Fraternity Suspended over Holiday Card Showing Mostly White Group with Beyoncé Sex Doll

Fox News, December 17, 2014

A University of Pennsylvania fraternity has been suspended pending an investigation into a holiday card showing the mostly white group posing with what it says was a Beyoncé sex doll.

Phi Delta Theta’s national leadership halted its Penn chapter this week amid concerns the image–criticized as racist and misogynistic–shows a lack of judgment that’s inconsistent with its values.

The chapter issued an apology and says it displayed poor judgment by including the sex toy in a holiday picture. They say they weren’t being racist.


The university says it supports ongoing student conversations stemming from the controversy.
