University of Maryland junior Rebecca Martinson rocked Greek week when her passionate plea to her sisters (or, as some have called it, her “deranged email”) to suck less was leaked and instantly went viral.

The one girl willing to give them a NEWSFLASH, oh wait, DOUBLE F–KING NEWSFLASH about their behavior has officially resigned. “Delta Gamma has accepted the resignation of one of its members whose email relating to a social event has been widely distributed and publicized,” the official Delta Gamma Facebook explained in a post.

Delta Gamma further explained, “This email should not be depicted in any way as standard or routine or tied to any official sorority voice. It is not an official voice or message and should not be construed as such.”

Delta Gamma seems to acknowledge that Martinson never intended her email for public consumption, but conclude that ‘no matter who released it to the pubic or how it reached such a mass audience, the email content should not reflect on any sorority woman in general or any fraternal organization at large.’

Martinson was later forced to delete her Twitter account after Jezebel posted screen shots of her tweets that took shots at people of different races, ages, body types and sexual orientations.

She also managed to insult different ethnic groups with comments like ‘one of the perks of going to class ugly is that the Mexicans working along the sidewalk don’t try to talk to me #fug4thewin #nottryinghard’ and ‘I like my men like I liked my karate movies. . . vaguely Asian but white enough that I can understand what they’re saying.’

Her colorful commentary ranged from sexual orientations (‘Why am I not surprised that the girl w/ a pink mohawk and cargo pants is talking about LGBT rights when it doesn’t even apply to this class’), religion (‘you know you go to Maryland when the guy next to you at the gym is wearing a yammaca’) and age (‘old people everywhere’).

In the original email Martinson closed with ‘for those of you who are offended at this email, I would apologize, but I really don’t give a f***.’
