TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

A recruitment video posted by the Alpha Phi, Beta Mu Chapter has gotten a lot of negative attention.

In the video, sorority members are shown in various situations having fun.

But some critics of the video say scenes showing the students dancing in bikinis go too far and do not reflect the student life at the University of Alabama.

UA released a statement regarding the video, which has since been removed by the sorority, but copies of the video have gone viral.

“This video is not reflective of UA’s expectations for student organizations to be responsible digital citizens. It is important for student organizations to remember what is posted on social media makes a difference, today and tomorrow, on how they are viewed and perceived," said Deborah Lane, Associate Vice President for University Relations.
