Actress Raven-Symone caught flak for a comment about Hip Hop artists, including T.I.,
that she co-signed over the weekend.
Symone reposted a tweet by Arrested Development’s Speech criticizing JAY-Z, Swizz Beatz, T.I.
and the other rappers who posed in a Grammy weekend photo that previously went viral.
In her caption to the repost, the former The View co-host appeared to approve of Speech’s criticism.
In his comment, Speech blasted the rappers for profiting off “perpetuating the worst Black stereotypes.”
Symone has since deleted the repost and offered the following explanation for the deletion:
“Deleted my post because the comments were not something I want my underage followers
looking at. I’m not deleting because I don’t believe in what I said.”
