The resignation of Rebecca Martinson from her Maryland sorority may have been less of a resignation and more of a directive by the chapter, sources say.

The author of that hilariously, offensively, head-scratchingly insane sorority girl email left Delta Gamma this week amid the controversy she created.

Sources close to the situation say Rebecca’s “resignation” came only after it was made clear that she could not stay, and would be booted imminently.

“There was no way, just no way, they were letting her stay,” a UMD insider said of behind-the-scenes talks between DG sorority decision makers.

Rebecca’s email rant to her Delta Gamma sisters – in which she unloaded on their alleged Greek Week activitiy shortcomings – leaked and went viral.

She used CAPS LOCK a lot. She asked her pals is they are blind, dense and retarded. She called them f–gots. She threatened to “c–t punch” them.

She said they were LITERALLY so F–KING BORING and AWKWARD and went on for an astonishingly long time in a borderline threatening tone.

The sorority announced this week that Rebecca has resigned, posting a diplomatic statement on the web. But insiders say she had little choice.

“She was forced out,” a source said. “They basically forced her to resign.”

“It was made very clear by the sorority what she needed to do.”

The sorority was in “don’t-blame-us mode” when Facebooking its announcement of Rebecca Martinson’s “resignation,” and wants this to blow over ASAP.

Good luck with that? Perhaps the best part of all of this? Martinson, a college junior, was not the chapter president or in any real position of authority.

Another source adds, “One of the weird things is she wasn’t really in charge of anything even though she made it seem like she was in that email.”
