Outraged! UP community talks frat culture after Upsilon leak
It is quite a morning for Upsilon Sigma Phi. As lengthy screenshots of their chat messages surfaced online, many UP students reacted to the content of their controversial exchange.
Members of Upsilon in their most daring role as right-wing, misogynistic, pro-Marcos shitheads. Nakakagalit. Ang dami-daming namatay at tinorture noong Martial Law tapos meron kayong kapal ng mukha magsalita ng ganyan. pic.twitter.com/CVr9RkBsmL

One pointed out that Upsilon just revealed itself as “Marcos-apologist shitheads.” In the exchange used in the tweet, one member bragged and underestimated the effects of Martial Law in the country. They even continued to blame the first quarter storm for the rising inflation and emphasized that the only reason ML failed in the country is because of the protesters.
First of all, I'm not a Muslim. My dad is, I am not. Second, what's your problem with Muslims? Why do you use people's identities to assert your superiority? And you joke about genocide?
Idk if these screenshots are legitimate but anger is at the tip of my tongue. pic.twitter.com/ci4GRZ30VG

UP Medicine student, Omid Siahmard also retaliated after he was mentioned in their group chat for his opinions. The abogado asked why these fratmen thought it will be funny to mock Muslims or genocide, in general.
Frat men need to understand that the issue isn’t just nuanced to Upsilon’s toxicity, but is also a SYSTEMIC problem. Please don’t use the recent events for your and your frat’s self-preservation. You are also a part of a historically exclusionary and elitist institution.

One also noted that these toxicity exhibited by Upsilon is not exclusive to their fraternity. This is a systemic problem in the UP community that needs to be addressed.
