Indiana University’s Alpha Tau Omega fraternity has been suspended following allegations of hazing revealed in a sexually explicit video.
The video, which was widely circulated on social media, appears to show a pledge performing a sexual act on a woman. A Reddit post of the video claimed it was the ATO fraternity at Indiana and includes a caption that alleges the fraternity forces its pledges to perform sex acts with strippers.
The university posted on Twitter late Wednesday that there would be an investigation:
“The video is highly offensive and is antithetical to the values of Alpha Tau Omega,” Wynn Smiley, CEO of the national chapter of ATO, said in a statement emailed to IndyStar.com. “If confirmed, the men who were a part of such an outlandish incident do not represent the fraternity and damage the fraternity’s name for thousands of other ATO undergraduates and alumni across the country.”
