A disturbing article recalling an alleged rape at the beginning of the 2012 school year was released Wednesday by Rolling Stone. The article detailed an incident that occurred in the University of Virginia’s Phi Kappa Psi house during a party.

The victim, Jackie, claims to have been gang-raped by several Phi Psi members and pledges.

From Rolling Stone:

Jackie was just starting her freshman year at the University of Virginia when she was brutally assaulted by seven men at a frat party. When she tried to hold them accountable, a whole new kind of abuse began.

The column describes the adversity she faced following the attack, along with pressure from friends and, seemingly, UVA to stay quiet and avoid making the situation public. Obviously, Jackie’s story didn’t sit well with some people, and the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity has been under siege since the story’s release.

Early this morning, the vandalism began, as “protestors” threw cinderblocks through the Phi Psi house’s windows. They followed their destruction with several spray-painted messages around the walls of the house.






The vandalism has caused the university to station police officers outside of the house to deter any further defacement of the house.

The national fraternity issued a press release on Facebook Wednesday that stated it is aware of the situation and is investigating all allegations. The Facebook post triggered a string of illogical, generalized rants against the fraternity.

Earlier today, the UVA chapter voluntarily suspended its Fraternal Organization Agreement, and it will cease all activities for the time being.
