A UC Irvine fraternity volunteered to suspend itself this week after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface.
Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014.
"This decision is mainly due to the abhorrent, insensitive and highly offensive 'blackface' video created by our members that has been circulated widely on the Internet," members of the Asian fraternity said in a statement on its Facebook page.
Lambda Theta Delta came under fire toward the end of April for the video on its YouTube page that showed four of its members lip-syncing to the Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z song "Suit and Tie."
The student playing Jay-Z wore blackface in the video.
Members of UCI's Black Student Union said the video was indicative of a racist atmosphere at the campus and pointed to another video by the fraternity that briefly showed someone wearing blackface at a Halloween party.
