Raven Symone's dad has also reacted to her recent comments on 'The View' and says his daughter sometimes says some "dump sh*t!"

Raven Symone and father, Christopher B. Pearman

Raven-Symoné is still trying to apologize for her recent comments on The View about not hiring someone with 'Ghetto' names and now, her father says his daughter kind of crossed the line with what she said!


Christopher B. Pearman took to his Facebook on Sunday night [October 11] and wrote: "I certainly don't agree with what she said....but she is damn near thirty years old… She's a grown ass woman making grown ass mistakes. We all have been guilty of this."

He added, "Her Mother and I Love her Very much and will always support her and have her back. Even if sometimes..........she says some dumb S#%T!"


In a struggle to make sure her comments don't spin further out of control, Raven opened up about her own experiences with discrimination.

"I have been denied many jobs because of my skin color, body size, and age. Each time I was rejected, my self-esteem was negatively affected, so I empathize with those who feel victimized by what I said."

"We would hope that when it comes to hiring, our names, physical appearance, sexual orientation, and age would never outweigh our qualifications, but often times, they do, that's the truth and it sucks. But I should not be part of the problem, I should be part of the solution," Raven wrote on Facebook
