Like everybody else who is rich or famous and disliked in 2014, young Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel is now having his old emails and messages parsed and publicized to make him look like a total privileged rich white sexist asshole. He almost certainly is, but that’s not really the point. The media and his detractors have keyed in on Evan’s Animal House exultations to his Kappa Sigma brothers at Stanford while he served as their Social Chairman:
this has happened because we are all having a blast together, so, give yourself a pat on the back, or have some girl put your large kappa sigma dick down her throat because you fucking HANDLED this weekend. Can’t wait to see everyone on the blackout express soon — evan
I wonder if my TA has ever been peed on. She’s pretty hot for a TriDelt.
There’s a a ton more shit about raging and kegs and drugs and getting super fucked up and getting laid and how certain sorority girls are bitches and other stuff that is exactly what you would imagine a rich kid named Evan who wears a robe and is the social chairman of a frat would say in private emails to his beta male idiotic brothers. Though not technically idiotic since they invented Snapchat and are worth billions, but you get the point. When the messages went public, Evan was forced to respond with some empty apology crafted by his public relations team:
I’m obviously mortified and embarrassed that my idiotic emails during my fraternity days were made public. I have no excuse. I’m sorry I wrote them at the time and I was [a] jerk to have written them. They in no way reflect who I am today or my views towards women.
Obviously, who can be held accountable for what they wrote all of three to four years ago. I’m sure you no longer feel the TriDelt girls need a good piss in the face. And who under the age of 60 has even been ‘mortified’. But isn’t the point really that you’re just a run of the mill asshole that we all could be made out to be if anybody parsed our history of private emails and text messages? Maybe not as a big of an asshole as you, but close. Everybody is vulnerable to this kind of digital record these days. If only there were an application that allowed stupid young people to share pictures of their genitals and find the after-school weed connect and make hateful social comments without any lingering record. Evan invented the cure for his own disease, he just didn’t do it soon enough.
