Jon Hamm Accused of Violent Hazing at His Fraternity: Report

Jon Hamm Accused of Violent Hazing at His Fraternity: Report

Jon Hamm was reportedly involved in a violent college hazing ritual back in 1990, citing details that were revealed in a 1991 lawsuit obtained by the Associated Press.

The 44-year-old Mad Men actor was part of the Sigma Nu frat at the University of Texas-Austin, and the incident reportedly took place in November of 1990.

In the lawsuit, it is alleged that Jon went as far as to try and set a pledge on fire.

The accuser, Mark Allen Sanders, said that Jon became “mad, I mean really mad,” when he couldn’t recite something on command. The man goes on to say Jon hit him and set him on fire. “He rears back and hits me left-handed, and he hit me right over my right kidney, I mean square over it. Good solid hit and that, that stood me right up.” The man then says that he was beaten “with the claw of a hammer beneath his genitals.”

The case was widely reported back in the 90s, where Jon was identified as Jonathan Hamm.

An arrest warrant was issued and Jon was charged with hazing and received probation.

    Schools should outlaw frats and sororities. They don’t serve the purpose they were created for and are major financial liabilities.

    And why is this even a story over 20 years later? Is he running for political office? Slow news day? Geez.

    It’s called a “Hit ‘em when they’re down.” campaign to see if they act out since they shared something personal. Best ignore it.

  • Scarlett

    It’s clearly ‘sling shit at Hamm’ week. First the rumors of a split with this partner, now this.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    That’s funny. At least we can probably all realize Jon Hamm is straight anyway. If he was gay he would have sexually abused him instead of the violence…….unless Mr. Sanders is ugly? Is he? ;-)

    Liberal media is attempting to shut down the old boys network. Frats are a target right now.

  • Baseliner

    Really bringing this up more than 20 years later? that’s incredibly stupid

    I see every commentor is turning a blind eye to this guy. Wonder why? #AmericanPsycho
