" Alpha Phi deleted the video, which had 500,000 views on YouTube before it was taken down, but it has since been uploaded to YouTube by others. The chapter also has taken down its Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr pages. The controversy began with an opinion piece by AL.com writer A.L. Bailey, who called it "all so racially and aesthetically homogeneous and forced, so hyper-feminine, so reductive and objectifying, so Stepford Wives: College Edition."

The headline of the story calls the video "worse for women than Donald Trump," who recently drew fire for comments to Fox News host Megyn Kelly that some viewed as sexist. Bailey also calls the sorority members "poster children for detrimental stereotypes and cliches."

"These young women, with all their flouncing and hair-flipping, are making it so terribly difficult for anyone to take them seriously, now or in the future,'' Bailey wrote. "

Couldn't care less about the Greek system, but c'mon, it's bimbos bouncing around in a video. Who cares?
