Raven-Symoné Defends Remarks She Made On ‘The View’

Raven-Symone doesn’t see anything wrong with what she said on “The View” this week, and she’s not backing down from her remarks.

The “Empire” star came under fire this week when she defended a former Univision personality that said Michelle Obama looks like she could have been cast in “Planet of the Apes.” Picking up on the obvious offensiveness in that remark, Rosie Perez took the opportunity to explain to America that many Latinos have a problem with racism.

That’s when Raven cut into the conversation to question whether the now-fired host’s words were said in a racist manner (they were) while justifying his criticism of our first lady by stating that some people do look like animals. Needless to say she got dragged for the remark, but she hit Twitter to stand by her assessment that the TV personality wasn’t being racist.
