Jacque Reid talks to ‘Divine 9’ author Lawrence Ross and member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. about the backlash of ‘Sorority Sisters’ and his involvement with the boycott of advertisers who are supporting the show by not pulling their ads.

“Right now we ahve about 16 advertisers that are gone and we’re looking for more. Ava (Duvernay) was the first person to actually respond to remove the ‘Selma’ ads from the show. After that we had advertisers like Honda and Cricket drop off,” Ross said. “You have to look at the underbelly. VH1 has already made their monetary involvement.”
