According to a gossip website, Raven-Symoné has been demoted on ABC’s daytime program, The View. The following is an excerpt from MediaTakeOut’s Sunday morning report:
“We told y’all that Raven was about to get FIRED from The View. According to our sources, Raven has been DEMOTED – from co-host to correspondent. They even removed her from The View’s home page. You can now find her on ANOTHER PAGE, with other “correspondents” of the show – including Padma Lakshmi and Sherri Shepherd.”
We checked ABC’s website to confirm the authenticity of this report. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you sip your tea, the report is bogus. Not only is Raven a co-host on the show, she’s still listed as one on the website, although her image is in a row with the correspondents mentioned by MTO, Padma Lakshmi and Sherri Shepherd.
Monday morning, the former Cosby child star also let it be known she was gainfully employed by posting this image and caption on Instagram:

Raven has been under fire since joining The View for making outrageous statements. Most recently, she said she would never hire someone with a Black name like “Watermelondrea.” As you can imagine, that didn’t sit well with Black Twitter.
