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.
"I'm not about to hire you if your name is ‘Watermelondrea'. It's just not gonna happen!"
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:
That Raven-Symoné used "Watermelonisha" as an example of a "black name" shows you how deep the internalized racism and self-hatred goes.

Raven seems to see no irony in supporting discrimination against non-traditional names while having a non traditional name AND appearance.

You would think a multiracial lesbian would be as liberal as they come but Raven is pretty much a white woman from 1923 Alabama.
