(RNN) – The president of the University of Southern Mississippi has issued an apology after the school's band chanted "Where's your green card?" at a Kansas State freshman guard Angel Rodriguez.
The derogatory chant could be heard while Rodriguez, who was born in Puerto Rico and therefore a U.S. citizen, shot two free throws. The chant could be heard on television, and BuzzFeed captured video on their website.
Southern Miss president Martha Saunders issued this statement on the school's website:
"We deeply regret the remarks made by a few students at today's game. The words of these individuals do not represent the sentiments of our pep band, athletic department or university. We apologize to Mr. Rodriguez and will take quick and appropriate disciplinary action against the students involved in this isolated incident."
USA Today's Campus Rivalry blog reports Jeff Hammond, the interim athletic director for Southern Miss, met with the Kansas State athletic director John Currie on Thursday and expressed regret for the incident.
"I want to reach out to Conference USA and anyone else who is impacted by this and take full responsibility for this," Hammond said. "This does not represent the state or university. This is not acceptable."
The blog also reports Hammond said the Southern Miss band director put a stop to the chant.
Kansas State beat Southern Miss by a score of 70 to 64.
