Sorority sister behind profanity-laced email rant resigns from Delta Gamma at University of Maryland
Last Updated: 224 days ago
COLLEGE PARK, Maryland - The sorority girl who wrote the infamous profanity-laced email to her Delta Gamma sisters at the University of Maryland at College Park has resigned.
In the over-the-top email, the woman said the feedback she received from fraternity members portrayed the chapter as "awkward" and "boring" and the sorority sisters needed to shape up.
"I do not give a flying [expletive], and Sigma Nu does not give a flying [expletive] about how much you [expletive] love to talk to your sisters. You have 361 days out of the [expletive] year to talk to sisters, and this week is NOT, I [expletive] repeat NOT ONE OF THEM," she said in the email.
"If this email applies to you in any way, meaning if you are a little [expletive] that stands in the corners at night or if you're a weird [expletive] that does weird [expletive] during the day, this following message is for you: DO NOT GO TO TONIGHT'S EVENT," she wrote.
"Seriously, if you have done ANYTHING I've mentioned in this email and have some rare disease where you're unable to NOT do these things, then you are HORRIBLE, I repeat, HORRIBLE PR FOR THIS CHAPTER." (Read the entire email on deadspin.com: http://tinyurl.com/cg93ebe)
Since the email was made public online, it has sparked thousands of comments ranging from support to ridicule.
The email gained even more attention when it was parodied on the comedy video website Funny or Die by Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon in a four-minute dramatic reading.
The student, whose name is being withheld by ABC News, sent the email to her sorority sisters following their week-long events with another fraternity on campus.
The student has since disabled her social media accounts, but the sorority released this statement on their Facebook page Wednesday:
Delta Gamma has accepted the resignation of one of its members whose email relating to a social event has been widely distributed and publicized through social media and traditional media channels.
The tone and content of the email was highly inappropriate and unacceptable by any standard.
No matter who released it to the public or how it reached such a mass audience, the email content should not reflect on any sorority woman in general or any fraternal organization at large.
This is a regrettable action by a college junior – a personal email that is now on view for a global audience. And as all reasonable people can agree, this is an email that should never have been sent by its author. Period.
This email should not be depicted in any way as standard or routine or tied to any official sorority voice. It is not an official voice or message and should not be construed as such.
For the young woman who wrote it, we can only express our regret and concerns for landing notoriety in this manner.
We now consider this matter closed.
