Raven-Symone Defends Fired Host Rodner Figueroa: ‘Some People Look Like Animals’ (VIDEO)

Raven-Symone inexplicably defended sacked Univision host Rodner Figueroa on The View on Monday. Figueroa was fired last week after saying that First Lady Michelle Obama looked like she was on the cast of Planet of the Apes.

Raven-Symone questioned if Figueroa was really being racist because “some people look like animals.”

She said: “Michelle, don’t fire me from this right now, but some people look like animals. Is that rude? I look like a bird! So can I be mad if somebody calls me Toucan Sam?”

Oh dear.

I don’t think Raven-Symone fully understands what being offensive and racist is. How disappointing.
