Mona Scott-Young has created an empire based on reality television. She is the creator of the Love & HipHop series that has extended from New York to Atlanta, Los Angeles and now in the works Miami. The show is supposed to follow people in the music industry who are trying to balance their lives and their careers. To keep up the ratings, fights and drama were added to the mix.
Mona is back at it with a reality show following a number of women from the sororities of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Sigma Gamma Ro and Zeta Phi Beta. The Greeks however are not happy with the show.
A petition has been started by Reynoir Lewis launched a petition to remove the show from being televised.
Stop the spread of ignorance and stereotyping of our beloved Black Greek letter organizations. Our founders amongst EVERY organization worked extremely hard to allow us to unite and flourish not only on college campuses, but as a people well beyond our college days, and Mona Scott-Young now threatens to demolish those aims and goals we all abide by. If this show airs, we will boycott any and all advertisers affiliated with the show through commercial advertising, product placement and/or location use.
*I, Reynoir Lewis, will be personally delivering these signatures to the President Philippe Dauman and the Executive Chairman Sumner M. Redstone.* Thank you for your support.
The petition has gotten over 42,000 signatures and continues to grow. Greeks from all over are speaking out against the show since it aired Monday night. They are saying it is a misrepresentation of what they stand for. They not only want to boycott the show, but boycott the sponsors as well.
