Raven-Symone immediately came under fire by her fellow co-hosts on “The View” Friday when she admitted to being “discriminatory” about certain names.
“Can we take back racist and say discriminatory? Because I think thats a better word,” she said. “And I’m very discriminatory against the words like the ones they were saying in those names. I’m not going to hire you if your name is Watermelon-Andrea. That’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”
The entire panel seemed confused, if not offended, by her statement and one of the women pushed back by arguing people don’t choose their names.
Twitter was entirely unforgiving.
