Cornell fraternity punished over sex contest called 'Pig Roast'

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

A fraternity chapter at Cornell University has been disciplined after holding a sex contest called a "pig roast" in reference to the weight of the women the brothers slept with.

University officials reportedly received multiple complaints about the "game" created by established Beta Tau members, which was set so that "new members could accumulate "points" by engaging in sexual intercourse with women", according to a report from The Cornell Daily Sun.

"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".

President of the school's fraternity council, Paul Russell, told the Cornell Daily Sun that his group is "working to make sure these sorts of incidents don't become normalized".

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

The fraternity chapter has been put on a two-year probation, and the Ivy League university and the frat's national office denounced the game, which was the latest example of a Greek organization behaving badly.

In October, authorities arrested eight Louisiana State University students and two others on hazing charges related to the death of Maxwell Gruver, a freshman who died after a gathering at a school fraternity, The Washington Post's Eli Rosenberg reported.

The report said the contest occurred in 2017, but did not specify who was involved or for how long the contest ran.

"Through this brotherhood review process if we identify individual brothers we find not committed to [social responsibility and integrity] they will be expelled from the brotherhood", the statement said.

ZBT apologized on Facebook and released its own statement saying that the Ithaca, New York, campus chapter's behavior is not something it was aware of or condones.

The fraternity in its statement claimed the activities described were not sanctioned by the chapter and the brothers were "not aware" they were happening, despite Zeta Beta Tau declining o outright deny said activities.

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 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.
