Atlanta residents are upset over flyers featuring Bravo's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast with the slogan "Black Wives Matter."

The slogan, a pun on the "Black Lives Matter" movement, is causing uproar in Atlanta. However, the posters appear to be fake and unofficial, featuring women who are not full time cast members on the show.

According to Reality Tea, the flyers had been hanging at numerous shopping malls in Atlanta, many of which had been torn down by angry residents.

"These posters were not created by or are in any way affiliated with Bravo," a Bravo spokesperson told ABC.

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" has been on the air since 2008, and is one of the highest rated series on Bravo.
