Waka Flocka has axed his upcoming show with the fraternity
The clip in question, which garnered huge controversy over the weekend, featured members of SAE on a bus chanting, "You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me. There will never be a n***** in S-A-E."
The 28-year-old rapper took to Instagram on Monday (March 9th) and called out the offending students for the racial chants while informing them he has cancelled his upcoming concert with the chapter.
"I know for a fact the whole school and SAE don't agree with those kids actions," he wrote 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."
Along with the caption, Waka Flocka also uploaded a snapshot of his official statement, which said that he was "disgusted and disappointed" by the SAE members involved. "Racism is something I will not tolerate," he concluded.
Brick Bronson, the president of Waka Flocka's management team, also sent a press release to Us Weekly - explaining that although the Atlanta-born rapper didn't hesitate to postpone the show, he isn't punishing the other students from 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."
