The View co-host Raven-Symoné had more to say on Thursday about a violent arrest of a South Carolina high school girl that was caught on tape, but made no mention of the online backlash against her regarding her previous comments on the incident.
The 29-year-old, who rose to fame as a child star on The Cosby Show, first expressed her opinions about the case on The View on Wednesday. A video, which has gone viral, shows a white police officer summoned to remove a 16-year-old female black student from a classroom at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, S.C. He is seen approaching the girl, flipping her desk over and dragging her across the floor before arresting her, in front of her classmates, on a charge of "disturbing school."
Raven-Symoné, who has stirred controversy with her remarks on The View before, had said the student "was told multiple times to get off her phone" and that, while the officer's actions were "ridiculous," "you've got to follow the rules in school."
