A satirical newspaper at Rutgers University has apologized for running a crude article that called sorority members “b—s” and compared them to farm animals.

The article, which ran in The Medium, a weekly satirical newspaper similar to The Onion, was about the upcoming closing of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority, which will shut its doors next fall because of a lack of pledges, according to a campus report.
