For some time now, Mona has been developing a project, Sorority Sisters, to bring a behind-the-scenes look of black sororities to reality TV. Think College Hill, but with a Love & Hip Hop flare. However, the producer has received widespread backlash amongst black fraternities due to its not-so-pleasant representation of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho members in the trailer, which has been removed from the interwebs due to overwhelming disfavor.
As a matter of fact, the dislike of the show grew so much that a petition was created by Reynoir Lewis to put a stop to the show from airing on TV!
“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,” the petition reads.
To date, over 20,000 people have signed the petition, only 5,000 short of its goal.
