"Some People Look Like Animals:" Raven-Symoné Defends Fired Univision Host's Comments About Michelle Obama

Pretty soon That's So Raven will be synonymous with That's So Stupid As the child star continues to say things that make you go "shut your mouth and sit down Olivia"

Last week, Univision host Rodner Figueroa was fired after he said First Lady Michelle Obama looked like Planet of the Apes.  The women of The View discussed the controversy today. And while the majority of the panel agreed that the comment was racist, actress  Raven-Symoné wasn't so sure.

Co-host Rosie Perez was passionate about Figueroa's words. She said, "I am the Latin person here at this table, and I would like to tell you that it was racist. Period. And the thing is this is a problem in our Latin community that we do not talk about—that we do not address. It is real, and it was revealed by this man's statement."
