Indiana University suspends sorority after Black pledge shares hazing accusations

Indiana University has suspended Kappa Kappa Gamma

A young woman is accusing sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma of hazing her.

Langdan Willoughby of Indiana University Bloomington says she was hazed by the sorority back in 2020. Greek organizations have been suspended in the past at the school for similar activitiesper the school’s paper, Indiana Daily Student. And now Kappa Kappa Gamma can be added to the list.

According to the Indy Star, the organization has been suspended.

“Delta Chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma at Indiana University is one of our longest-standing chapters, yet we will not stand by while instances of violence or the threat of violence are perpetuated among our membership,” per a statement by the sorority’s national organization last week. “The health and safety of our members are always our top priority.”

Other individuals who were pledges at the time with Willoughby, 19, say what she alleges is true. The teen tells the publication she was told by the members of the sorority, to “Get on your knees” because “The boys are coming!” while in a dark basement at Kappa Kappa Gamma house at 1018 East Third Street.

Willoughby and about 50 other pledges were allegedly told they would either have to inhale cocaine or perform fellatio in a game called ‘blow or blow.’ The sisters of Kappa Kappa Gamma were apparently running around with paddles in lingerie and took the pledge’s cell phones.

But instead of being forced to perform an act, the sisters yelled, “Just kidding!” The entire situation had been a prank but a psychologist who spoke to the publication said the acts are still considered hazing because they were meant to intimidate and define hierarchy.
