Forbes Axes Writer Of Column Headlined: ‘Drunk Female Guests Are the Gravest Threat to Fraternities’
Forbes magazine has removed Bill Frezza’s column from its website and removed Bill Frezza from its staff.
An example of Frezza’s prose: “As recriminations against fraternities mount and panicked college administrators search for an easy out, one factor doesn’t seem to be getting sufficient analysis: drunk female guests.”
The column appeared only days after a female student from Rutgers died after being whisked from a frat party to the hospital, and alcohol was cited as playing a role in her death.
Frezza identified himself as an MIT grad with a degree in engineering and theology who is the president of his fraternity alumni association.
The artwork accompanying the column, which was also pulled down, showed a busty, seemingly drunk woman lying on the floor with her blouse unbuttoned while swilling from a bottle of booze.
A Forbes spokeswoman said, “ Mr. Frezza is no longer a contributor to Forbes.com.”[su_csky_ad]
