Stanford Condemns Snapchat CEO’s E-Mails in Message to Students

Stanford University sent a message to undergraduates condemning e-mails sent by Snapchat Inc. Chief Executive Officer Evan Spiegel when he belonged to a fraternity at the school.

The e-mails from 2009 and 2010, which celebrated getting drunk and convincing sorority women to perform sexual acts, were published by Gawker Media LLC’s Valleywag blog this week. Spiegel subsequently issued an apology. Stanford Provost John Etchemendy said in a note to students today that the university community was “positively ashamed” that the messages were sent.
