Raven Symone Demoted The View


Raven-Symone has NOT been “demoted” on “The View,” despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. A rep for the ABC morning show tells us the allegation is “absolutely not true.”

The story comes from MediaTakeOut, which is trying to cover one lie with another. Earlier this month, the webloid falsely alleged Raven-Symone was “fired” from “The View.” Gossip Cop busted the report, and we were 100 percent right.

Now MediaTakeOut is claiming Raven-Symone will be staying with the show, but in a diminished capacity. “We told y’all that Raven was about to get FIRED from ‘The View.’ According to our sources, Raven has been DEMOTED – from co-host to ‘correspondent,'” reads the new article. “They even removed her from ‘The View’s home page. You can now find her on ANOTHER PAGE, with other ‘correspondents’ of the show – including Padma Lakshmi and Sherri Shepherd.”

All of that, however, is a lie. First off, Raven-Symone did NOT receive any kind of demotion. She remains a full-fledged co-host. Second, she has NOT been “removed” from the talk show’s homepage. She is still listed, as always, in alphabetical order, and MediaTakeOut’s “reporters” would have realized that had they bothered to scroll.

Lastly, Raven-Symone is still on the official “cast” page, not “another page with other correspondents.” In fact, she’s listed right there as a “co-host” (see photo above), just like her colleagues, while it very clearly calls Lakshmi and Shepherd “contributors.” The spokesperson for “The View” sums it up best: MediaFakeOut is just “trying to make trouble where there isn’t any.”
