After redeeming herself with her new show Raven’s Home, Raven-Symone has landed herself in some hot water with the black community, specifically the fans of rappers JAY Z, Diddy, T.I., DJ Khaled and Big Sean. Someone posted the below photo of the rappers at Jay Z’s Pre Grammy Brunch with the caption:

“A group of so-called ‘successful’ Black men (minus [DJ Khaled] 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.

Raven then re shared the post using her own caption:

I listen to many of these brothers art and I respect certain things about them. But it is imperative that we don’t lose sight of the simple truth – these men were CONGRATULATED by a white supremacist culture for degrading black men and women, portraying us as disposable as a cockroach within their lyrics. They taught and glorified the drug, pimp, prostitution, stripper and gang game, and led many impressionable people down a path that they have paid heavily for, while these “successful dudes got paid! This is not a Diss, it’s a reminder, that all that glitters ain’t gold! True black power is not this, its despite this!”

Raven deleted her original statement due not wanting her young fans to see the comments, but she shared a new post saying that she is standing by her statement:

While the other rappers have decided to remain silent, T.I. chose to address Raven’s comments in a respectful way, but it’s Trey Songz‘ response that takes the cake:
