Raven-Symone Calls Beyonce’s “Formation” Video “Hilarious,” The Beyhive Promptly Responds
At this point, it’s highly unlikely that Raven-Symone won’t piss anyone off with her commentary. Next up on her list of things to cause controversy about is Beyonce’s “Formation” video and Super Bowl performance. During the latest episode of The View on Monday (Feb. 8), the once-beloved, now-hated actress tossed her two cents into the jar about Mrs. Carter’s latest musical offering. Spoiler alert: she’s not a fan.
“The new video from Beyonce is hilarious and amazing, and all the Beyhives will be coming for me, but I miss Beyonce singing a ballad in a dress,” she said. “I miss that girl singing. I’ve seen you dance, I miss you. Where’s the ‘Me, Myself and I?’”

Raven-Symone now joins the likes of Rudy Giuliani, who also didn’t take too kindly to Beyonce’s “Formation.” The former New York City mayor took a more ignorant critical stance however, calling the singer’s Super Bowl 50 performance “outrageous,” and labeling the song as an “attack” on police. Raven did not delve that deeply into the muddy waters, but she submerged herself enough to get less-than-friendly responses from the Beyhive. Just as she predicted, the online slander poured in following the show:

So raven Raven-Symone totally disregarded the message of Beyoncé’s new song and had the nerve to say she misses her singing and in a gown?

Yet another lesson in “The Beyhive don’t play that.”
