Indiana University Frat Suspended After Video of Possible Sexual Assault Hazing Surfaces
The Alpha Tau Omega chapter at Indiana University is suspended tonight, after a video depicting what looks like a horrific hazing ceremony surfaced on Twitter. In it, a student appears to be forced to perform oral sex on a woman—it’s unclear if either is consenting.
Our campus is committed to a culture of care. Alpha Tau Omega (ATO) is suspended immediately, pending investigation into hazing allegations.— Indiana University (@IUBloomington) October 8, 2015
It’s unclear who leaked the 29-second clip, now circulating on Twitter through an account called “ATO Video,” or when the events therein took place. It appears to show a crowd of shirtless men crouched around two women and a group of clothed male onlookers, while another man is kicked as his head is between the second woman’s legs. All that’s heard above the cheering is one man yelling “Scotty” repeatedly. According to the tweet source, the woman apparently receiving oral sex (forcibly or otherwise) is a stripper.
