Video appears to show Beauton Gilbow, the University of Oklahoma Sigma Alpha Epsilon housemother who condemed members’ racist language, spouting the n-word. 

Just days after video emerged of members of the University of Oklahoma’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity singing a racist chant, new footage has popped up that appears to show the fraternity's housemother spouting the n-word repeatedly.

On Monday the Oklahoma Daily, the student newspaper, published the Vine video, which appears to show Beauton Gilbow spouting the racial slur as Trinidad James’ “All Gold Everything” plays in the background. Gilbow seems to bop along to the music and may have been attempting to rap with the artist but doesn’t appear to be on the beat.


According to the New York Daily News, the video has been viewed more than 200,000 times. The university is still reeling from the fallout after members of the fraternity were recorded on a party bus chanting, “There will never be a n—ger SAE/There will never be a n—ger SAE/You can hang him from a tree, but he will never sign with me/There will never be a n—ger SAE.”

On Monday, Gilbow told local media that she was unaware of any racist activity within the fraternity. “I’m in shock,” she told News 9 shortly after the video of the racist bus chant went viral.

According to the Daily News, a GoFundMe page had been created to “help raise funds for Gilbow, since the frat’s sudden closure meant she was out of a job. It raised more than $6,000 for her before disappearing around the time the Vine surfaced.”

The Daily News was unable to reach Gilbow for comment after the Vine video surfaced.


The national chapter of SAE immediately suspended the Oklahoma faction and closed the doors on the 104-year-old chapter shortly after the video surfaced. In doing so, the frat-house cook, a black man, also lost his job. According to the Daily News, a fundraiser for him remains open and has earned some $10,000.

OU President David Boren told the press Monday that SAE members had to be out of the frat house by midnight and find their own place to live without the university’s help.


“We don’t provide student services for bigots,” Boren said, according to the Daily News.  

The school has also launched an investigation into the video that the Daily News notes “could result in suspension or expulsion for some members.”


A day after the video surfaced, four-star football recruit Jean Delance announced that he wouldn’t be attending the university and that he would be reopening his recruitment, according to Yahoo Sports.

The fraternity letters were removed from the frat house, and rapper Waka Flocka Flame, who was scheduled to perform at the frat house, posted a note on Instagram Monday announcing that the show had been canceled. 


“I must say I’m disgusted and disappointed in the actions of the SAE fraternity at University of Oklahoma and I will be canceling my scheduled performance for them next month,” the Hard in da Paint rapper wrote. “Racism is not something I will tolerate.”
