Frat Chapter at Cornell 'Horrified' Over 'Pig' Sex Game

'Pig Roast' Cornell frat forced pledges to participate in fat shaming sex contests

Cornell's Zeta Beta Tau fraternity has been placed on probationary recognition after University officials found out that it was having a "Pig Roast" competition among new members and pledges.

According to the Cornell Daily Sun, a report conducted by Cornell's fraternity and sorority review board revealed that Zeta Beta Tau's demeaning and fat-shaming contest happened sometime in 2017, but did not disclose participating members nor the length of the competition.

"In the event of a tie, additional points were awarded to the new member who had had sex with a woman who had weighed the most", the report continues, adding that members "were told not to inform the women of the contest".

Vice president for student and campus life Ryan Lombardi said ZBT's behavior "is abhorrent to me and antithetical to our values as a community".

"Behavior that degrades and dehumanizes women contributes to a climate and culture of tolerance for sexual violence", he said.

Members were forbidden to tell the women about the game and according to the investigation, women involved in the "pig roast" were not aware of the contest.

Zeta Beta Tau will be on probationary recognition for two years, during which they'll have to pass a full chapter brotherhood review by the national Zeta Beta Tau organization, as well as participate in programs like Cornell's Sexual Assault Awareness Week.

"An investigation that concluded in January of 2018 determined that the chapter conducted a contest in which new members could accumulate "points" by engaging in sexual intercourse with women", the university said in a statement.

In a statement released Saturday, the Cornell chapter of the fraternity said it was in "disbelief" over the allegations of misconduct.

School officials said they launched a probe into the frat after receiving "multiple reports" previous year regarding the cruel game.

The terms of the probation include hiring a live-in advisor, submitting to external reviews and taking part in education on sexual violence.

The chapter said that, following a membership review, they plan to expel any members that "we find not to be committed to these said ideals and values" of "social responsibility and integrity".

Zeta Beta Tau have also said it is planning to host educational programs on healthy relationships.

The chapter is also required to work closely with the OSFL this semester to hire an adviser, do a facility walkthrough, create a transition program and have monthly meetings about progress updates.
