A Change.org petition has already pulled the plug on the Oxygen reality show All My Babies’ Mamas, and now a new online petition is calling for the cancelation of Bravo’s forthcoming series Married to Medicine.
A group of Howard University College of Medicine students started the protest and say that the series, which follows the lives of prominent Black women doctors and doctor’s wives in the Atlanta, will “leave the stain of unprofessionalism and cattiness on the image of Black female doctors for years to come,” reports Madame Noire.
“For the sake of integrity and character of Black female physicians, we must ask that Bravo immediately remove and cancel Married to Medicine from its channel, website, and any other media,” it reads. “Black female physicians only compose 1% of the American workforce of physicians. Due to our small numbers, the depiction of Black female doctors in media, on any scale, highly affects the public’s view on the character of all future and current African-American female doctors.
