Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel ‘mortified’ due to leak of lewd emails he sent as college student

SnapchatSilicon Valley gossip website ValleyWag recently leaked Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel's emails from 2009. The emails published by ValleyWag pertain to a time period when Spiegel - the 23-year-old co-founder and CEO of self-destructing messaging app Snapchat - was one of the prominent members of the Kappa Sigma fraternity at Stanford University in California.

In response to the leaked emails, Spiegel said that he felt "mortified and embarrassed" that the "idiotic" messages which he sent as an 18- or 19- year-old college student have been leaked.

Spiegel's embarrassment at the leak of the emails evidently stems from the fact that the lewd messages are demeaning to women. In the leaked messages, Spiegel describes urinating on a woman, helping his friends get sex from inebriated "sororisluts," and getting "really high."

In addition, the leaked emails also hint at underage drinking, stripper poles, and pointing lasers at "fat chicks." In the messages, Spiegel also wrote "F-k Bitches Get Leid [sic]"; and even encouraged fellow Kappa Sigma members to get as much oral sex from women as possible. In addition, Spiegel also offered a blunt to any fraternity member who saw the most breasts in one night.

Embarrassed at the emails leak, Spiegel told TechCrunch: "I have no excuse. I'm sorry I wrote them at the time and I was [a] jerk to have written them. They in no way reflect who I am today or my views towards women."
