That loud thud you heard was Twitter lowering the hammer on the newest — and they say the foulest, most uncouth and trashiest — reality show to disgrace our television sets, “New Atlanta.”
Based on social media respondents, the creators of “New Atlanta” should be cited for airwave pollution for using TV audiences’ minds as landfills to dump their trashy concepts of entertainment.
Mona Scott Young, who created the popular “Love and Hip Hop” franchise, conceptualized this idea to illuminate the lives and journey of upwardly mobile ATL-iens as they circumnavigate obstacles, hurdles and landmines to manifest their aspirations.
There is a small number of cast members for such a show. A couple of stars dropped out of the show, one for reportedly growing wary of producers trying to manipulate what can be done and whom he could date, leading that person to be fearful of compromising the integrity of his brand and business. And, based on the reviews of the show, he might be the biggest winner out of this ordeal.
Take a look at the Twitter reactions from the debut episode of “New Atlanta.”
The #NewAtlanta review: bad weaves, bad skin, bad clothes, & bad acting. Step. it. up.
