Actress and former star of “The Cosby Show” and “That’s So Raven” told Oprah over the weekend that:
I don’t want to be labeled ‘gay.’ I want to be labeled ‘a human who loves humans… I’m tired of being labeled… I’m an American. I’m not an African American; I’m an American.
Knowing that many in the audience might have a strong reaction to her words, Oprah cautioned Raven-Symoné, saying, “Oh, girl… Don’t set up Twitter on fire…Oh, my lord. What did you just say?”1
