It appears the racist chant at the University of Oklahoma SAE chapter has inspired students on other campuses to come forward with their own tales involving the embattled fraternity.
University of Washington students accused fraternity members of hurling slurs last month during a protest to raise awareness about racism, according to CNN.
SAE, however, denies the charges, saying an investigation determined that its members were not involved in the incident, the news outlet notes.
“People were called monkeys and apes by members of SAE,” said Maggie Negussie, president of the university’s Black Student Union…
An investigation into the “grossly insensitive comments” is underway, said Denzil J. Suite, the university’s vice president for student life.
The university is gathering information to determine who was behind the remarks, but a preliminary report by some students accused the SAE fraternity, according to Suite.
The charges come as the University of Oklahoma is engulfed in controversy after a viral video showed SAE chapter members singing a racist chant last weekend during a fraternity event.
