College President Apologizes After Viral Video Shows Him Drinking From Beer Bong At Football Tailgate

The president of Southeast Missouri State University has apologized for a viral video that showed him drinking from a beer bong at a tailgate party while students cheered him on.

Carlos Vargas-Aburto was seen in the video from the university’s September 15 football game against Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, the Associated Press reported. The short clip gained viral attention after being posted to Twitter and was viewed more than 150,000 times in just a few hours after being posted. It also attracted attention from media outlets and was popular among college football fans both on social media and football forums.
