Raven-Symoné: Michelle Obama Planet of the Apes Comparison Wasn't Racist, Some People Just Look Like Animals

Raven-Symoné was just trying to share her view, but it wasn't exactly received well.

The actress was a guest co-host on The View earlier today and at one point of the show, began to discuss the controversial headlines surrounding Michelle Obama.

For those who are unaware, FLOTUS was recently at the center of some eyebrow-raising comments made by Univision's Rodner Figueroa on the program El Gordo Y La Flaca when he stated, "Mind you, you know that Michelle Obama looks like she's part of the cast of Planet of the Apes, the film."

Yikes! Whoopi Goldberg introduced the topic to the audience and Rosie Perezkicked off the discussion by stating that his comment (which ultimately cost him his job) was racist.
