Virginia Tech Lacrosse Coach Apologizes for Offensive Video

Virginia Tech's women's lacrosse coach has apologized after a video surfaced showing white team members singing a song by Lil Dicky that prominently features a racial slur. 

The video, posted on social media after the Hokies' victory at Elon on Saturday, shows team members repeatedly repeating the epithet, which is part of the lyrics of the song "Freaky Friday."

Coach John Sung apologized Monday for his team's actions and says members of Virginia Tech's athletic administration have met with the team and is confident players will "learn from this mistake and understand that these actions reflect poorly on our program.''

He says the social media post does not "represent the values of our program or the principles of the university.''
