The power of Twitter is strong. Especially when people band together to complain about a television show that’s not to their liking and deemed unacceptable. On Monday, VH1 premiered its newest reality-TV show, Sorority Sisters, and the reception didn’t go too well at all.

Sorority Sisters, in the same vein as Love & Hip Hop and Basketball Wives, is filled with everything people hate about reality television, but with the addition of black Greek organizations. Many feel that the show is portraying black Greek organizations in a negative light, and they took to social media to voice their disapproval.

Apparently that disapproval didn’t go unnoticed. Companies like Carmex, Hallmark, Honda and Crayola have all pulled their ads from the network that air during episodes of Sorority Sisters.
