Despite major backlash from Black Greeks across the nation, VH1 has no plans of cancelling their new hit reality show “Sorority Sisters”.
Seems like the Black Greeks were outnumbered by a much larger population of GDI’s who are into the new show that many feel slanders the reputation of Black Greek life.
In an emailed statement, VH1 said that the premier was seen by 1.3 million people and it was the number one non-sports cable program in that time period among women ages 18 to 49.
“There are currently no plans to change the series and it seems to be connecting with its audience,” the network said through a spokeswoman.
“Due to the confidential nature of our agreements with our advertising partners, we never speak to specifics about clients and their media plans,” she added. “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.”
The petition calling on VH1 to dump “Sorority Sisters” has garnered more than 67,000 signatures.
The show’s second episode is scheduled to air Monday.
