NORMAN, Okla. (PIX11) — A new Vine video appears to show a University of Oklahoma Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity “house mother” using a racial slur.
The second video surfaced just days after a YouTube video was posted Sunday where students are heard chanting “There will never be a ni**** in SAE. You can hang him from a tree, but he can never sign with me.”
Sigma Alpha Epsilon shut down the local chapter Sunday night, suspended all of the chapter’s members and threatened to remove those responsible from the fraternity for life. On Tuesday, two students were expelled Tuesday after being identified as playing “a leadership role” in the video.
A second video surfaced Tuesday claiming to show the “house mom” and shows a woman singing along to the song “All Gold Everything” by Trinidad James. Part of the song’s lyrics repeat the n-word over and over.
The woman was identified as Beauton Gilbow. Brandon Weghorst, the associate executive director of communications for SAE, confirmed that Gilbow was an employee of the local house corporation.
After the video circulated, Gilbow sent a statement to KFOR:
“I have been made aware of a video of me that is circulating on social media and in the news. I am heartbroken by the portrayal that I am in some way racist. I have friends of all race and do not tolerate any form of discrimination in my life. I was singing along to a Trinidad song, but completely understand how the video must appear in the context of the events that occurred this week.”
