The administration refused to release the video despite students protesting and calling for it with #WheresTheVideoSU, but university newspaper the Daily Orange obtained it and posted it on YouTube Wednesday night.
A Syracuse University fraternity video mocking gay, Jewish, black and disabled people has been suspended after a leaked video of the society's initiation process sparked outrage online. University Chancellor Kent Syverud said he was working to identify specific individuals and to take legal action. In the six minute video frat members use racist, ethnic, sexist and "ableist slurs".
Clearly, the brothers never intended for this video to see the light of day, but when one records anything, one had best be prepared for it to be made public.
"There is absolutely no place at Syracuse University for behavior or language that degrades any individual or group's race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, disability or religious beliefs", he wrote.
"The video isn't surprising - it's a manifestation of microaggressions, rumors, whispers and outright acts of hatred marginalized students encounter in their time at SU", the Daily Orange said in an editorial.
The fraternity stated: "None of the satire was said or done in malice".
In a message posted on their website Thursday, Theta Tau apologized for the video, but provided "context" and "circumstances" that led to the actions of its members.
"It was revealed that the video was a parody, skit, or roast of the active brothers by a pledge class, and not Chapter members hazing, humiliating, or disparaging its pledges as the university had described to our Central Office".
"This behavior is the antithesis of everything that Le Moyne, as a Jesuit institution, stands for - including tolerance, acceptance and inclusiveness", LeMura said in a statement.
Earlier Wednesday, Syracuse students demonstrated in front of the chancellor's building and the Theta Tau fraternity to demand the release of the videos after they were removed from Facebook.
One student, immediately after that comment, told Syverud: "If you love us, show us".
