|Calls for a cannon fire plague entertainer Raven-Symone.|
One too many slips now has the former child star facing a backlash.
Raven-Symone (Pearman) started co-hosting The View in April. She was formally introduced to the program during the Fall season. Now six months in, many fans of the daytime talk show are calling for her removal.
In the wake of Officer Slam, the entertainer said the cop went out of line when did his take down of the teen. However, she slammed the teen for not listening to the cop.
She basically said that the teen should have put her damn phone up.
Officer Slam (formerly known as Ben Fields) was fired out the cannon last week.
I've heard a handful of students weren't happy about his cannon fire. The conservative agitators were promoting the counter-protest. Some students walked out of class in support of the now former South Carolina deputy for the Richland County sheriff's department.
There's a petition calling for ABC to fire the entertainer out the cannon. So far they see the entertainer as a goldmine. They consider her the Black version of Rosie O'Donnell.
The five most outrageous comments.
1) Defending Officer Slam
3) I'm A Celebrity And I Take Selifes
4) Defending a Spanish host after he called First Lady Michelle Obama an "ape"
5) $20 Harriett Tubman
On Change.org, there's a petition calling for a cannon fire. So far over 135,000 people signed on to the petition. I am guessing that Raven-Symone signed it too as a middle finger to those who want to throw "political correctness" around.
Che Scott-Heron, the U.K. woman who started the petition, wrote on the petition's website that Raven's statements only hurt the black community.
"African Americans and black people around the diaspora need a voice representative of their views and not a voice representative of what white people want us to say." Heron wrote. "We need strong black role models in prominent positions on television and Raven-Symoné cannot provide that. That is why I ask that we petition to remove her from 'The View.'"
As the daytime talk show enters its 19th season, ratings are down. CBS daytime's The Talk enters its 6th season within striking distance of The View. The second quarter ratings bested The View.
By the way, the third worst person to host a cable news show got a petition calling for his cannon fire. Don Lemon also faced a backlash after he got a kick out watching Officer Slam flipping the teen.
