Fraternities are all about brotherhood. And what is more fraternal than dousing your bro’s penis in hot sauce?

Such was the rationale of members of the Alpha Phi Alpha chapter of the University of Tennessee recently, who included dick-torching as part of their pledge process.

Unfortunately, campus officials didn’t view this as a camaraderie-building exercise. Citing hazing, they’ve revoked the fraternity’s registration until August 2016.

According to the official Notice of Charges, the spicy tactic was discovered after a concerned parent raised the flag, eventually leading to pledges’ admissions of hazing. Aside from these testimonies, formal proof of the hazing included the delivery of hot sauce-stained underpants to the Dean of Student’s office.

Some bros just can’t take the heat.
