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):
Immediately, the video launched an investigation by the school, and UCF will hold a hearing this week about whether the fraternity members could face punishment — anything from community service to expulsion.
Also in a statement, the national office of the Sigma Nu fraternity condemned the comments heard in the video, with executive director Brad Beacham saying:
“We are deeply troubled by the allegations and immediately suspended the accused student, pending further developments. The words used by people in the recordings are disrespectful, despicable, and vile.”
You can say that again, Brad.
