People are up in arms after the ladies of The View discussed the Spring Valley High School assault yesterday, specifically Raven-Symoné.
If you missed the story, a high school girl in a classroom was yanked and dragged out of her desk chair when she wouldn’t stop using her phone in class.
Watch the clip below starting at 2:51:
Raven-Symoné basically says that the way the officer treated the student was completely uncalled for, but that the girl also needs to get off her phone in class, a comment for which she has received backlash on social media.
So… What’s the problem?
To me, we’re giving Twitter and social media trolls far too much credit if we’re going to call Raven-Symoné’s comments controversial. The story itself is controversial, so no matter what, if anyone has a strong opinion, there are going to be people who disagree, and inevitably, fire back on social media.
The key is not to care.
As for the story, Raven-Symoné was right. There was more than just one person in the wrong. No, the officer should not have treated the student like that (he has now been punished for it), and no, the student should not have been on their phone in class.
Also, The View must be thrilled to be making headlines for in all actuality a pretty tame on-air discussion, but if there’s any hope for the show to stay on top or even on-air, they need to be better about doing their research. While this discussion was interesting, they were primarily unprepared and thus uninteresting for the remainder of the show.0
