Angel Rodriguez was at the center of some racial taunts during an NCAA tournament game on Thursday.
Rodriguez is a point guard with the Kansas State who played the University of Southern Mississippi. Members of Southern Mississippi's band began chanting, "Where's your green card?" while he played.
The college basketball player was born in Puerto Rico, which is a commonwealth of the United States.
According to Yahoo! Sports, Southern Mississippi President Martha Saunders apologized for the incident:
"We deeply regret the remarks made by a few students at today's game," she wrote in a statement issued two hours after the game. "The words of these individuals do not represent the sentiments of our pep band, athletic department or university. We apologize to Mr. Rodriquez (sic) and will take quick and appropriate disciplinary action against the students involved in this isolated incident."
Watch the video below and listen carefully to hear the racial taunts.
Rodriguez and K-State Wildcats defeated Southern Miss, 70-64.
