Reporter: Two of the young men seen leading this racist chant have now been expelled from the university of Oklahoma. The school's president sent this letter saying their actions create a "Hostile educational environment for others."

Hours later, this video of her posted two years earlier. . Reporter: She's repeatedly using the n-world singing along to a rap song.
