(CNN) – As fallout grows over racist chants by a University of Oklahoma fraternity, one student seen in the video is apologizing. So are the parents of a second one.

Parker Rice, one of two students expelled after appearing in the video, said he is seeking guidance to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
