The basketball star detailed the entire unfortunate incident in an Instagram post:

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.

So what did Jeb do to overcome that controversy? Why, he doubled down on it, of course!

Speaking today in McAllen, Texas, Jeb pointed out how it's Asian people that have the anchor baby problem here in America, and not those Mexicans we all thought he was talking about!
