Rebecca Martinson Resigns From Delta Gamma Following Sorority Scandal
And now we’ve reached the end: Disgraced Delta Gamma sis Rebecca Martinson has resigned from the University of Maryland chapter of her sorority, following a week of radio silence from Martinson and the chapter. Yup, the woman who has gifted us with the phrase “cunt punt” has left the building. In a public statement, Delta Gamma said that the “tone and content of [Martinson's] email was highly inappropriate and unacceptable by any standard.”
The full letter is after the jump!
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.
We’ll always have “go fuck yourself!” [HyperVocal]
