Ohio State band member says she LIKED her sexually explicit name 'Joobs' as she comes to the defense of fired band leader

A former Ohio State University band member has slammed an investigation report which used her sexually-explicit nickname 'Joobs' as an example of sexual harassment on campus.

Alexandra Clark said the name, which means 'Jew with large breasts', was not offensive and the university failed to consult her before claiming it was.

'You turned a lighthearted joke and rookie name given to me by my row mates with my full consent into something shameful,' Clark wrote in a letter to university president, Michael Drake.

'In my three years with the band, far from encountering a sexualized and hostile environment, I made some of the best friends I'll ever have.'

 

The letter is published in full on the The Buckeye Battle Crywebsite.

Clark, a member of the band's C-Row from 2009 to 2011, also claimed investigators 'showed a 'complete lack of respect for the privacy and dignity of the band members'.

'The Ohio State University has decided, without ever informing me, to make this public to the entire world, even though they couldn't even spell it correctly,' Clark, who uses the Twitter handle @Joobilicious, wrote in her scathing letter.

Clark also defended her band director, Waters, saying he always fostered mature dialogue in the band community and made it clear that bad behavior would result in expulsion.
