Chrissie Hynde Blames Rape Victims — 'If You're Wearing Something That Says ‘Come And F**k Me', You'd Better Be Good On Your Feet'
This is not OK.
This is not OK.
This is disgusting.
The Sigma Nu fraternity at the University of Central Florida has been officially suspended after some of its members were spotted chanting about rape while walking home from a bar.
The girlfriend of a roommate of the frat members caught the chant on video back in June and gave it to a friend, who shared it with student news services that published the disturbing content.
The vid caught the eye of the school, as well as the fraternity's national governing body, which has begun a full investigation.
Even more disturbing — but undeniably connected to the video — earlier this year a woman at UCF alleged that she was sexually assaulted by a Sigma Nu member at their off-campus house.
The content in the video is disturbing and NSFW, but you can listen to it (below):
Saturday should have been one of the best days of Patrick Kane's life.
Every hockey player that wins the championship in the NHL — the Stanley Cup — gets one day to take the trophy wherever they like, be it visiting family, friends, loved ones, or fans.
And for 26-year-old Kane, a hockey superstar who won the trophy this past season with the Chicago Blackhawks, Saturday was to be his day to take the trophy to his hometown of Buffalo, New York and parade around, basking in the glory.
Only there will now be no glory, and Kane's cup celebration was limited to family members inside his home, because Kane has been accused of rape — and the details of the alleged event, which reportedly took place last weekend, are incredibly disturbing.
According to the Buffalo News, Kane allegedly met a woman in a bar and took her home — but what supposedly followed was NOT consensual:
This legal battle is heating up.
Judy filed a suit with LA Superior Court, claiming that the comedian sexually assaulted her when she was only 15 years old.
We already knew that the 78-year-old was set to be deposed in this case, but there was a dispute about scheduling the depositions.
The comedian's legal team wanted Judy to go first, but her attornery, Gloria Allred, demanded Bill should be the first one deposed.
Aaaand… the other shoe continues to drop.
The New York Times just released a deposition of a ten-year-old court case against comedian Bill Cosby, and it paints the funnyman in a very scary light.
The almost 1,000-page transcript, released Saturday night, provides more detail into Cosby's pursuit of what he called "rendezvous" with women over the past few decades. In it, Cosby provides specific details about his calculated pursuit of Andrea Constand, the woman in question in this particular deposition who alleged being drugged and molested by Cosby.
This deposition came out in the first place when a federal judge unsealed a memorandum on Constand's 2006 case two weeks ago. That memorandum contained portions of the larger deposition, which the New York Times eventually obtained in full through a court reporting service.
According to the Times, Cosby was a smooth operator, at least with Constand:
It looks like at least some good news is coming out of this horrific Bill Cosby case. The comedian's notoriety is causing light to be shed on some pretty messed up laws.
For instance, the statute of limitations for sexual assault in the state of Nevada was only FOUR YEARS, one of the lowest in the country!
That is until Tuesday when Governor Brian Sandoval signed a bill into law that extends the window for prosecution to
This is shameful.
Columbia University student Emma Sulkowicz kicked up a storm of controversy by carrying her mattress to graduation. The art project/protest over her rape case has mostly been seen as a brave statement to bring attention to victims who are too easily dismissed.
But some at the school claim that Emma is capitalizing on the tragedy of others — and that her protest is nothing more than a hoax!
Posters have appeared all over the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan to discredit Sulkowicz, calling her a "pretty little liar."
The anonymous Twitter account @fakerape is being used to get the posters more attention:
