On March 9, 2015 rapper Waka Flocka Flame canceled his upcoming performance next month at the University of Oklahoma, because of a video that was released showing the school’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity (SAE) singing a racist chant. SAE members are seen in the video chanting”There will never be a ni**in S-A-E!”

The Atlanta rapper was disgusted by the video and posted this statement on his Instagram page:

He captioned that post with the following:

“SMFH.. I know for a fact the whole school and SAE don’t agree with those kids actions so know that I’m not madd at the whole #SAE just those disgusting kids!!!!!! #WFF We can’t change history but we damn sure can create our own future #DeathToRacism”

According to Hip Hop DX, the University of Oklahoma released this statement in response to the SAE fraternity’s video:

“We apologize for the unacceptable and racist behavior of the individuals in the video, and we are disgusted that any member would act in such a way. 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.

This type of racist behavior will not be tolerated and is not consistent with the values and morals of our fraternity. We have more than 15,000 collegiate members across the nation, and this incident should not reflect on other brothers because this type of hateful action is not what Sigma Alpha Epsilon stands for. This is absolutely not who we are.”

Waka Flocka Flame Chooses ‘Ink, Not Mink’

American rapper and hip-hop artist Waka Flocka Flameshook up the charts and the airwaves with his debut album, Flockaveli. This crunkster quickly became a musical sensation and is known for sporting some rockin’ ink and serious jewelry. But underneath all that bling is a heart of gold—Waka Flocka Flame is a huge animal lover and is giving a shout-out to all the helpless fuzzy animals who are killed for their fur. The rapper has joined PETA’s iconic “Ink, Not Mink” campaign and is showing his skin to help animals save theirs.

Waka thinks that “[fur] is nasty!” and urges the hip-hop community to “understand what you buy.” Animals who are killed for their fur, such as foxes, minks, rabbits—even dogs and cats—are bludgeoned, stomped, electrocuted, and often skinned alive. Waka shares his disgust and exclaims, “Damn… electrocuting and killing animals!” Undercover investigations reveal the horror as the animals struggle and scream in pain as workers peel the skin from the writhing animals’ bodies.

Waka Flocka Flame shot two additional ads for PETA. Check out the explicit and tame versions now!

Animals endure tremendous pain and suffering before they are turned into coats, vests, hats, and other accessories. The only way to prevent such unimaginable cruelty is never to buy or wear any fur or fur trim and to encourage others to do the same. As Waka Flocka Flame prepares his sophomore album, Triple F Life: Friends, Fans, & Family, one F you’ll never see him in is fur.
