Raven-Symoné has officially pissed off too many people.

A petition on change.org was initiated to spark ABC’s attention in removing Raven-Symoné from the hit show, The View. Their reasoning? “She has been spouting her ignorant and self hating spiel on The View for Long enough.”

Ouch!

It’s understandable why some viewers may be getting tired of seeing Symoné on their television screens. Most recently, she upset the public by saying she would never hire someone with a “ghetto” name. The ladies of the show were discussing a video that made fun of ethnic-sounding names when the former child star erupted with,

“I’m very discriminatory against the words like the ones they were saying in those names, I’m not going to hire you if your name is Watermelon-Andrea.”

While this petition and negative backlash may seem problematic for the former That’s So Raven star, she actually should not be worried! ABC has come to her defense against the petition. They responded by saying that the petition was originally sent to Barbara Walters, the show’s Executive Producer. They then added that they “love” Raven. Calling her “confident, genuine, and opinionated,” the network gave Symoné high praises despite her number of controversial comments in her short time on the show.

Over 120,000 people have signed the petition since Wednesday.  What do you think?
