HOT MESS: Raven-Symone Discriminates Against "Ghetto" Names... But, What About Hers?

Say what now?

Raven-Symone caused an uproar on Twitter after she claimed that she’d discriminate against any job applicant with a “ghetto” name on an episode of The View on Thursday (Oct. 8).

During a conversation addressing a new study released in the Journal of Evolution and Human Behavior, The View talk show co-host admitted that she would definitely not consider any names that sounded too ethnic if she were an employer looking to hire.

“Just to bring it back, can we take back ‘racist’ and say ‘discriminatory,’ because I think that’s a better word,” she said during the show. 

“And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in the video. I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”

The 29-year-old former child star stunned her other co-hosts when she said that and then asked, “Is that mean?” 

In 2014, Symone faced similar backlash after she told Oprah Winfrey that she considered herself American, not African-American during OWN’s Where Are They Now? series.

Raven-Symone, just hush!
