Actress Raven Symone has been making headlines as of late for the controversial remarks she’s made about black people and the #BlackLivesMatter movement, but “The View” star is learning fast that while her image makes for good television, in real life she’s burning bridges.
Apparently “Orange is the New Black” star Samira Wiley isn’t a fan and she made that pretty clear when Raven attempted to sit at her table at restaurant Sushi Roxx in New York.
Page Six writes:
Our amused spywitness says that Raven tried for some time to “befriend” Wiley, saying, “We should all sit together,” before Wiley shut her down, gesturing to the hostess to seat Raven and her group elsewhere.
“When the reservationist tried to move things around to seat them next to each other, Samira shook her head and made a ‘no’ motion that was very clear to the hostess. Raven didn’t sit with her or get a table,” says our source. “She left with her three friends without eating.”
Samira plays fan favorite Poussey Washington on the hit Netflix show.
