The Marine Corps has opened an investigation over this Snapchat video of Marines


The Marine Corps has opened an investigation into a Snapchat video of Marines yelling racial slurs on Friday.

The two videos were first posted on Snapchat on Friday but spread on social media when a black activist and teacher from New Jersey tweeted the videos to the Marine Corps.

“Marines drinking and randomly yelling ‘f**k n*****s’ on snapchat. Is this commonplace @USMC?,” the teacher, Zellie Imani, wrote.

The footage clearly shows at least two young Marines yelling “f**k n*****s” into the camera.

“We can confirm some of the individuals portrayed in the videos are U.S. Marines,” III Marine Expeditionary Force said in a statement. “The actions depicted in the videos are not in keeping with the high standard of conduct to which we hold all our Marines. We will thoroughly investigate the matter and take appropriate action based on the results of the investigation.”

It is not clear how many of the people in the footage are Marines or what disciplinary action they face.
