Friday on “The View,” Raven-Symoné stuck her foot in her mouth yet again when she confessed that she wouldn’t hire someone with a “ghetto” name.
Unless you’ve been immersed in reports about NASA’s recent discovery of water on Mars, and you missed Raven’s latest round with controversy, she said:
“Just to bring it back, can we take back “racist” and say “discriminatory,” because I think that’s a better word. And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in those names. I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”
As it turns out, there’s actually a Watermelondrea, Watermelondrea Jones to be exact, portrayed by Tré Melvin on YouTube. Ms. Jones heard Raven’s comments and she is not amused. She called out Raven on Twitter, saying: “lookin like a pheonix talking bout she ain’t gon hire me. out here lookin like a low battery. charge ur weave sis”.
