Raven-Symoné faced serious heat because of an Instagram post addressing many iconic men in hip-hop. The television star reposted a photo including T.I., Jay Z, Diddy, and others gathering at the Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch. The original post featured a caption that snidely criticized the men’s success: “A group of so-called ‘successful’ Black men (minus Khalid [sic] 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. I know, making observations is being a hater. Cheers.”
Raven added a set of emojis—the monocle, the mouthless face, and a yellow heart—that suggested she agreed with the sentiment.
