As if we needed reinforcing news about moronic frat boy behavior.
Four members of a University of Vermont fraternity were charged Monday violating Vermont’s new hazing law after pledges were made to dress up as gay cowboys.
The Phi Delta Gamma chapter was suspended last month after the allegations first arose. The four charged are all officers of the fraternity.
Police said that fraternity members required pledges to wear cowboy clothes similar to those worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in “Brokeback Mountain.” The pledges were then allegedly were taunted with homophobic comments.
