Growing up Greek on MTV is Trailer Trash

The MTV reality show on the life of Greek Americans in Tarpon Springs has raised strong opposition in the ranks of the Greek American Community
.“Growing Up Greek” is being accused by many expatriates as showing a shallow, overpopularized and defamatory side of the Greek American Community.

Libel or simple satire? Embarrassing approach or representation of reality? In any case, MTV's reality show Growing Up Greek has garnered the attention of the Greeks in the US before it has even gone live! The "extreme" character and the parallels with the controversial - but popular - Jersey Shore, have led to an electronic signature collection for the cancellation of the project! On their part, supporters believe that it showsa side of Greek-American Diaspora and advise the public to see it.
