T.I. Responds to Raven Symone Calling Out Rappers Via Instagram

Raven-Symone recently faced backlash from fans and haters alike for putting a group of rappers on blast via Instagram, with one of them taking some time to respond.

The former child star posted a photo of several rappers toasting to the good life at Roc Nation’s Pre-Grammy Brunch, including Jay-Z, Jim Jones, Yo Gotti, Diddy, T.I. and others.

“A group of so-called “successful Black men (minus Khalid racially) who became rich and famous from perpetuating the worst Black stereotypes to the ears and eyes of whole planet like drug dealing, pimping, murdering other Black men and disrespecting Black women.”

It continued, “I know, making observations is being a hater. Cheers.”

Symone added emojis, including a heart, to the post, leading many to believe she agrees with the statement.

While some agreed with her overall point, the 32-year-old actress was immediately called out for trying to start trouble. She eventually deleted the post, claiming she didn’t want her young fans seeing the explicit comments being left on her page. She also made a point to note that she stands by her opinion.

Atlanta’s own T.I. decided to respond to the part-time singer, saying she shouldn’t be so judgmental of people who have overcome past obstacles while suggesting she come down off of her “high horse.”

Do you think Symone made a good point?
