Can “The View” go a week without saying something stupid? They offended nurses. They needed Ben Carson and Rick Santorum to mansplain reality and facts to them, and Carly Fiorina just to embarrass them. Finally, Raven Symone says she won’t hire someone…who has a name like Raven Symoné and looks like Raven Symoné. Yes for realzies.
Raven Symoné threw a giant rock from inside her glass house, and it’s bouncing back in her face — because her refusal to hire people with “black” names has some people calling for her to be fired.
“The View” co-host admitted on Thursday she discriminates when it comes to people with names like “Watermelondrea” … and would not hire someone with such a unique name. Of course, that comment came from a black woman named Raven … while she was rocking a hot pink mohawk.
The irony is not lost on ‘View’ fans, many of whom are blasting Raven on social media and even calling for her to be replaced … by Rachel Dolezal.
Now, of course I’m not offended by Raven’s comments here. They’re benign and relatively harmless. But, live by SJWs rules, die by SJWs rules. Demonize people for saying things with which you disagree? Eventually it all comes around.
When it does, it can be quite triggering, I have no doubt.
On another note, what she said was still hilarious and one of the Top 5 #SelfAwarenessFails of all time.
