Rolling Stone Clarifies Its Apology on UVA Rape Story

Sunday, 07 Dec 2014 07:48 PM

Rolling Stone has clarified its apology over a story that had reported a female student was gang-raped at a University of Virginia fraternity — telling readers the mistakes were the magazine's fault, not the alleged victim's.

The original note to readers, issued Friday, said its trust in the alleged victim, Jackie, was misplaced. The updated note removes that line, which struck some critics as blaming the victim.

The updated message from Rolling Stone adds some details calling into question its original story. Rolling Stone notes that the fraternity has denied the assault, and said there was no event there on the night Jackie alleged she was raped. And the magazine says that Jackie is now unsure that the man who lured into a room to be raped was a member of the fraternity.
