ABC Responds To Petition To Remove Raven-Symone From 'The View'

ABC is responding to a petition to remove Raven-Symone from 'The View' by saying: "We Love Raven"

"She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel," the network says in a statement in defense of her.

The petition to remove Raven-Symone, citing "ignorant and self hating spiel", has over 130,000 signatures.

"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," reads the petition.

"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 role models in prominent positions on televisions and Raven-Symone cannot provide that."

The petition comes after the actress voiced her opinion on the Spring Valley High School assault, which saw a police officer took extreme measures to deal with a student who refused to get off her cell phone.

"The girl was told multiple times to get off the phone," Raven-Symone said on the daytime talk show. "There's no right or reason for him to be doing this type of harm that's ridiculous 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."
