GAINESVILLE - Antwan Wright, a University of Florida Student says there are boundaries that shouldn't be crossed. "If they doing rappers then it's funny but if they're doing just the average black man and tried to be stereotypical with it, then yeah it's really offensive," Wright says.
Beta Theta Pi house has 180 members and their president says the fraternity’s membership is diverse. In fact he say he's disappointed in the poor judgment and actions of his brothers. The president, Ethan McMahon expressed his apologies through email, where he said and I quote: "While their actions were not intended with any malice or ill-will to the African-American community, clearly they were offensive, and our entire chapter accepts full responsibility accordingly."
