Lambda Theta Delta, a fraternity, at UC Irvine, has created and posted a video of 4 frat brothers dancing to Justin Timberlake’s song “Suit And Tie” with one member in blackface.
Here’s what Thomas Parham, UC Irvine’s vice chancellor for student affairs has to say about the video;
“We are dismayed to see what I think is insensitive in a video parody that was made by these individuals,”
The Lambda Theta Delta Chapter released the following statement;
“The use of black face in the video is incredibly offensive as well as insensitive. This behavior is simply unacceptable and the individuals responsible for the video have already been reprimanded within the organization prior to the public outcry to which this formal apology is responding. We want to ensure everyone that this video does not represent the views of the collective house. With that being said it does acknowledge the fact that we have some ignorant individuals within our organization, whom we have already dealt with ourselves.”
