Pig Roast Sex Contest Ends with Probation for Cornell Fraternity
A pig roast sex contest where fraternity members score points by having sex with overweight women has ended with the Kappa Chapter of Zeta Beta Tau at Cornell being placed on probation for 2 years.
"The Kappa Chapter of Zeta Beta Tau is horrified at the notion of the degradation and/or objectification of women, and the impact it has had on men and women across the United States, and at Cornell," writes the fraternity in a press release following the incident.
The allegations came to light last December and a hearing with the Cornell University Fraternity and Sorority Review Board was conducted. "Upon hearing the details of what was alleged the Chapter Leadership and Brotherhood at large were, and continue to be, just as shocked and appalled."
The Kappa Chapter is conducting a membership review and will expel any member not committed to the values and ideals of the chapter. "We are looking inward to ensure this type of behavior never occurs by anyone connected with ZBT, or the campus community as a whole, on our watch."
A live in advisor will be required during the 2 year probation at the college in Ithaca. "This inexcusable behavior will not be tolerated, and as such, we will take the necessary steps to ensure we retain the ideals and values of our brotherhood, specifically Social Responsibility and Integrity."
