‘Sorority Sisters’ is a reality show which depicts the lives of female African American sorority members. Many of the sorority members on the show graduated from Atlanta based colleges. VH1 is now quickly pushing the season to an end after the constant backlash. Even before the show aired on Television people began discussing their disinterest for the show. Before the show was announced last summer and when a promotional video was released online, viewers started protesting. The backlash caused an online petition that drew more than 40,000 supporters who demanded the project to not be made. One of the organizers of the petition, Lawrence Ross, said the show reduces the worthy legacy of African-American sororities to a “perverse caricature.” Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority even suspended two cast members from separate chapters after the show aired and the organization has yet to give a public reason for the move. Many sponsors also pulled their ads from the show.

Vh1 is now airing the last three of 10 episodes which will air back-to-back. Vh1 said that they decided to air the episodes back to back in order to “satisfy viewer interest by bringing the cast’s stories full circle.” The channel said that viewers who responded on social media wanted to see the complete series. “Sorority Sisters The Dialogue,” was a special episode that aired last week and it featured the cast members of the show explaining why they joined the show and the controversy it provoked. “Sorority Sisters The Dialogue” aired to give viewers a better perspective but it didn’t work because people still began critizing the show which led to Vh1 ending the season. VH1 said in a statement that a decision on whether “Sorority Sisters” will continue has yet to be made.
