Raven Symone started her co-hosting position with “The View” earlier this year and is known as the host to leave the audience with something to talk about. Unfortunately, many of those times Raven express herself fans do not agree with her. Fans of ‘The View’ are fed up with Raven and started a petition to have her her removed from the show.

The petition already has 129,000 signature and reads:

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, the final straw was her comment about the recent viral video of the school police officer assaulting the student, where Raven Symone said “get off your phone in school then”. 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 rolemodels in prominent positions on television an Raven Symone cannot provide that. That is why I ask that we petition to remove her from The View.

ABC got word of the petition and explained why they are sticking with Raven:

“We love Raven. She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel.”
