I have a serious like/dislike relationship with Raven-Symoné. I love her for staying true to who she is and always speaking her mind. But, I dislike her for some of the things she says while doing so.
Raven-Symoné recently did a short stint as a co-host on “The View” and while she was there some of her commentary put her back in the crock pot and left her social media pages in shambles.
Let’s begin with Raven’s comments regarding the firing of Univision host, Rodner Figueroa, who said First Lady Michelle Obama looked like a “Planet of the Apes cast member.”

Raven said she doesn’t believe he’s a racist. She went on to add some people do resemble animals. For the record… she thinks she looks like a bird.
Now, let’s move on to the day Raven-Symoné had to clap back at Beyonce‘s Beyhive, who swooped down on her for referring to Lil Kim as the “Queen Bee.” (The Beyhive also shut down Raven’s Instagram page. But, she was able to get it back.)
Lastly, Raven ruffled a few feathers with her stance on the use of the “N word.” See her comments about that below.
Raven-Symoné sat down with E! to discuss her eventful week and she took a moment to clarify many of her controversial remarks.
Again, I love Raven for never shying away from speaking her truth. Again, sometimes…it’s a hard pill to swallow.
