Petition Closed

You care about West Virginia, and you care about our kids.

The MTV television show "Buckwild" cares about neither. It presents an ugly, ignorant, scripted "reality show" portrayal of West Virginia. For every effort we in West Virginia make to educate our kids, stand up for our workers, and attract new visitors and businesses to our state, this television program works ten-fold against us. The show is dishonest and grotesque.

Please take a moment to sign this petition and send our message to MTV President Stephen Friedman and John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile, one of Buckwild's sponsors.

If you have any doubt, please watch the two-minute trailer below:
