According to the Daily Mail, Raven, along with Michelle Collins and Candace Cameron-Bure will announce their departures from the show between now and mid-July. According to the site,
Symone has been one of the most controversial hosts of The View in the show’s history.
Fans have heavily criticized her uninformed opinions on the talk show and her constant reminder that she’s ‘not good with her words’. Viewers of the show even started a petition to have her removed from the show, which has 139,407 signatures to date.
‘Simply put, she just may be the worst hire in the history of this show,’ admitted the source.
