Raven Symone’s father, Christopher B. Pearman, is speaking out about his daughter’s recent comments on The View. As previously reported, the 29-year-old co-host has come under fire after she stated on Thursday’s show that she would discriminate against a job applicant with a “ghetto” name. The former Cosby Show star said:
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.
Raven was not only criticized on social media for her comments, but her father admitted that he wasn’t a fan of her statements. Sharing his point of view on Facebook, he writes:
To My Dear Friends, 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.
