OXFORD, MS (WMC) -

According to a spokesperson for the University of Mississippi, they are not investigating Phi Delta Theta for hazing after a video went viral of their former member Brady Eaves biting the head off a hamster.

The spokesperson says he was initiated at the time, and feels that it has nothing to do with the fraternity.

"I thought it was really gross and didn't represent how we are here at Ole Miss," said student Blake Lewis.

The video shows Eaves biting the head off a hamster on spring break in Florida. It has a lot of students taking, but not just about the video.

Students are wondering about Greek life in general.

"It portrays what your fraternity is about, even if it's not actually about that, it's what people are seeing," said student Taylor Mitchell.

Many of the students at the university said they have never heard of hazing on campus. Others say despite the university's feeling that they aren't involved, they are skeptical about it.

Since the video went viral, Eaves was removed from the fraternity, and has withdrawn for the University of Mississippi.
