“Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” is undeniably one of the most violent reality series on TV, which, whether good or bad, is something that has drawn fans seeking that ratchet element to VH1 every Monday night. But it looks like the days of big brawls on “LHHA” are over because reports have revealed that there’s a “no fighting” rule for the cast.
According to TMZ, sources close to the show’s production team claim that major advertisers have been complaining about the violence on the show and that producers sent documents to the cast two weeks ago saying that they will no longer tolerate fighting on camera.
If the cast members do break the new rule and end up fighting, they will immediately be cut from the episode without pay and be suspended. The cast may even face termination for fighting.
Not surprisingly, the sources say that the cast is now resorting to yelling matches instead of actual boxing matches. And who could blame them considering they finally stand to make less money for being extremely volatile on TV.
Kudos to VH1 for wanting to cut down on the violence on TV. Although, we doubt it’ll make the show that much less dramatic.
