Raven-Symone: “If Any Republican Gets Nominated, I’m Gonna Move To Canada”
Raven-Symone said on “The View” on Thursday that she’s planning to move to Canada “if any Republican gets nominated” for president. Check out the video below.
Raven-Symone made the comment during a “Hot Topics” discussion about “election confessions,” in which she and the co-hosts had to say things they previously hadn’t admitted related to the 2016 presidential election. The actress declared, “My confession for this election is if any Republican gets nominated, I’m gonna move to Canada with my entire family.”
And she insisted she wasn’t kidding. “I already have my ticket,” Raven-Symone told her co-stars. “I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”
Considering there’s several GOP contenders currently battling it out during the preliminary election rounds, there’s approximately a ZERO percent chance one of them won’t score the Republican nomination. Which means Raven-Symone might want to start packing her bags. Of course, many other people have flippantly made remarks about moving North should Donald Trump win the presidency, but it’ll be interesting to see if “The Cosby Show” star actually sticks to her word.
And this isn’t the first time Raven-Symone’s raised eyebrows during “The View.” As Gossip Cop has reported, she came under fire last year for questioning the arrest of the officer in the Spring Valley Assault case, and apologized after making discriminatory comments about stereotypical black names. There was even a petition last fall to have the former child star fired from the show, leading a spokesperson to tells Gossip Cop, “We love Raven. She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel.”
Earlier this week, ABC renewed “The View” for its 20th season, slated to begin in the fall. It wasn’t revealed which co-hosts will be returning. And depending on how the election plays out, location could be an issue for Raven-Symone. Watch a clip below, beginning at the 4:40 mark, and Gossip Cop will add full video when available.
