Is Raven-Symoné's Latest Controversy The Final Straw? Thousands Have Signed A Petition To Remove Her From The View!
She had it coming…
Raven-Symoné may be one of the more famous hosts of The View, but recently it seems like she's being controversial just for the sake of causing arguments.
First she openly criticized Caitlyn Jenner's transition, then she said she wouldn't hire a fellow black person with a "ghetto" name, and as you may have heard, she just blamed the Spring Valley High student who got assaulted by a school resource officer.
Well, it seems as though fans of the ABC daytime talk show are fed up with her bouts of trollery, because over 24,000 people have signed a Change.org petition to remove her from the panel!
We'd hate to agree, but we're just not sure why Raven keeps failing to support her community when she has such a public platform to potentially do good.
Do U think ABC will be getting rid of Raven anytime soon??

On Monday, it was revealed that The View host has called it quits with her girlfriend AzMarie Livingston. How sad!
In case you forgot, the TV personality and her former flame first started dating back in 2012 and the two kept an extremely low profile during their relationship! Which makes sense, since the 29-year-old previously told Oprah Winfrey that she didn't want to be defined by her romantic life.
Ann Coulter Leaves Raven-Symoné Speechless On The View After Calling The Host Out About Her 'Watermelondrea' Comment! Watch HERE!
This is BRUTAL for Raven-Symoné.
Ann Coulter guested on The View on Friday, and the conversation surrounding the conservative pundit's segment went down pretty much exactly how you'd expect: it was political, it was heated, and it involved quite a bit of the hosts and guest talking over each other.
Co-host Ana Navarro called out Ann on her troubling anti-immigration views, as well as her praise for Donald Trump, but the real highlight of the segment came a couple minutes in, when Raven jumped into the fray.
The former child star asked Coulter a question about the golden rule — that is, why Ann doesn't treat others the way she'd like to be treated — while accusing the political pundit of "mud-slinging" against groups of people.
In response, the Adios America author put Raven on BLAST by bringing up her offensive comments on black women's names… well, you'll just have to watch (above) because Oh. Em. Gee.
That wasn't slinging mud, it was bringing the heat!
What did U think about Coulter's interview??
Raven-Symoné Attempts To Apologize For Her Comments About 'Ghetto Names' & Reveals She Was HACKED All At The Same Time! HUH?!
ICYMI: Initially, Miz Symoné quipped during the round table with her co-hosts that she wouldn't hire other (in this context, black) women if their names sounded a certain way, saying:
"And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in the video. I'm not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It's just not going to happen. I'm not going to hire you."
However, she's since posted:
