Raven-Symoné is once more in hot water — this time — she bashed T.I. and JAY-Z and almost all active and successful rappers alive. T.I. clapped back in an epic fashion.
The controversial actress decided over the weekend to re-post a picture that was initially shared by DJ Khaled.
It featured T.I., P. Diddy, Beyoncé’s husband, Swizz Beatz, and Big Sean and many more.
The former The View co-host believes all the rich men in the photo have used rap music to degrade black people to make money.
The Cosby Show actress shared the post below which she rapidly deleted:
She replaced it with another post that said she stood by her comments but wanted to protect her young followers from the harsh comments.
Some people support her while others are bashing her.
One said: “She defended Michelle Obama being compared to an ape because “some people do look like animals. Who made Raven anybody’s moral conscience or told her it’s her place to judge anyone for anything? Live and let live is all I got to say. People need to stay in their lane. I’m sure she’s bought and enjoyed everyone in that picture’s music just like everyone else. It ain’t her job to go around tearing down other Black men. There are plenty of people out here doing that for us already, especially in this Trump era.”
Another shared: “Raven didn’t say anything wrong. I respect every man in the photo, but she bus right. She is entitled to her opinion. Damn let her have her opinion if that’s how she feels let it be I mean it’s dumb, but it’s HER opinion which she is entitled to. The fact that people are failing to take note that the tweet is from Speech (Arrested Development) is interesting.
Rap/ hip-hop is a form of self-expression. They are not perpetuating anything that isn’t real… they all rap about it cuz at one point in life they were about it. Luckily there’s a thing called growth, and that should be celebrated.. not shamed. If no one supported that type of music it wouldn’t sell, so whose fault is that?”
Is she right or wrong?
