After Arrested Development rapper Speech slammed rappers like T.I., Diddy and Jay-Z for perpetuating stereotypes in their music, Raven-Symoné chimed in with a curious series of emojis.
The “Raven’s Home” actress on Saturday, Feb. 3 reposted Speech’s remarks and a photo from the Roc Nation brunch. It included a face with a monocle emoji, a no mouth emoji and a gold heart emoji. The faces were taken as shade and soon afterward T.I. and Trey Songz hit back at her — even though Speech is the one who made the comments a day earlier.
“Our sins ain’t no greater than yours ma’am,” T.I. posted Sunday, Feb. 4, tagging Raven in the process. “The air must be thin as hell up there on that high horse you sittin’ on. Somebody, please let me know…WTF up wit shawty?”
Trey Songz added in the comments, “It’s so sad that she’s really a clown,” he said, complete with a clown emoji.
The men had support for their clap backs, with one person writing, “She is an old bitter woman trapped in a young woman body… always tearing her own people down!”
Another told Tip, “Please let her know.”
It seems the heat got to Raven because by Sunday she had removed her post apparently to “protect her underage Instagram followers.”
“I’m not deleting because I don’t believe in what I said,” she added, perhaps meaning she still agrees with Speech’s sentiments.
She locked down the comments leaving just her caption, “SMH,” visible.
