Growing Up Greek

By: Catherine Kouretsos

 

MTV will be airing a 30 minute special on December 3 called “Growing Up Greek.” It will highlight a group of young Greek people and how they are growing up in the heavily Greek influenced town of Tarpon Springs, Florida.

The show’s 55-second “sneak peak” has come under fire by the Greek community. They’re calling it a “misrepresentation” of the culture and have raised a petition to have it cancelled.

One of the stars of the show, Barbie Perkins, says she’s being positive for the show and is proud of it.
