Raven Symone Controversy: Over Controversial Bill, the ‘Raven’s Home’ Cast Walked out In Protest
Raven-Symoné “Raven” is the stage and screen name of Christina Pearman-Maday (/smon/; born December 10, 1985), an American actress, singer, and songwriter. Five NAACP Image Awards, two Kids’ Choice Awards, three Young Artist Awards, and three Daytime Emmy Award nominations are among the many honours she’s garnered. Among the “100 Greatest Child Stars of All Time” compiled by VH1 was her.
The Cosby Show (1989–1992) and Hangin’ with Mr Cooper (1993–1997), both of which starred Raven-Symoné as a child actor and gained her numerous accolades and nominations, launched her career as an actress. For her work on That’s So Raven (Disney Channel, 2003–2007), she was nominated for multiple awards.
She was just 15 years old at the time. Since 1998, she has been in a number of high-grossing films, including Dr. Dolittle (1998), its sequel Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001), Princess Diaries 2 (2004), and College Road Trip (2008). Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century (1999), its sequel Zenon: Z3 (2004), The Cheetah Girls (2003), its sequel The Cheetah Girls 2 (2006), For One Night (2006), and Revenge of the Bridesmaids (2007) are among her television film credits (2010). Raven-Symoné has also provided the voice of Monique in the animated series Kim Possible and in films like Tinker Bell (2008). As Raven Baxter, Raven-Symoné was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in Children’s Programming for her role on Raven’s Home (2017–present).
All of the cast members of Raven’s Home walked out in protest of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” Bill. As an executive producer on the Disney Channel series, the actress, Mykal-Michelle Harris, Rondell Sheridan, Emmy Lui-Wang and Felix Avitia made a political statement in a video that she posted on Tuesday with the rest of the cast.
When asked why they were walking out in support of the bill, Raven replied, “What the hell, we’re the cast of Raven’s Home and [executive producers],” putting up his phone to show everyone in the background. It’s not something we’re comfortable with. This is the end,” she adds. Adding his two cents, on-screen son Brown says, “It’s stupid.”
“We’re here for everyone, and we’re here to help. “Bye,” Raven says as she exits the shot.
More than a dozen members of the Raven’s Home cast have walked out of work in protest of the Florida Parental Rights in Education law, which would effectively ban schools from teaching sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third grade. Students in grades 3 through 8 are also prohibited from learning about sexual orientation and gender identity, according to the measure. As a result of the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” legislation, parents would be able to bring legal action against schools that decide to implement such a programme. On March 8, the bill was signed into law by the president of the United States.
Actors and crew members from “Raven’s Home” walked out in protest of the “don’t speak gay bill,” which they believe will harm the LGBTQ+ community. Take a stand, show support and keep moving forward rather than backwards in today’s world,” he says. No of their ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation, every family, every individual, and every child deserves to be celebrated. The truth and the world we live in must be reflected in our educational system. The hashtag #dontsaygaybill [rainbow emojis]
In 2020, Raven-Symone married Miranda Maday, her longtime partner. TikTok is one of many social media platforms on which they share frequent content as a couple with their fans.
Disney employees have been protesting daily since March 15th. “The Walt Disney Company (TWDC) LGBTQIA+ community and their allies are determined to take a stand against TWDC’s apathy in the face of the prejudiced ‘Don’t Say Gay or Trans’ bill put out by the FL state government,” the statement on the protest’s website whereischapek.com said. There has been a glaring lack of leadership on the part of TWDC when it comes to the “Don’t Say Gay or Trans” bill, as evidenced by their recent words and inaction. To put it another way, we’ve been pushed into an untenable situation as a neighbourhood.
Then, the statement went on. In the face of such open and unabashed hatred, we must now take action to persuade TWDC to protect its employees and their families. We will begin a series of collective actions together beginning the week of March 14th to make our voices and demands known!”
