Petition to Remove Raven Symone from ‘The View’ Surges to 97K+ Supporters
An online petition to remove co-host Raven Symone from “The View” has gotten over 97,000 supporters since it started this week. It got 50,000 supporters in one day.
The petition on Change.org reads:
“Raven Symone has been spouting her ignorant and self hating spiel on the view for Long enough, from stating that she wouldn’t hire somebody for having a ghetto name, to openly complaining about reverse racism, the final straw was her comment about the recent viral video of the school police officer assaulting the student, where Raven Symone said “get off your phone in school then”. African Americans and black people around the diaspora need a voice representative of their views and not a voice representative of what white people want us to say. We need strong black role models in prominent positions on television and Raven Symone cannot provide that. That is why I ask that we petition to remove her from The View.”
Personally, this is a tough place for ABC and Barbara Walters. On one hand, Raven does garner some publicity on the show for her asinine commentary and personality. One the other, it’s asinine.
Raven Symone is universally disliked from the left and right frequently after she opens her mouth.
UPDATE: 100,000+ supporters and counting…
