THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN: SAY NO TO SORORITY SISTERS.


Many were outraged when there were reports of VH1 and Mona Scott teaming together again to produce yet another show. Sadly the once highly respected music exec has turned into the Grinch who stole the black communities dignity. The Black Greek Organizations got together to protest the show. Loud chants and fellow Greek members picketing their signs in front of the VH1 office in NYC. #SAYNOTOMONASCOTT #VH1YOUKNOWBETTER #RESPECTOURSISTERS. Sadly VH1 does not plan on cancelling the show. Sorority Sisters ratings are doing very well, over 1.3 million people took the time to watch this mess and only 76,000 people signed a petition to shut the show down. The Black Greeks Organizations concerns have not fallen on deaf ears, because the NBA has decided to pull all of the Sorority Sisters advertisements from their rotation.

VH1 released a statement

There are currently no plans to change the series and it seems to be connecting with its audience….Due to the confidential nature of our agreements with our advertising partners, we never speak to specifics about clients and their media plans…But we do enjoy successful, long-term partnerships with our advertisers and are happy to honor any requests to move spots to other parts of our schedule.10885208_10152775993723241_7920874020348497527_n
