Rebecca Martinson, the University of Maryland sorority girl whose scathing, profanity-laced email to her fellow sisters went viral last week, has deleted her Twitter account after national media uncovered a string of racist and offensive tweets.

"One of the perks of going to class ugly is that the Mexicans working along the sidewalk don't try to talk to me #fug4thewin #nottryinghard," she tweeted April 3.

"You know you go to Maryland when the guy next to you at the gym is wearing a yammaca (sic)," she wrote.

"Why am I not surprised that the girl w/ a pink mohawk and cargo pants is talking about LGBT rights when it doesn't even apply to this class," said posted.

Martinson, a Delta Gamma sorority executive board member, penned a nasty email to her chapter that went viral last week after Gawker published her rant in full.

Since then, actor Michael Shannon of "Boardwalk Empire" fame has parodied Martinson's letter with a dramatic reading for Funny or Die, and Barbie has even put her own spin on it for an episode of the YouTube show, "The Most Popular Girls in School."

In the explative-laced email, Martinson berates her sorority sisters for being "so f BORING" and "so f AWKWARD" at sorority events.

"If you're reading this right now and saying to yourself 'But oh em gee Rebecca, I've been having so much fun with my sisters this week!' then punch yourself in the face right now so that I don't have to f find you on campus to do it myself," the letter reads. "Newsflash… SIGMA NU IS NOT GOING TO WANT TO HANG OUT WITH US IF WE F SUCK, which by the way in case you're an idiot and need it spelled out for you, WE F SUCK SO FAR."

As Martinson's email reached viral proportions, Delta Gamma issued a statement distancing itself from the sorority girl. Martinson has resigned from the executive board and her chapter.

"We want to make it clear that this letter in no way reflects the values of Delta Gamma as an International Fraternity or our chapter at the University of Maryland," the sorority said in a statement. "The processes by which Delta Gamma handles member discipline are confidential, but we have a team of women working with the chapter to take all appropriate action including protecting, educating, and supporting the chapter members in the aftermath of this event."
