More trouble abounds in the Greek life on college campuses. This week the focus is on Ohio University's Acacia fraternity chapter, which has found itself the focus of a university investigation. The fraternity has been suspended from partaking in organizational activities until the investigation comes to a close.
The investigation is in regards to a video that made its way to social media of the Ohio University Acacia chapter performing a song asking for nudes. In the video the fraternity is performing a bastardized version of The Beatles "Hey Jude," with some raunchy lyrics.
"Send nudes, don't let me down. Take my soft dick and make it harder" the fraternity sang, a move that probably eliminated any possibility for nudes and earned them their suspension from campus activities. The clip fails to capture the entirety of the chant; however, the request "send nudes" is audible.
Since the video made its way onto social media on October 28, the investigation has been trying to confirm that Acacia is the fraternity involved. Ohio University spokesperson Katie Quaranta confirmed that the fraternity had been linked to the visual, which led to their suspension. It is currently unknown what will happen to Acacia once the investigation is completed.
This is hardly the first time that Ohio University's chapter of Acacia has been accused of sexual misconduct. The fraternity has made headlines as recently as August of this year, when the university's student union alleged that the fraternity was known for "drugging their free drinks and raping girls."
Ohio University also launched a previous investigation into the fraternity last year after the fraternity was blasted by "FuckRapeCulture." The student group alleged that members of the fraternity sexually assaulted and raped women at a house off campus.
The university's investigation could not substantiate the claims and the fraternity was able to escape the accusations unscathed. It does not seem like that will be the case this time around with such damning evidence in hand.
