Sorority Girls Selfie-Shamed By Baseball Announcers Had The Classiest Response


Instead of accepting free baseball tickets after two sports announcers selfie-shamed a group of sorority sisters, the ladies of Arizona State University's Alpha Chi Omega had a better idea.

Last week, Major League Baseball announcers Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly called out the girls during a Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies game for having a good time and taking some selfies.

"Every girl is locked into her phone. Welcome to parenting in 2015," said one announcer in a video, poking fun at the girls taking photos with their food. Other quips included, "Oh, hold on. Gotta take a selfie with the hotdog" and "Can we do an intervention?" (Because, you know, dudes never, ever take selfies at sports games.)

The video featuring the announcers' misogynistic commentary went viral. Soon after, Fox Sports and the Diamondbacks apologized, offering the sorority free tickets to the next game. But rather than take them, the girls asked for tickets to be donated to families of A New Leaf, a nonprofit that helps victims of domestic violence in honor of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Man, sorority girls are just the worst, huh?
