A University of Southern California student has been suspended from the infamously misogynistic email-sending fraternity Kappa Sigma, after sexual photos taken at the roof line of a campus building over the weekend were posted online. The allegedly well-documented NSFW sexytime incident took place atop the 12-story Waite Phillips Hall, reports KTLA.

Zach Timm, president of USC’s Kappa Sigma, released a statement Sunday confirming the male in the photos was a member of Kappa Sigma. Notes the Daily Trojan:

“While the actions that were taken did involve a member of our chapter we, in no way, support this kind of behavior, nor do we promote any other such actions,” Timm wrote in an email. “The member in question has been suspended from Kappa Sigma for conduct unbecoming of a Kappa Sigma and a gentleman until a more detailed investigation can be conducted.”

The woman has not yet been identified. She was initially thought to be affiliated with a sorority hosting a philanthropic event at Waite Phillips Hall on Saturday afternoon but representatives deny it was one of their members, notes KTLA. USC officials are reportedly investigating the incident to decide whether disciplinary measures will be taken.
