Are you obsessed with Scream Queens yet? The show is scarily good, and one of the best things about it has to be the sassy, slightly evil sorority president Chanel Oberlin, who is expertly portrayed by Emma Roberts. Back in August before the show's premiere, creator Ryan Murphy talked about his inspiration for the queen bee character and credited much of it to the writer of a viral sorority email that made the rounds in 2013, saying, "It was jaw dropping, the language that this particular young woman used. She was pretty much a despicable person. And we were interested in mirroring that idea, but, unlike that girl, who apologized, sort of bringing our queen bee character to some sort of awareness about her behavior and why she is doing these things."
In case you forgot about the now-infamous letter, it was written by the chair of a sorority at the University of Maryland and took the Internet by storm thanks to its insulting and expletive-filled rant about the members and their "f*cking awkward and boring" interactions with a local fraternity. Read the entire email below, then check out Chanel Oberlin's best burns and see if you can't picture her reading this entire email word for word.
If you just opened this like I told you to, tie yourself down to whatever chair you're sitting in, because this email is going to be a rough f*cking ride.
For those of you that have your heads stuck under rocks, which apparently is the majority of this chapter, we have been F*CKING UP in terms of night time events and general social interactions with Sigma Nu. I've been getting texts on texts about people LITERALLY being so f*cking AWKWARD and so f*cking BORING. If you're reading this right now and saying to yourself "But oh em gee [first name redacted], I've been having so much fun with my sisters this week!", then punch yourself in the face right now so that I don't have to f*cking find you on campus to do it myself.
I do not give a flying f*ck, and Sigma Nu does not give a flying f*ck, about how much you f*cking love to talk to your sisters. You have 361 days out of the f*cking year to talk to sisters, and this week is NOT, I f*cking repeat NOT ONE OF THEM. This week is about fostering relationships in the Greek community, and that's not f*cking possible if you're going to stand around and talk to each other and not our matchup. Newsflash you stupid c*cks: FRATS DON'T LIKE BORING SORORITIES. Oh wait, DOUBLE F*CKING NEWSFLASH: SIGMA NU IS NOT GOING TO WANT TO HANG OUT WITH US IF WE F*CKING SUCK, which by the way in case you're an idiot and need it spelled out for you, WE F*CKING SUCK SO FAR.
This also applies to you little sh*ts that have talked openly about post gaming at a different frat IN FRONT OF SIGMA NU BROTHERS. Are you people f*cking retarded? That's not a rhetorical question, I LITERALLY want you to email me back telling me if you're mentally slow so I can make sure you don't go to anymore night time events. If Sigma Nu openly said "Yeah we're gonna invite Zeta over", would you be happy? WOULD YOU? No you wouldn't, so WHY THE F*CK WOULD YOU DO IT TO THEM?? IN FRONT OF THEM?!! First of all, you SHOULDN'T be post gaming at other frats, I don't give a F*CK if your boyfriend is in it, if your brother is in it, or if your entire family is in that frat. YOU DON'T GO. YOU. DON'T. GO. And you ESPECIALLY do f*cking NOT convince other girls to leave with you.
"But [first name redacted]!", you say in a whiny little b*tch voice to your computer screen as you read this email, "I've been cheering on our teams at all the sports, doesn't that count for something?" NO YOU STUPID F*CKING ASS HATS, IT F*CKING DOESN'T. DO YOU WANNA KNOW F*CKING WHY?!! IT DOESN'T COUNT BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN F*CKING UP AT SOBER F*CKING EVENTS TOO. I've not only gotten texts about people being f*cking WEIRD at sports (for example, being stupid sh*ts and saying stuff like "durr what's kickball?" is not f*cking funny), but I've gotten texts about people actually cheering for the opposing team. The opposing. F*cking. Team. ARE YOU F*CKING STUPID?!! I don't give a SH*T about sportsmanship, YOU CHEER FOR OUR GODD*MN TEAM AND NOT THE OTHER ONE, HAVE YOU NEVER BEEN TO A SPORTS GAME? ARE YOU F*CKING BLIND? Or are you just so f*cking dense about what it means to make people like you that you think being a good little supporter of the Greek community is going to make our matchup happy? Well it's time someone told you, NO ONE F*CKING LIKES THAT, ESPECIALLY OUR F*CKING MATCHUP. I will f*cking c*nt punt the next person I hear about doing something like that, and I don't give a f*ck if you SOR me, I WILL F*CKING ASSAULT YOU.
"Ohhh, I'm now crying because your email has made me oh so so sad". Well good. If this email applies to you in any way, meaning if you are a little asswipe that stands in the corners at night or if you're a weird sh*t that does weird sh*t during the day, this following message is for you:
DO NOT GO TO TONIGHT'S EVENT.
I'm not f*cking kidding. Don't go. Seriously, if you have done ANYTHING I've mentioned in this email and have some rare disease where you're unable to NOT do these things, then you are HORRIBLE, I repeat, HORRIBLE PR FOR THIS CHAPTER. I would rather have 40 girls that are fun, talk to boys, and not f*cking awkward than 80 that are f*cking f*ggots. If you are one of the people that have told me "Oh nooo boo hoo I can't talk to boys I'm too sober", then I pity you because I don't know how you got this far in life, and with that in mind don't f*cking show up unless you're going to stop being a g*ddamn c*ck block for our chapter. Seriously. I swear to f*cking God if I see anyone being a g*ddamn boner at tonight's event, I will tell you to leave even if you're sober. I'm not even kidding. Try me.
And for those of you who are offended at this email, I would apologize but I really don't give a f*ck. Go f*ck yourself.
