T.I. And Trey Songz Call Out Raven Symone After Shading Them With An Instagram Post

Close

It looks like Raven-Symoné has landed herself in hot water yet again! The former Disney Channel star immediately received backlash after making statements about some of the industry's most prolific rappers.

Symoné shared an iconic photo featuring some of the most elite MCs such as Jay-Z, T.I., Diddy, Swizz Beatz, and DJ Khaled. The 32-year-old used the now deleted post to make a point about the ills of the Black community and the route to success.

"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 plant like drug dealing, pimping, murdering other Black men and disrespecting Black women. I know, making observations is being a hater. Cheers," the actress wrote.

Following her statement, the former The View co-host received tons of comments slamming her for her statement, which caused her to delete the post.

On Saturday, Feb. 3, Symoné took to her Instagram to explain why she decided to delete her post.

"Deleted my post because the comments were not something I want my underage followers looking at. I'm not deleting because I don't believe in what I said," Symoné wrote.

The That's So Raven star may have decided to delete her post but that didn't stop one of the rappers mentioned to clap back at her.

The Clap Back

Music mogul T.I. is known for never being afraid to speak his mind when necessary, so when Symoné sounded off about the rappers he decided to step in.

Although he was one of the only rappers to fire back at the actress, his response was supported by Trey Songz.

T.I. took his Instagram on Sunday to respond to Symoné's post on behalf of all the men that were in the photo.

The "Why You Wanna" rapper shared a photo of a quote which reads, "Every Saint Has A Past & Every Sinner Has A Future." 

"@ravensymone Our sins ain't no greater than yours ma'am. The air must be thin as hell up there on that high horse you sittin on. Somebody please let me know...WTF up wit shawty?" T.I. wrote.

Trey Songz later joined in on the comments calling Symoné a clown and joked about her "speech." 

Raven Stirs Up Social Media 

This isn't the first time Symoné caused controversy on social media. In 2015, she received backlash for her geography mishap. When asked about her ancestry and comments during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Symoné explained that she never said she wasn't black, she said she wasn't African-American. She further explained that she is "from every continent in Africa except for one." 

Social media immediately slammed the actress for her comments and even joked about her supposedly putting her foot in her mouth. 

Let's see if she will make a remark to T.I.'s message.
