on Monday, Mar. 9, calling out the offensive chants spewed by SAE members, telling fans that he was axing that particular upcoming performance. "I know for a fact the whole school and SAE don't agree with those kids actions," he wrote to his 1 million plus followers on Instagram. "So know that I'm not mad at the whole #SAE just those disgusting kids. We can't change history but we damn sure can create our own future #DeathToRacism."
Accompanying his caption was a screen grab of his extended statement, which revealed that the rapper was "disgusted and disappointed" by the frat. "Racism is something I will not tolerate," he concluded in his message.
In a press release sent to Us Weekly on Monday, it was further shared that Wacka Flocka did not hesitate in his choice to axe his pending performance scheduled for the 25th of April. "Waka Flocka Flame made the announcement via his official Instagram channel this morning immediately after viewing the video," the statement read.
Brick Bronson, the president of Waka Flocka's management team, added that in no way was the decision made to punish students of the university.
"Let our decision weld a platform of conversation rather than raise the brows of anger among those who share our distaste and disgust from such a video," Bronson explained. "This was not a disciplinary action on the innocent students, nor among the guilty that share such wayward thoughts, but a collective reminder of the stain in which remains."
