Virginia Tech Athletes in Hot Water After Singing the N-Word on Camera

Members of the VT women's lacrosse team were filmed rapping some Chris Brown lyrics that they definitely should not have been rapping.

In this clip from Desus & Mero, the VICELAND hosts discuss a video that emerged of the Virginia Tech women's lacrosse team yelling the N-word while singing along to Chris Brown's verse on Lil Dicky's song "Freaky Friday." The video caused some serious backlash, leading to an apology from the team's coach. But for Desus and Mero, perhaps the most concerning part was why anyone was listening to Lil Dicky in the first place.
