Raven-Symone Defends TV Host Who Compared Michelle Obama to Apes

Raven-Symone came out in defense of Rodner Figueroa former host of Univision, who was fired last week for making an insensitive comment about the First Lady Michelle Obama. Figueroa in a segment on the show, said, “Michelle Obama looked like she’s from the cast of the Planet of the Apes.”

I watched the segment of the View’s “Hot Topics,” and I was shocked that Raven-Symone tried to defend the host for his rude comments. Is Raven a little detached from reality? Rosie Perez co-host of the View chimed in and stated, “A lot of Latin people recognize the fact that we do have African blood in us. A lot of them do not want to recognize that fact, and that’s where this stems from,” she said on Monday’s show. “There is a secret in the Latin community, specifically the Caribbean, South American, Central American, Latin community, that they are very racist,” she added. “They never want to be in the same group as black people. And it’s sad. It’s very, very sad. And he did say Michelle Obama looks like a cast member of the Planet of the Apes.”

After that, you would think Ms. Raven would have taken off her cape and let it be but she doesn’t. She goes on to say “Michelle, don’t fire me from this right now, but some people look like animals. Is that rude? I look like a bird! So can I be mad if somebody calls me Toucan Sam?” No Raven you should be fired for trying to defend stupidity. Someone in her camp needs to tell her to keep quiet on issues that are important to black people. I’m sure she means well at the same time she is making a spectacle of herself.
