UC Irvine Fraternity Lambda Theta Delta Catching Sh*t for Making Video Featuring a Dude in Blackface

By / 04.26.13

According to OC Weekly:

Another day, another frat bro in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta (LTD), the largest and oldest Asian American fraternity at UC Irvine, is under fire after members produced a music video inspired by the Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z collaboration, “Suit and Tie.” In the video, four young men dressed in suits and white shades are seen dancing and lip-synching to the hit single. One of them plays Jay-Z. In blackface. Really.

The video was created as promotion for the fraternity's annual “installs” event, which celebrates the entrance of new brothers. It was posted on YouTube with the disclaimer: “No racism intended. All fun and laughter.” But many students didn't laugh. Instead, controversy and outrage ensued.

The blackface production is below.
