Jenn Sterger responsible for Oregon ‘no means no’ chant
Little-known fact about Jenn Sterger — she dabbles in stand-up comedy. The former face of the Florida State fan base is an aspiring comedian, and some of her material apparently went viral last week in the form of a cruel rape joke directed toward Jameis Winston.
After Oregon defeated FSU in the Rose Bowl, a bunch of Ducks players chanted “no means no” in the same tone as the Seminoles’ famous war chant. Last week, TMZ reported that the chant originated from a comedy show and that Sterger had written the joke.
During an appearance on Bert Kreischer’s podcast on Tuesday, Sterger confirmed that she wrote the joke for comedian Brad Williams.
“Brad’s like my comedy godfather … He’d asked me to write some roast jokes for him and I said, ‘Yeah, sure, I love being mean.'” Sterger explained, as transcribed by College Spun. “And I wrote a bunch of jokes, they crushed, and I mean, I ripped both teams to shreds, and their respective rivals. I mean, the Gators were destroyed. But the joke that killed the hardest, for Oregon, was Brad said, ‘Hey guys, just have a great time in Hollywood, and remember ‘Noooo means noooo!’”

Sterger went on to say that she doesn’t feel bad about the chant because she considers it more of a PSA. Given how the university reacted to it, it’s safe to say school officials disagree.
