According to Gossip Cop, head honchos for “The View” plan to continue to stand behind Raven.
Gossip Cop writes:
The Change.org petition that seeks to remove Symone from the talk show argues that she’s been “spouting her ignorant and self hating spiel on ‘The View’ for long enough.” The letter also says, “The final straw was her comment about the recent viral video of the school police officer assaulting the student, where [Symone] said ‘get off your phone in school then.’” Finally, the petition insists that African-Americans “need strong black role models in prominent positions on television and Symone cannot provide that.”
Despite the large number of people who’ve signed the petition, Gossip Cop is assured by a rep for “The View” that Symone is not in any danger of losing her job. The show’s rep exclusively tells us, “We love Raven. She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel.”
