Posted on 05/29/2014 5:23:58 PM PDT by dynachrome
Evan Spiegel, CEO and cofounder of $2 billion photo application Snapchat, was social chair of his Stanford University fraternity, Kappa Sigma. During that time, he wrote some cringeworthy emails to get his brothers riled up for parties. They are emails that Spiegel now tells Business Insider he deeply regrets.
The emails, obtained by Valleywag's Sam Biddle, are about as offensive and "fratty" as you can imagine, with references to cocaine, excess drinking, and urinating on women. Some of the statements from the early 2010 emails include:
See everyone on the blackout express soon. Papa Spiegel [a big-time L.A. lawyer] is liable for underage drinking, hes cool with it ... Shopping list: 1 ounce of marijuana, 1 kilo of blow
Ill roll a blunt for whoever sees the most tits tonight. When reached for comment, Spiegel told Business Insider he's "mortified" by his "idiotic emails":

I'll bet he is an obozo supporter and nothing will happen.
Some of the statements from the early 2010
That is not that long ago. I was expecting something like 1985 or something. I don’t know if you can change your thoughts four years later.
“Dude, that was like, 4 years ago.”
The internet is forever...
Very recent comments, but in internet terms, ancient, I guess.
The new liberal non-apology apology—when people act like what they said, was said by a total stranger:
“SNAPCHAT CEO: ‘I’m Mortified By My Idiotic Emails; They Don’t Reflect My Views Towards Women’”
Flip Wilson at least had a plausible excuse: “The devil made me do it!”
As long as the messages aren’t homophobic he’s probably OK.
At precisely the time the untrustworthy gummint is demanding all manner of unprecedented freedoms, the freedoms of individuals is going away.
1. a chef is said to have used a bad word ONE time 30 years prior while being robbed —her career is over
2. a bb owner says some indecorous things in a private phone conversation —his company is taken from him.
3. a CEO is found to have typed some adolescent things while he was in college —his reputation is destroyed.
John Corzine’s scam cost innocent people $1.6 billion —he didn’t do a day in jail and now he lives in a chateau in the south of France.
Hillary lost $6 billion at the DOS —a sum equal to the GNP of Monaco and Lichtenstein:
It barely was reported.
SEE THE DOUBLE STANDARD ?
You guys are right. 4 years is a life time especially in internet life.
Here is a wonderful line from a poster on a website discussing Paula Deen. This person is angry because someone else called for whites to boycott Walmart:
“you are a prejudice idoit”.
4 years ago for him (23 years old now) is the difference between being a sophomore in college, and the CEO of a billion dollar companies. Sadly, I doubt his moral fibre has changed, and he runs his company like his fraternity.
Yes you can change your thoughts that fast.
Didn’t you hear about Obama. He evolved from believing in the sanctity of traditional marriage to pushing gay marriage within a couple of.years. when it’s a liberal it can be done.
One could do worse I suppose.
He lives in the south of france? Really? These politicians really don’t have any loyalty to the US. It’s no wonder they’re selling out the whole country.
Never type anything in an e-mail you don’t want your mother or a jury to read.
But I’ll post whatever I want on FR!
Tell you what, write a seven figure check to HRC and maybe they'll call off their dogs.
Now he’s got the money to really party.
Stupid people are everywhere
My college son is on twitter and was swearing quite a bit. We didn’t raise him that way, and in HS he would get asked by other kids why he didn’t swear.
I told him that I swear once in awhile, but try hard not to. Back in college though.... However, I didn’t have a permanent record of my foul language. I reminded him that if someone (future employer, future girl friend, girl friend’s parents, etc.) wanted to to search him out his twitter posts come up pretty quick (distinctive name).
He still posts the same stupid, inane stuff, but without the F-bombs.
I weep for this species
“They Don’t Reflect My Views Towards Women’
Sure, buddy. We believe you. Words just happened to tumble out of your brain, onto the keyboard, and was somehow conveyed in emails, but it didn’t reflect your views about women......despite the fact that some of these were dated 2010. We believe you, Evan. We really do.
You’re just mortified that you got busted.
"Me too, kid."
I’m guessing that you did not read the emails that were posted online a few days ago.
Or maybe you were a frat boy and behaved the same way.
And/or maybe you have no daughters.
As a college freshman in 1976, I used our bicentennial as a reason to tell the frat pushers to pound sand.
Getting girls so drunk that you can pi$$ on them is a tad beyond adolescent behavior. JMO. That we have an untrustworthy government (Nixon had just resigned shortly before I went off to school) is hardly comparable to this kind of personal behavior.
Did he say anything bad about Homos?
If not, he has no worries.
Where are B.Obama’s notes to the Choom Gang?
