Blogger Erin Harper has launched a petition to boycott VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ for dealing digital crack and telling extremely dangerous stories. According the appeal, “VH1 has chosen to give us yet another beautifully blinged jewel of commercial exploitation.”
Early this year, a similar campaign to stop Basketball Wives spread across the internet for its negative depiction of women and fights. Though It did not diminish the viewership, it brought attention to the perspective of the program. While groups aim to stop these reality television shows, a larger mass of people continue to tune in each week to consume the entertainment.
Harper’s petition has gained the signatures of 524 supporters versus the attention of over three million viewers of last week’s episode.
