Members of the University of Oklahoma chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon were forced to move out of their house Monday after a video of some of the members chanting racial slurs was leaked last week. 

The video, which started circulating late Sunday evening, shows men on a charter bus singing a chant, including “There will never be a n***** in SAE” and “You can hang them from a tree, but they’ll never sign with me,” the OU Daily reported.

Since then, the university disbanded and the national headquarters have closed the chapter, the house was vandalized, the fraternity’s letters were removed from the house, all the members were asked to move out immediately and rapper Waka Flocka Flame canceled his performance at the fraternity. 

The chant has even garnered national attention, with White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest addressing the video for about a minute in his Monday morning briefing. 

University President David Boren said he has no sympathy for those involved at a press conference at the university on Monday. 

“We don’t provide student services for bigots,” Boren said, according to the OU Daily.
