Disgusting Party at Nebraska -- Update

Posted on: February 4, 2009 4:40 pm
 

The University of Nebraska has asked the poster of an item on Facebook to remove the entry.

The item was a party invitation and it appears below. It was tasteless and crude. Referring to a woman as a "hoe" is never a good thing.

More importantly, a number of Nebraska football players had accepted invitations to the party.

The Nebraska athletic department was not amused after discovering the party invite and asked whoever put it up to take it down.

It's gone.

Good for Nebraska.

Tolerating that kind of attitude towards women is unacceptable. That's the kind of attitude that produced such Nebraska class acts as Christian Peter and Lawrence Phillips.

Nice to see this version of the Nebraska athletic department understands that.

Disgusting Party at Nebraska -- Update

Mike-

Normally I would chalk this up to "kids being kids", but I have to wonder who thought this was a good idea. 

I can remember back to college days and having insane parties that I certainly would not throw now.  That is part of growing up and becoming responsible, but I cannot remember having or attending a party with a theme like that.

Disgusting Party at Nebraska -- Update

I've heard of all sorts of names for college parties and a popular but trite name for one is the "pimps and hoes" or a tennis "ho's n pros" where everyone wears tennis gear etc etc.

 

I don't find it offensive.  If these parties were such failures or if women thought the term demeaning then they shouldn't attend.

 

But trying to draw a line in the sand over the term ho when using it to speak of women, well that ship has left port quite some time ago.

Pimp: You call us idiots at CBSSports.com.

But I noticed you've been posting since October.

So you call us idiots and then post under our articles.

What does that make you?

The idiot-ee?

Journalistic Integrity...

Seriously, what the heck? Using facebook as a "source" to report a damaging story, without getting hard facts, is careless and classless. You might as well start reporting Wikipedia as fact. The University addressed the issue, and it was found that no-one tied to the football team was involved. Get the facts straight. Just because it's the offseason doesn't allow you to post unverified stories to garner visits. You sir, owe some people an apology.

I agree its a bad idea but who hasn't been to a pimp and hoes party?  I mean this is just college stuff, its like a toga party.  Harmless stuff.  Again, I'm glad they took it down as Nebraska should not condone it but seriously what a non story.

You better save your ass by taking that post down as well. This administration doesn't mess around with this kind of reporting either. Searching Facebook as a source to blog on? Slow news day huh Mike. Go back to talking about how Phelps got a pass for the pot picture because he is white... where does CBS find you idiots?
