(The Washington Post) – The premiere of VH1′s controversial new reality show “Sorority Sisters” was met with an overwhelmingly negative reaction on Twitter. Now, after pressure from the show’s critics, who say it portrays black Greek life in a negative light, some advertisers are reconsidering airing ads on the network.
Carmex announced that it would pull its ads from the network until VH1 cancels the program.
.@rolandsmartin Yes. We’ll be pulling our ads from VH1 until the program is pulled in order to join our voice with many of our customers.
