Raven Symone is receiving a ton of backlash after stating her opinion on why Harriet Tubman should not be on the $20 bill. Now everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but when spewing your thoughts out on live television, be prepared for the viewers to spew out their opinions as well.

Here is what Raven had to say.

“No offense to everyone that’s going to be mad at me for saying this, I don’t like that idea. I think we need to move a little bit forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it Trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture. … I would’ve chosen Rosa Parks. I would have chosen someone that is closer to the progression that we’re doing now. I know you have to understand history so you don’t repeat it, but that doesn’t happen in our world, because we still repeat history of hating other cultures over and over again. I would choose a different woman, no offense.”

Check out the video clip below from The View and a few tweets of the public speaking out on Raven’s opinion.
