Raven-Symoné made yet another controversial comment and viewers up in arms.
Symone has lately been coming under fire for her perceived insensitive and ignorant comments on the The View, but her latest statements have now turned into a major headline.
During Wednesday’s After The View, while discussing the viral video of Officer Ben Fields attacking a Black teenage girl in a classroom at Spring Valley High, the co-host suggested that there are “two wrongs” in the situation. “The girl was told multiple times to get off the phone. There’s not right or reason for him to be doing this type of harm, that’s ridiculous,” she said. “But at the same time, you gotta follow the rules in school. First of all, why are there cellphones in school? This shouldn’t even be a problem to begin with, and he shouldn’t have been acting like that on top of it.”
Even co-host Michelle Collins appeared to be taken aback by Raven’s comments. “But Raven, this guy was known in that school … they called him the incredible hulk.”
Symoné went on to explain that the officer, who has since been fired, “was actually sued for false arrest, excessive force and battery in 2007 after a couple accused him of manhandling them. He has a record, and he’s still hired.”
But then the former That’s So Raven star added, “But at the same time, get off yo’ phone. You are in school, get off yo’ phone. What you doin’ on Instagram?”
Several took to social media to slam the actress, including NBA player, Isaiah Thomas.
