Current controversial producer of reality television, Mona Scott Young, has become the new leader of urban reality television programming. In collaboration with her media company Monami Entertainment company, and VH1, Mona has brought us the ever famous “Love and Hip Hop,” that gives us first hand accounts of the personal and love lives of yesterday’s and today’s urban artists.
Ever the monumental music mogul, Scott is partially responsible for careers such as 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliot, but she’s now under fire about her new project: “Sorority Sisters.”
The proposed show allegedly displayed a poor representation of Black Greek Letter sororities, including Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta and Sigma Gamma Rho. The trailer’s impact hit so hard that it mysteriously disappeared from the web shortly after it’s release.
The following reaction to the trailer has taken action. A petition, proposed by Reynoir Lewis called for a cease of any and every projection of stereotypical content regarding Black Greek Letter organizations, especially Mona’s developing show. Read a portion of the petition below:
“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.”
