Actress and unfortunate View co-host, Raven Symone has once again shown us she has no love for self or the black race committing the ultimate gaffe on The View only this time; the irony is all too blatant! Could it be the childhood star lived a life too sheltered?
Perhaps, however, Raven tries hard to present herself as an open-minded, forward-thinking adult but it’s maturity and life experience that’s lacking.
She’s clearly not a good fit for The View even though producers give her free-rein to be her colorful self; can they afford to continue coddling someone this uniformed?
Whoopi and the other co-hosts were equally appalled and she still didn’t seem to understand why.
Her father decided to respond to the backlash posting on Facebook:
To My Dear Friends,
There has been much talk today about my daughters comments on her show The View. People have been hitting me up all night questioning me about her remarks. Let me say this……I haven’t managed Ravens career in over 10 years. This woman is grown, has her own management team, has her own opinions, right or wrong, and is responsible for her own words and actions. A woman wrote to me tonight and said she couldn’t support my book because of the words of my daughter. What she fails to realize is that my book is about teaching your child to believe and achieve. Raven has achieved incredible success, and this cannot be denied!
Children grow up and become influenced by many things, situations and people. I certainly don’t agree with what she said….but she is damn near thirty years old. She’s a grown ass woman making grown ass mistakes. We all have been guilty of this.
I did my best as her father, mentor and career manager. I believe I did a Wonderful job. Aside from this inexcusable gaffe, her 29 years in the entertainment industry has been quite successful, for there have been only an Elite Few Child Stars to last this long and have little to no controversy. For this, I am Very Proud!
Raven is a really Beautiful, Sweethearted, Human Being.I should know. Her Mother and I Love her Very much and will always support her and have her back. Even if sometimes……….she says some dumb S#%T!
To see Raven and our families story go to: Dream So Big
He’s right, that was some dumb s#%T and “That’s so Raven!”
