The Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity at CWRU raised some eyebrows after the fraternity performed a skit in stereotypical Mexican get-up.

Case Western Reserve University is looking into what happened during the annual Greek Week show held on campus. Videos and photos from the event show participants wearing sombreros and ponchos as they perform.

The fraternity issued a statement about the incident:

“We are concerned by the actions of the chapter. Phi Delta Theta is a values-based organization and the lack of judgment associated with this poor decision indicates a disconnect from those same values. Our goal is to determine the organizational issues associated with this misguided decision and to provide both punitive and educational action that will promote reform.” said Mike Wahba, Director of Chapter Services.
There's no word yet on if the fraternity will be punished by CWRU or the national chapter office for the skit.
