Raven-Symoné flips out on “The View,” again.

On Thursday, Feb. 25, the Cosby star turned talk show co-host voiced her odd election confession, announcing that she’ll be moving to Canada, should “any Republican gets nominated” for president. Needles to say, the controversial commentator forgot a few minor details, one being she’s not a Canadian citizen.

“I already have my ticket,” Raven-Symoné. “No, I literally bought my ticket. I swear,” she added. Even after co-host Joy Behar and Candace Cameron Bure chimed in, saying she needs a visa to work in Canada.

Needless to say, the 30-year-old may get a healthy helping of reality sooner than later, as she appeared to miss the bigger picture entirely: a Republican candidate will have to receive the party’s nomination to run against the Democratic candidate and any third-party or independent candidates in November.

Not to our surprise, Twitter users criticized Symoné for her comments, saying she lacks an understanding of how the election process works. “Someone needs to start writing her lines. Her ignorance on the political process is sad. But, it’s a good laugh!” wrote one user. “Raven a Republican will be nominated no matter what, you have no idea what your saying, so I want to say goodbye ?, ?,,” added another.

Of course, this isn’t the first time the former child star has caused a huge splash on social media. In October, she stated that she would never hire someone who had a “ghetto” name such as “Watermelondrea.” It just so happens “Watermelondrea” was alive and well and went in on the star via Twitter. Other users expressed frustration, claiming that Symoné was discriminating based on a name, when she herself carries an unorthodox title.

A year earlier, the Cheetah Girl came under fire for confessing to Oprah that she does not identify as African-American or want to be classified as gay. “I don’t want be labeled gay,” she said. “I want to be labeled a human who loves humans. I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American.”

And while the Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century may not identify with well … just about anyone, she can find solace in the fact that a resident on the Canadian island of Cape Breton has created a website to lure disgruntled Americans like herself: “We welcome all, no matter who you support, be it Democrat, Republican or Donald Trump.”
