Clearly, the Delta Gamma sorority at the University of Maryland takes social events very seriously.
An anonymous tipper forwarded a reprimanding email she received from an executive board member of the sorority to Gawker. The harsh, expletive-laced online rant was a relaying of the unnamed board member’s dissatisfaction with her sisters’ performance during the university’s Greek Week. According to the email, sorority members were, in short, “awkward,” “boring,” and “retarded.” From the email’s opening until its end, the board member did not let up.
“If you just opened this like I told you to, tie yourself down to whatever chair you’re sitting in, because this email is going to be a rough fucking ride,” she began.
And a “rough ride” it was, as the board member continued to berate and belittle her sisters in a excessively abusive tirade. Among other complaints, she criticized the sorority members for their inability to interact with with the chapter’s fraternity counterpart, Sigma Nu.
“Newsflash you stupid cocks: FRATS DON’T LIKE BORING SORORITIES,” she wrote. “Oh wait, DOUBLE FUCKING NEWSFLASH: SIGMA NU IS NOT GOING TO WANT TO HANG OUT WITH US IF WE FUCKING SUCK, which by the way in case you’re an idiot and need it spelled out for you, WE FUCKING SUCK SO FAR.”
The executive board member also demanded that her sisters cheer for only their school’s team at sporting events, saying that she doesn’t “give a SHIT about sportsmanship.” She went on to threaten her sisters in the event that they refuse to comply.
“I will fucking cunt punt the next person I hear about doing something like that, and I don’t give a fuck if you SOR me, I WILL FUCKING ASSAULT YOU.”
The emailed then ended with a call to trim the fat, with the board member encouraging any sister who may “have some rare disease where you’re unable to NOT do these things” to discontinue their membership of the sorority.
“I would rather have 40 girls that are fun, talk to boys, and not fucking awkward than 80 that are fucking faggots,” she wrote.
The Delta Gamma president received word of the email going public, and attempted damaged control with Gawker. Requesting that the site remove the email, the president also assured that the board member’s sentiments were not that of the organizations involved.
“Is it possible for you to either remove the article or just remove the names “Delta Gamma” and “Sigma Nu” from your article,” she asked. “This email absolutely does not reflect our chapter’s values nor Sigma Nu’s and any assistance you can give us is greatly appreciated.”
