Black Fraternities & Sororities Band Together To Shut Down Mona Scott-Young's Latest Project

 | By Brennan Williams  
For years, Mona Scott-Young has been behind the scenes effortlessly crafting the careers of Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott and 50 Cent, to name a few.
And in recent years, through her Momami Entertainment company, she has teamed with VH1 for various franchises including 'Love and Hip Hop,' which uncovers the lives of the women behind some of the most famous rap stars out.
However the producer’s latest developing project, “Sorority Sisters,” has drawn a widespread backlash amongst black fraternities due to its misrepresentation of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta and Sigma Gamma Rho members highlighted in the show’s trailer, which has since been removed from the web due to the uproar.
Following the negative reaction to the “Sorority Sisters” preview clip, Reynoir Lewis launched a MoveOn.Org petition in an effort to axe the series from airing on television:

  1. I watched the show last night to see what it was going to be about. When I heard my sorority's name, it really got my attention. I will never watch it again and hope others will not watch it either. It should be removed from TV.
