Members of Yale’s Delta Kappa Epsilon chapter met with members of the school’s women’s center last night to apologize for the vulgar chants that were shouted across campus as part of the fraternity’s initiation ceremony.
The Yale Daily News reports:
At their pledge initiation on Old Campus, DKE members shouted phrases such as “No means yes, yes means anal” and “No means yes, yes means anal” and “My name is Jack, I’m a necrophiliac, I f— dead women.” Some of the students were blindfolded and being led in a line with their hands on each others’ shoulders.
In an e-mail to the News Thursday, DKE President Jordan Forney ’11 called the pledge chants “inappropriate, disrespectful, and very hurtful to others.”
“It was a serious lapse in judgement by the fraternity and in very poor taste,” he said, adding that DKE does not condone sexual violence.
