Fraternity Shut Down Over Nude Photo Scandal
Sounds like these guys were living in a modern day “Animal House.”
According to NY Daily News reports:
The perverted Penn State fraternity that had secret Facebook pages for naked pictures of women will be shut down for at least three years, school officials announced Tuesday.
The Kappa Delta Rho chapter “promoted a culture of harassing behavior and degradation of women,” Penn State’s vice president for student affairs, Damon Sims, said in a letter about the decision.
Sims told the school’s Interfraternity Council that Penn State was overriding that group’s recommendation of letting the frat remain active so it could rehabilitate its image and practices.
The Kappa Delta Rho chapter already got suspended in March for the rest of the spring semester, after a former member showed campus police secret pages where several members posted pictures of naked women — some who appeared to be unconscious — and also discussed drug deals and hazing rituals.
The page persistently humiliated two female students in particular, “who were degraded through multiple postings,” according to the Sims’ letter to the Interfraternity Council.
The investigation into the frat’s Facebook pages also revealed a history of drug sales, underage drinking, sexual harassment and hazing of pledges, including coerced boxing matches and making recruits maintain a painful pushup position, called a “plank,” with bottle caps put under their elbows. Pledges also had to create stories using pornographic images and come up with a “sex position of the day,” the school said in a release.
Sims noted that not all members of the frat were guilty of those twisted acts, but he said “the sum of the organizational misbehaviors is far more than the University can tolerate.”
SMH. That’s crazy that they were treating women like that. We’re amazed they got away with it for so long. Do you think the University took the right measures with the suspension?
