Virginia Tech women

Quote:
Members of the all-white Virginia Tech women’s lacrosse team have come under fire after a Snapchat video surfaced showing them singing a rap song with the n word in the lyrics.

The 13-second clip, which went viral on social media, shows several of the players on a team bus singing the lyrics to Freaky Friday, a song by rappers Lil Dicky and Chris Brown.

The footage shows the players on a bus that was driving back home to Blacksburg following a win over Elon University in Burlington, North Carolina this past Saturday.

After one of the players uploaded the clip to Snapchat, it was shared by a social media user who disseminated it on Twitter.

The person who shared it on Twitter said that the player believed to have uploaded the video to Snapchat contacted them and asked that the video be deleted, according to Deadspin.
What I find ridiculous is that they weren't even saying the word to be offensive, they were just singing along with a song. So what, it's okay for black people to constantly put the n word in their songs and certainly are okay with white people buying it, but they should never sing along?
