It's a day of the week that ends with "y," so that means the ladies of The View have stepped into another controversy.

This one comes courtesy of Raven-Symoné, who declared during a discussion about names that she wasn't going to hire people based on what their parents named them.

During the round table, Raven — who bizarrely giggled hysterically throughout the segment — stated unequivocally that she would (does?) judge people based on their birth names.

She took it a step further, saying that even as a black woman, she wouldn't hire other (in this context, black) women if their names sounded a certain way, saying:

"I'm not about to hire you if your name is ‘Watermelondrea'. It's just not gonna happen!"

Um…

Yeah, we're with Whoopi Goldberg. She did NOT just say that, right??

Here's a clip of the remarks in question (below):

As to be expected, Twitter erupted immediately after Raven made the comments with tweets cascading against her, ranging from snarky to straight up disappointed and angry:

Who is Raven even hiring, indeed.
