Petitioners call for MTM to be cancelled
A petition was opened and supported by 3,131 supporters who were calling for Bravo to cancel the original MTM series, and remove all promotions.
Those involved in the Change petition said they felt the portrayal of Black female doctors in the media was affecting the public’s view.
The petition stated:
Bravo’s “Married to Medicine” not only exploits the 6 lives of its Black female cast members, but, through its advertisements and commercials, heavily associates Black females in medicine with materialism, “cat fights”, and unprofessionalism.
The petition, which began 8 years ago, is now closed.
