It’s now confirmed that the CEO of Snapchat is a bit of a jerk. Evan Spiegel, who has been in the middle of a few interesting news stories in regards to his app Snapchat, has accidentally revealed a whole new side of himself through a bunch of e-mails that are currently being circulated around the internet.
His app Snapchat promises to make all photos and videos disappear, and we’re pretty sure Spiegel wishes the contents in some of those old e-mails he sent out would now go away just as quickly as a photo or text in a Snapchat message.
The CEO is suffering through his 2009 frat boy days as a bunch of e-mails from his time at Stanford University were leaked. All of the e-mails sent by Evan Spiegel use some form of vulgar language. Valley Swag had a ball with what he had to say, and even made cute little graphics, incorporating his face with some vile quotes pulled from his college e-mails.
Now we would like to give the Snapchat CEO and co-founder the benefit of the doubt. A lot can change in four years, but the e-mails are so vile it’s hard to picture Spiegel being anything other than a Diet Coke version of the misogynistic author Tucker Max.
Here’s a look at one of the e-mails sent by the CEO:
In case you’re interested, Spiegel talks about shooting lasers at “fat chicks”, doing coke, drinking underage, and peeing on women in the other e-mails. While Spiegel, 23, was at Stanford he was a member of the university’s fraternity Kappa Sigma. During his time there the frat was temporarily kicked off of the campus because they violated the school’s Controlled Substances and Alcohol Policy.
It looks like Spiegel is feeling a bit of remorse or at least regret over sending the e-mails that leaked. According to the Los Angeles Times, the CEO is said to be “mortified” over the e-mails.
“I’m obviously mortified and embarrassed that my idiotic emails during my fraternity days were made public. I have no excuse,” Spiegel said. “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.”
Obviously Spiegel was a hard partier during his days at Stanford, but he also left another big impression, as this was also the time where he developed the popular app Snapchat.
