Transcript for University of Oklahoma Fraternity Shut Down After Racist Chant Goes Viral
Yeah, well, lots coming up. The fallout from the racist video at the Oscar. More traction against the frat may be coming and sorority sisters on that bus and others under investigation. Ryan Owens has the latest from Norman, Oklahoma. Good morning, Ryan. Reporter: Good morning, George. That is the now former frat house behind me and you see that u-haul truck, that's there because these young men must vacate by midnight by order of the president. Meanwhile, there are signs this scandal is only growing. The Greek letters have been stripped off the frat house this morning and the young men who once proudly wore them have been stripped of their pride. Are you embarrassed? Extremely. Can I say anything else? Reporter: They may not be the only ones. This morning the sorority tri delt says they're deeply disappointed and investigating their own members after this video of sigma alpha epsilon at the university of Oklahoma went viral and shows Sae members along with some young member chanting a racial slur. From a tree -- That's something that's been rehearsed and well known. Everybody on that bus was singing this chant proudly and confidently. Reporter: Some students tell ABC news the chant is part of this fraternity's national legacy. They boast 15,000 members and they deny that and immediately closed the uo chapter. It's not sanctioned, endorsed or otherwise a national song. This dark cloud is hanging over the organization and it's sad because this is absolutely not what Sae is about. Reporter: The university president says any students identified on the tape may be expelled. I think it's time for all of us all across America to step up and show zero tolerance when we're dealing with racist. Reporter: The outrage reverberating outside campus. This football recruit who committed to play there says not now. But closing down an entire house based on the actions of a few freshmen seems like an overreaction to some. Including the fraternity's african-american cook who finds himself out of a job. He's had it for 14 years. Outrageous. I think it's outrageous. Reporter: Also this morning, we have a new statement from the national chapter. They say they are now investigating other similar incidents on other campuses. Robin. All right, Ryan, thank you.
