Rebecca Martinson, Delta Gamma Sorority Leader, Resigns After Email Goes Viral
Rebecca Martinson, the Delta Gamma sorority sister at the University of Maryland whose expletive-filled email rant was leaked the other week, has effectively resigned from the sorority.
"Delta Gamma has accepted the resignation of one of its members whose email relating to a social event has been widely distributed and publicized," read a post on the official Delta Gamma Facebook page.
"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. As all reasonable people can agree, this is an email that should never have been sent by its author. Period."
The email in question was obtained by Gawker last week. In it, Martinson lambastes her fellow sorority sisters for their lackluster performance as members of Delta Gamma. Derivatives of the word "f–k" appeared 41 times in the email, which calls the sisters boring, awkward, repellent to members of the opposite sex and mentally slow. She also threatened to assault them if they continue to underperform socially. The email closed:
"And for those of you who are offended at this email, I would apologize but I really don't give a f–k. Go f–k yourself."
Unfortunately for Martinson, one offended sorority sister opted to leak the email to the media, necessitating not only an apology, but a resignation.
