Raven-Symoné stunned her followers when she announced she had tied the knot with her Caucasian girlfriend on Thursday.
The 34-year-old mixed-race actress and singer announced her intimate nuptials to Miranda Pearman-Maday in a series of photos on Instagram.com.
She captioned the photos: “I got married to a woman who understands me from trigger to joy, from breakfast to midnight snack, from stage to home. I love you Mrs. Pearman-Maday! Let’s tear this world a new asshole!!! I’s married NOW.”
But not everyone was happy for her. The reaction to Raven’s announcement ranged from praise to outrage. She is pictured below with her father Christopher Pearman.
Many expressed anger that Raven tied the knot with a white person amid the racial tension and strife in America following the deaths of unarmed Black men at the hands of police.
One follower raged: “I am roasting her for denouncing herself as a black person. Marrying a white woman makes it look like she’s not with us due to her past comments. Otherwise, I don’t care who or what she marries. Just disappointed, my childhood hero doesn’t align with her people.”
Another IG user wrote: “All of you make God do America just like he did Sodom and Gomorrah.”
But others were more tolerant toward Raven’s unorthodox union.
“What is wrong with all of you,” one woman wrote, “‘this isn’t the time to be married to a white person’ are all of you, okay? You can 100 percent support BLM and be with a white person, and it’s not supposed to black vs. whites. It’s supposed to be all of us versus racism, injustices, and ignorance. Come on.”
Another IG user addd: “What does marrying white people have to do with ending racism when many racists sleep with black people?”
Fans warned Raven that her new life partner might be a gold digger after her money. They prayed that Raven was smart enough to have a prenup in place.
Raven-Symoné previously dated part-time model and ‘Empire’ actress AzMarie Livingston. They officially called it quits in 2015 after 3 years together.
