Karen Owen List- Sex Scandal Goes Viral

Thursday, October 7, 2010

The Karen Owen List is the result of a senior thesis joke, named ” An education beyond the classroom: excelling in the realm of horizontal academics”. The “thesis’ described in detail all the Duke University athletes she had slept with. It was posted online and spread like wildfire everywhere.
As a result, Karen Owen took down all her social network profiles, as she has become one of the most hated women in America this week.
The thesis is a power point presentation listing 13 Duke University athletes, along with detailed descriptions and 1 to 10 ratings. Owen’s list is pages long and contains names, dates and private physical attributes.
“There’s no going back now, but maybe Owen should have written out her thesis with pen on real paper, or printed out just one copy that she shared with her friends in person. By putting it in an electronic format and sending it out by email, she practically invited it to go viral”, said Forbes.
Karen Owen issued an apology for the list to “Jezebel” :”The people that are named are the kinds of people that everyone wants to be or be with. I regret it with all my heart. I would never intentionally hurt the people that are mentioned on that.”
