If 130,000 people got their way, Raven-Symoné’s days of hosting The View would be coming to a close. Last week, a petition was launched on Change.org to have the controversial talent removed from the ABC morning show.

Che Scott-Heron, 29, the woman behind the initiative, explained on the website why she feels Raven needs to go.

“Raven Symone has been spouting her ignorant and self hating spiel on the view for Long enough, from stating that she wouldn’t hire somebody for having a ghetto name, to openly complaining about reverse racism, the final straw was her comment about the recent viral video of the school police officer assaulting the student, where Raven Symone said ‘get off your phone in school then’. African Americans and black people around the diaspora need a voice representative of their views and not a voice representative of what white people want us to say. We need strong black rolemodels in prominent positions on television an Raven Symone cannot provide that. That is why I ask that we petition to remove her from The View.”

Over 130,500 people signed the petition, prompting ABC to respond with a big fat “Bye, Felicia” statement that goes a little something like this: “We love Raven. She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel.” In other words, “Raven is bat sh*t crazy which is good for ratings. And since you all keep talking about her, we’re never getting rid of her.”
