Raven-Symoné Said She Wouldn’t Hire Someone With A 'Black' Name

Raven-Symoné clearly forgot her name is Raven-Symoné.

As a co-host on "The View," Raven-Symoné has made her fair share of offensive comments in the past -- and today was no different.

On a segment titled "Are You Judged By Your Name?" the former Cheetah Girl, donning a fire engine-red mohawk, said she wouldn't hire anyone with a "black" sounding name.

“Can we take back 'racist' and say 'discriminatory,' because I think thats a better word,"  she said while laughing. "And I’m very discriminatory against the words like the ones they were saying in those names. I’m not going to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. That’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”

Watch the clip from "The View" below:

As expected, Raven received some backlash from Twitter: 

 

This is the same woman who doesn't want to be labeled as "African-American" and is "from every continent in Africa except for one."

Girl. Get your life.
