Raven-Symoné decided to take to Instagram with another rant back in January posting what most consider to be a iconic photo in a demeaning manner. The actress shared a photo on her Instagram from Jay- Z’s annual Roc Nation brunch. The photo showed, Jay Z, Swizz Beatz and T.I. captioning “group of so-called ‘successful’ Black men, who made money from perpetuating the worst Black stereotypes.” This is not the first statement that the star has made with some sort of negative or racial connotation. Atlanta’s King of the South T.I. posted his response to the That’s So Raven actress with an age-old adage, “Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.” Along with T.I’s displeasure with the shady comment, Trey Songz ended up in the comments to share his disagreement with her statement. “It’s so sad that she’s really a clown,” he said. On Tuesday, February 6th, the hosts of The Real discuss Raven-Symoné’s recent Instagram repost criticizing racial stereotypes, and her former Cheetah Girls co-star, co-host Adrienne Houghton, has some views of her own about judgment.
Adrienne, “And I think when I say that I feel that – every single one of us has things that we’re not proud of. We’ve all made mistakes in our lives, we’ve all had different upbringings – you don’t know what somebody’s past was, you don’t know why they did what they did. But what I do see in that photo is that they have evolved, like they said. And when we say they’ve evolved, and I disagree with that we don’t hear it in the music, I completely disagree. T.I. after going to jail had to make an entire album that had no curse words in it. And it was a great album.
The post has recently been deleted from Raven’s Instagram. However, she insists that she did not have a change of heart, but that it was because of the nasty comments. Adrienne’s message is one that we can all take into account when considering the way that we pass our judgement off on others.
