Raven Symone Addresses Her Bullies: ‘Personal Attacking is Not Needed’

If you thought the Raven Symone drama was a thing of the past, think again. Apparently, the child star has been a victim of cyber bullying ever since her Oprah: Where Are They Now? interview aired. Well enough is enough she says. In a lengthy Facebook post she wrote on Oct 25th, the child star addresses the negative taunting thrown her way following her controversial discussion.

She wrote:

I don’t take offense to those that are mad at my personal opinion of myself. Like before, I’m glad there are conversations happening. Our generation tends to stay comfortable ,at times, with issues and topics that need to be addressed.

QUESTION: If we are taught not to repeat history by learning it. Why do we continue to repeat? We must not be learning it correctly.

What does irritate me is the bulling tone towards myself and other opinions in the blog. Keep your disrespectful, mean, hurtful, words in a diary for yourself. Personal attacking is not needed, and no matter what race, nationality, culture, or womb you came out of; strive for respect. Strive to be virtuous, so the conversation can lead to great things, other things.

Our ancestors of all races had the courage to stand up for what they believed in no matter what the fight. Back then I hope the motto wasn’t…”the more haters the better”

We have reached a standstill in our progression as Humans. Let’s have a floor of RESPECT, KINDNESS, OPENMINDED-nESS. Showing your disagreement with my personal comments by using language you were not allowed to use as a child is just.

My momma reads this, and so do others. ?#?bully?

If you remember, Raven Symone’s disdain for labels (“I don’t want to be labeled ‘gay.’ I want to be labeled ‘a human who loves humans.’ I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African American; I’m an American”) led to an uproar on social media for weeks. She was probably the most hated woman on Black Twitter and although many have chosen to agree to disagree it appears not all have went down this route.

Vixens, do you agree with her FB posts or is she asking to become a trendy topic, yet again?
