VH1’s Sorority Sisters cast member April McRae and Rwanda “Joy” Hammond have been suspended from their organization until 2016 for their behavior displayed on the series. Alpha Kappa Sorority, Inc (AKA) went to their national website to list the two cast members suspensions which started 12/26/14 and will end 07/15/2016.
The series Sorority Sisters has sparked up controversy since its debut. Like most reality shows, this does not showcase the cast member in a positive light. Their over-to-top personalities prove that all stereotypes of greek organization are true which in reality isn’t the case. Since the show has aired many companies have pulled their advertisements from the airwaves, including Honda, Carmex, Hallmark, Crayola and more.
As a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., I don’t think I would EVER be apart of such series and as a sister I will not bash the members for their decision because they are human and have feelings as well, however, this doesn’t excuse their actions. Greeks, we have to remember and be mindful of what our founders sacrificed, survived, and surrendered for us to be where we are today. Theses organizations are bigger than us as an individual. Remember that.
Both members are no longer allowed to wear any sorority paraphernalia or attend any official sorority event during this time period.
