It seems like Raven Symone's dad would like one of the chairs on ABC's The View.
Symone’s father, Christopher B. Pearman, posted a lengthy open letter to Facebook about his daughter’s performance on The View.
“There has been much talk today about my daughters comments on her show The View. People have been hitting me up all night questioning me about her remarks,” he wrote. “Children grow up and become influenced by many things, situations and people. I certainly don't agree with what she said.... but she is damn near thirty years old. She's a grown ass woman making grown ass mistakes. We all have been guilty of this.”
Pearman is likely referring to Symone’s comments about not hiring people with uncommon names.
“Can we take back ‘racist’ and say ‘discriminatory? Because I think that’s a better word," she said. "That’s a better word. And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in those names. I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not gonna happen. I’m not gonna hire you.”
“Raven is a really Beautiful, Sweethearted, Human Being.I should know. Her Mother and I Love her Very much and will always support her and have her back,” he added. “Even if sometimes..........she says some dumb S#%T!”
