Mona Scott hasn’t found a pocket of life that she can’t turn into a reality show. The producer behind the LAHH franchise is currently working on a reality show that shine light on the world of African-American sororities. Mona is about to run into an issue from the major sororities as they don’t want their story told by Scott.
Hip Hop Wired has reported that The Sorority Sisters trailer which highlighted members of the Black Greek Letter Organizations of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta and Sigma Gamma Rho has been removed from online streaming services due to the grumblings of Black Greeks.
A MoveOn.org petition was enacted by Reynoir Lewis and addressed to Viacom’s president and CEO Phillipe Dauman and President Barack Obama.
The petition reads:
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 has an aim of 7, 500 signatures and has already amassed nearly 6,000 thus far.
Scott-Young has yet to respond to the fervor around the show nor is their word from Viacom the show has been canned. It is assumed that Sorority Sisters was slated to air on one of Viacom’s media properties.
