“The View” co-host Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman known simply as Raven-Symoné was once a beloved chlid star who played Olivia Hanks on “The Cosby Show” and later Galleria Garibaldi in “The Cheetah Girls” and she had her own eponymous show on Disney, “That’s So Raven.” We loved her, lest we forget she was always in character. Now that the true character is seen daily on the ABC talk show, my sisters on Facebook and other social media platforms shrug their shoulders, cringing about what she’ll say next. Today, Raven-Symoné took aim at Black women who in her eyes have been plagued with Black, i.e. “ghetto sounding” names. She took it to the extreme and used Watermelondrea as an example of a person whom she wouldn’t consider hiring.


Twitter had no mercy. Check out the hilarious tweets.
