'Joke' Rape Film Sparks UConn Uproar Video scrubbed from UCTV following protests By Mary Papenfuss, Newser User Posted Feb 2, 2012 3:22 AM CST 15 comments Comments UCTV scrubbed "comedy vid" after protests. (Facebook) (Newser) – What is it with New England universities? Just days after news broke that a sex assault accusation may have scuttled a Yale quarterback's chance at a Rhodes Scholarship comes word of a "joke" rape video aired on the University of Connecticut's student broadcast network. The "comedy sketch," part of UCTV's "Shenanigans" series, reveals a crying female—called a "stinky bitch"—who is "crying rape." The sketch ends with the character being strangled by her attacker. The short was aired twice, but scrubbed after howls of protest, and UCTV administrators apologized. The campus Women's Center held a protest last night. Gawker has the film here.
