The actress caused a stir on Friday when she condemned people with "ghetto names."
Raven-Symoné’s latest statement condemning people with “ghetto” names had millions rolling their eyes—even her father.
Raven asserted the controversial opinion last Friday on The View, spurring her father, Christopher B. Pearman, to write a Facebook letter questioning some of her comments but ultimately defending his daughter, reports The Grio.
“Children grow up and become influenced by many things, situations and people. I certainly don’t agree with what she said…but she is damn near thirty years old,” he wrote. “She’s a grown a– woman making grown a– mistakes. We all have been guilty of this.”
He goes on to express his pride in his daughter’s continued success, pointing out that many child stars find themselves on a downward spiral. But not, he notes, his daughter (questionable statements excluded).
“Raven is a really beautiful, sweethearted human being,” he said. “I should know. 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!”
