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.

    Is the sex doll that black thing on the upper left? Tacky but not the end of the world. And we think North Korea is bad.

    • I had to look for it as well. One can only see the head and neck, and it appears to be wearing a dress or blouse. A “Love Ewe” inflatable sheep would have been tacky; this was just odd.

      • IstvanIN

        Young people do silly things, the “authorities” need to focus on serious matters.

        • John Smith

          Discouraging “incorrect” thought patterns and behaviors is their main function.

        • Worrying about theft of laptops and bicycles on campus, cheating on exams, drug-dealing, underage drinking and the like is so 15 minutes ago.

        I have to get my “bonobo sex ape” website going. Domesticated bonobo apes marketed to rich pedophiles, snarky social commentary, bonbo sex apes.

        The target audience would be college guys like this and I’d sell inflatable bonobo sex apes (Sailor Mike, Pippy Shortstuffings, Beiber Boy, The Olson Apes, Choir Boy Jimmy, etc) with a cabbage patch dolls like set of adoption papers.

        I think guys like this would get a kick out of it. And not get into trouble for having a Beyoncé inflatable sex doll. Everybody wins!

        • propagandaoftruth

          Here, for example, is Sailor Mike…

          • bilderbuster

            You’re a rassiss if you forget the “Black Pete” inflatable bonobo.

        • I wonder if a “Sailor Moon” bonobo would be a useful addition to your product line.

    • Speedy Steve

      Well, David Frum (a Canadian) wrote the Axis Of Evil speech for Bush Junior. North Korea’s name came up, so did we really expect the nation that hijacked the USS Pueblo to take it lying down?

  • What, they don’t get credit from the multikulti for glorifying interracial sex?

    • Oil Can Harry

      Next week Rolling Stone will publish an expose by Sabrina Rubin Ederly describing how white male pledges could only join the fraternity if they participated in a gang rape of the Beyoncé doll.

  • superlloyd

    Pathetic all round. These weenies don’t have the cojones to stand up to the humourless, PC thought police who are aerated over a pretty feeble joke.

  • Simonetta

    Fraternities are supposed to pose for group photos with something like a plastic sex toy doll in the background. They’re 18-22 year old college men. It’s what we expect them to do. They’re supposed to be funny. Jeez. doesn’t anyone remember “Animal House”?

    Frankly I don’t see anything in the photo that looks like Bouncy.

    • Speedy Steve

      It probably smells like crack. Brap bap! That’s a joke, son!

  • james AZ

    The black frats with swift Taylor sex doll in Christmas cards. That ok …

    • B.A_2014

      If that was the Case, I would say the black frat had way better taste in their females than the white frat. Beyonce looks like a man. Look up a picture, cover her hair with your finger. . . now you see what I’m talking about.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Good! Maybe one of those frat boys will say, “Will someone throw that piece of $#%t out? It looks like a (rhymes with nerd)!”
    Besides, that college is way too liberal, Obama worshipping liberal for my taste. Perhaps a lesson in REAL diversity is what these clueless, white male democrats need.

    • CourtneyfromAlabama

      These comments about the appearance of the doll have been cracking me up. I am just now looking at it on my phone. It took me forever to find the doll in the pic, but then I saw something that looked like CP3-O (spelling?….come after me Star Wars fanatics) painted black! LOL!

    • BulgAryan

      Are they any conservative colleges in the US left you would recommend for a racially conscious young White male?

  • MekongDelta69

    I think the card is hilarious (although I had to search for the ‘so-called sex doll).’

    Have you ever seen a race as wimpy as blacks?
    [Rhetorical question.]

  • DD-762

    Three questions:

    Did I see a guy in the middle of the top row sticking a fish in his mouth? What will PETA think of that?

    Who/what is a Beyonce’?

    • John Smith

      A redbone coochie mama with a big booty.

    • HE2

      Beats me. I do not know what a Beyonce is either.
      Animal, vegetable or mineral?

      • Who Me?

        Beyoncé Knowles.

        • HE2

          Yes, well, um, er, uh, Who. Thanks.
          It is married to a rap specimen.
          ‘Nuf said.

        • HE2

          Pass the eye bleach, please. Where is bon when we need him?

          • Who Me?

            I thought Bon is a lady?

          • HE2

            You are probably right about bon being female, Who.
            Sorry, bon.

    • The All Seeing Bry

      After extensive research I have found your answer: The specimen described as “Beyonce” is some sort of half french/half black creature that crawls upon stages (mainly, but not restricted to the U.S.) with only her tribal garments covering her privates and publicly humps other animals on stage while making tribal calls into an electronic device given to her by some intelligent white man.

      • DD-762

        Aha! I think I have seen these things. Sometimes they are called by different names.

        I agree with you that these are controlled by more brilliant creatures of a certain variety, typically found in small groups located in L.A. and N.Y.C. The sole function of these small groups is to benefit monetarily from the Beyonces’ beastly behavior at the expense of the rest of civilized society.

        Thank you for your resplendent feedback.

      • Who Me?

        A REALLY intelligent white man wouldn’t give one of those things (called a microphone) to a black to play with. No telling what they would do with those things.)
        HE2, here’s more Beyoncé for your enjoyment! I can see you are enjoying it!

        • HE2

          I am overwhelmed with gratitude, Who.
          Love the smell of skin bleach in the morning.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    This is hilarious! When you think about it, a fraternity is ALL ABOUT cliquishness and exclusion! I mean, that is what fraternities (and sororities) are for! Do fraternities let in anyone and everyone who wants to get in?? Of course not? Will they even let in any white who wants to come in? Certainly not! Exclusion, to a certain degree, is what fraternities and sororities are all about! So this ridiculous pretense that they AREN’T discriminatory or exclusionist is one of the biggest idiocies of modern-day society!

    I suppose it’s okay if they exclude some whites (the nerds, the “dweebs” and other “unpopular” whites) as long as they let in a proportionate share of nonwhites. This business of posing with a nonwhite sex doll just highlighted how unintegrated they really are. That’s what the college administration couldn’t stand.

    • Fraternities and sororities are for people who liked high school so much that they wanted another four years of the same.

      • CourtneyfromAlabama

        Yes and without mom and dad waiting up for you at night!

  • FinnShane

    Yet none of the campus pc police seem concerned about the fish the guy in the middle is trying to deep throat. Speciesists.

  • See The Future

    Political correctness is destroying America.

  • phillyguy

    a school founded by Benjamin Franklin , if he was around today he would blow the place up.

  • LeonNJ

    I see an Indian guy on the top row flashing some gang signs.

  • WR_the_realist

    That thing on the upper left looks like a space alien after it’s been blasted with a blow torch.

    • Nancy

      I know, right? Looks like a brown alien to me, too.

  • newscomments70

    …yet if a black football player rapes a white coed, the incident is not even investigated, and the filthy ape is allowed to continue playing football and attending the school.

    • Evette Coutier

      Black on white rape is consistent with their values.

  • Yves Vannes

    How can kids who have been browbeat with PC since they were toddlers think they`d get away with this? Unless they are so fed up with this that it`s a bit of blow back. Shades of how they will handle PC demands as they age and acquire power. A stick it in your ear sort of attitude. I hope.

  • John Smith

    Yet their connections will allow them to get a really good job despite it all.

    • Anonymous

      This is only true for certain fraternities at 1st tier universities. Most university students attend 2nd and 3rd tier schools. If anything, frats and sororities distract those students.

      • John Smith

        It still happens, but at a 2nd and 3rd tier level.

  • Evette Coutier

    They should be slapped for having bad taste.

  • B.A_2014

    If you gave every one of these ex men a fully loaded KG9 and tied my hands behind my back, I’d still kick their asses and be home on time for dinner. Why do so many white men today look like this?

  • Amused

    Does no one see ‘Pajama Boy’ on the far right?

    • IstvanIN

      They are just young men being goofs.

  • John

    I think that is hilarious! No one has a sense of humor any more.

  • Paleoconn

    Bunch of pansies, apologizing. I’m more concerned with the dweeb in the onesie pyjamas on the right. Unless he’s imitating that Obamacare poster boy.

  • Speedy Steve

    That inflatable sex toy looks nothing like Beyonce Knowles. It looks more like an Australian life preserver.

  • MartelsGhost

    Bunch of easily intimidated beta male pansy boys. I mean a Romo jersey, a onesie and a black sex-doll? Where is their pride? Why even imitate having relations with a black female? Nobody, not even black males, want to have relations with a black female. And Beyonce? Really? A tranny married to a crack dealing 5%’er is your idea of erotic? Let this frat disappear and never be reinstated.

  • Usually Much Calmer

    The quality of both educations and careers is declining so precipitously that perhaps they are.

  • KyraNelson

    It looks like one of those 50,000 year-old pickled bog people that get dug up every now and then in Lapland or some such place. Hey, if the shoe fits……
