THE FLORA-BAMA’S RESPONSE TO MTV SHOW FLORIBAMA SHORE:
For 53 years, THE Flora-Bama has been slinging drinks, tossing mullets, entertaining people from around the world, and hosting live music.
Hunkered down smack in the middle of the Florida/Alabama state line, THE Flora-Bama has survived a fire, several hurricanes, bad economies, and the worst oil spill in our nation’s history.
Yet, we’ve recently learned that MTV and Viacom are using our name and reputation to promote their latest “reality” series, after approaching us in 2013 about the same. We’ve asked them to stop. They’ve refused. As made clear by the CMT documentary that Viacom aired on THE Flora-Bama in 2014 to millions, there is only ONE Flora-Bama.
Maybe they will listen to you…
