As if VH1 canceling ‘Sorority Sisters’ wasn’t enough, five members of Delta Sigma Theta have been permanently expelled from their chapters due to their participation in the show. Their suspension comes after Alpha Kappa Alpha temporarily suspended two of their own members.
The expelled DST members are:
Lydia Mitchell and Priyanka Banks from Alabama State University, Montgomery, AL
MeToya Monroe, State University of West Georgia, Carrollton
Adrene Ashford from Marietta
Shanna McCormick from Nashville
Unsurprisingly, their date of expulsion is listed as January 13th — the day VH1 decided to cancel the show and air all remaining episodes on the following Friday.
Another interesting tidbit is that VH1 has removed nearly every single trace of Sorority Sisters from their website. It’s as if the show never existed in the first place.
In case you were wondering what expulsion from the organization consists of, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has a lengthy explanation on their website.
