This is the shocking moment students at the University of Southampton were filmed singing racial slurs while on their way to a football team social.
Members of Mayflower FC, can be heard singing ‘there was one naked n***** on the bus,’ in a video posted to Snapchat.
The disgusting slurs were chanted as the group made their way to Oceana, a nightclub in the city centre, on Wednesday evening last week.
The student who posted the video told the student paper, The Soton Tab: ‘I never intended to say the word. I was drunk. I’m not racist.’
The club has since confirmed that the player who filmed and participated in the chanting will be removed from the club.
The social secretary told the student paper: ‘The committee has decided as a majority to remove this player from the club.
‘We do not by any means condone this disgusting behaviour.
‘There should be a zero tolerance from the whole of society on comments like this’, adding that the incident ‘tarnishes’ both Mayflower FC and football as a whole.
The incident has since led to the resignation of the social secretary who told the student paper: ‘You’re represented by the company you keep and what does it say about me if I let myself be associated by racists. It’s sickening.’

Professor Mark E. Smith, President and Vice Chancellor of the University of Southampton said: ‘The University of Southampton and the Students’ Union will not tolerate any form of racist behaviour by anybody at the University and we have taken action on this as a matter of urgency.
‘We are working in partnership with the Students’ Union on this issue and staff from the University will speak to all members of Mayflower FC as we work swiftly to identify the individuals responsible for those appalling scenes.
‘Once identified, they will face our rigorous disciplinary proceedings.
‘The University of Southampton is proud to be a part of the local community and being open and respectful.
‘I want all our neighbours to understand how seriously we take it when any members of the University behave in this way.’
