TORONTO, April 14 (UPI) -- Officials at Toronto's Humber College said they had Facebook take down a page detailing sexual encounters among students after a post implied a woman was raped.

"Humber Epic Hookup Fails" was a Facebook page, operated anonymously, with a moderator posting tales from personal messages sent to the page.

Two women who attend the college reported a post to school authorities that described a man bringing home an extremely drunken woman and having sex with her. When the man's roommate gets home and finds the two having sex, he joins in and receives oral sex with "no verbal consent necessary."

The woman later vomits on the floor and they kick the woman out of the house naked and leave her passed out in the driveway, the (Toronto) Globe and Mail said Sunday.

"Some of [the posts] were not too bad but the one post in particular condoned rape culture," said Shealagh Palangio, one of the students who reported the page. "And it was really insulting and not funny at all, so we felt the need to report that."

School officials condemned the incident and contacted Facebook to have the page removed.

"Each person has also been very quick to point out that the activity was not representative of the student body of Humber at large, that it was offensive to our value system," Humber Vice President John Mason said. "The event described describes a non-consensual, criminal act and is completely inappropriate to the Humber community."
