WVU Delta Tau Delta Suspended For Brother’s Real World Audition Tape

A few weeks back, I was perusing around our video submissions and came across the title “PUT THIS TOOLSHED ON FAIL FRIDAY.” Honestly, if this wasn’t in all caps, there’s just no way it would have caught my eye. And knowing the intern’s work ethic, it probably would have slipped through the cracks altogether without anyone taking a gander and making a judgement on whether or not it was “Fail Friday” worthy.

So I gave it a click, and proceeded to watch the Real World audition tape of some mohawk rocking West Virginia Delta Tau Delta walking around the chapter house talking about his fraternity munching box.

Sure, homeboy clearly is a novice in his craftsmanship of cut off gym tees, and the mohawk-diamond stud earring combo is a little too clean cut and square if you ask me, but it was far from Fail Friday material. It was far from making the publish cut, too. Very forgettable. So it got tossed and I haven’t given it a second of mind until today, as it now has the WVU Delt chapter in some hot water with nationals.

From WTAE:

The Delta Tau Delta fraternity chapter at West Virginia University has been suspended in response to a fraternity member’s video.

Multiple news media outlets report that the fraternity’s national headquarters suspended the chapter indefinitely on Tuesday after a student posted a video showing him touring the fraternity house while making comments about women that the school deemed inappropriate.

According to a university news release, the student also described social functions that violate codes of conduct.

The school says the member could face disciplinary action from the university’s Office of Student Conduct and the WVU Interfraternity Council.

Again, the video was pretty unremarkable, so that has to make this suspension even that much harder for the chapter to stomach. At least get your money’s worth and record snorting lines off the head of the girl giving you a blumpkin as you shoot revolvers into the air wearing a giant sombrero or something.

Unfortunately, the audition tape has gone private since my viewing, and I didn’t have the foresight to download the video as a whole. I promise, you’re not missing much. But here’s a screenshot of the kid.


I mean if some 160 pound I’m-just-now-starting-to-show-some-semblance-of-muscle brother grossly exaggerating about how much tail he pulls was a suspendable offense, there’d be no fraternities left.

        I thought Dorn permanently banned your IP address for posting what the people wanted ?

    Saw the video, it was just satire representing a stereotype “frat boy” for an mtv real world audition. Their nationals is soft, considering there are worse things to be suspended over.

      Saw the video as well, it was cringe worthy. This kid is a complete tool

      At no point in our history was it ever acceptable to publicly talk about eating puss and bitches hanging from the rafters while represnting a national organization and University, and was probably even more frowned upon. Now there is just 101 ways to capture and distribute it to a wide audience, so if you are stupid, 100% chance you are getting caught.

    Actual quote from the video to those who luckily haven’t seen it: “we have bitches hanging from the rafters.” One of the stupidest things I’ve ever watched.
