An innocent celebration between teammates turned out to be a pretty bad look for Virginia Techs womens lacrosse team when a video of the squad singing Lil Dickys new “Freaky Friday” song spread online.

The white rappers new hit track follows a similar theme as the 2003 film starring Lindsay Lohan in which she switches places with her mom — except in Lil Dickys version he switches places with Chris Brown.

During a portion of the song, Brown, acting as if hes Lil Dicky, fires off a string of N-words. While celebrating their win against Elon on Saturday, the seemingly all-white Virginia Tech team fired up the song and didnt hold back when the N-words came around, TMZ reports.

A video of the team singing the song on their bus was first posted to Snapchat by a member of the team, but ended up on YouTube and has since gone viral. Obviously it resulted in some considerable backlash warranting an apology from head coach John Sung.

“This is a teachable moment,” Sung told The Roanoke Times. “Its not something that were proud of. The team is very apologetic and sorry. Theres nobody of any color that should say it. Period. Theres nobody that should say it.”

So far nobody on the team has been disciplined for their actions, TMZ reports.
