The wrath of the internet is coming for Raven-Symoné once again. Just when it seemed like she was in good graces of social media, she slammed rappers such as JAY-Z, Diddy, T.I., and others who posed for an iconic photo that circulated the internet following the Roc Nation Grammy Brunch.
The Disney Channel star reposted a meme to her Instagram, that labeled the artists as drug dealers, murderers and pimps.
The original caption read: “A group of so-called ‘successful’ Black men (minus [Khaled] racially) who became rich and famous from perpetuating the worst Black stereotypes to the ears and eyes of the whole planet like drug dealing, pimping, murdering other Black men and disrespecting Black women.”
T.I. clapped back at the criticism, but decided to take the high road. The Atlanta rapper posted a famous Oscar Wilde quote to his Instagram that read: “Every saint has a past & every sinner has a future.”
After catching serious backlash, the 32-year old deleted the post. However, she made it clear that she stood by her opinions about the hip-hop and R&B artists and their road to success. In a follow-up post she said, “Deleted my post because the comments were not something I want my underage followers looking at.” She continued, “I’m not deleting because I don’t believe in what I said.”
