The fallout over Raven-Symonè's comment that she wouldn't hire someone with a "ghetto" name continues.
On Friday, the outspoken host said, "Just to bring it back, can we take back 'racist' and say 'discriminatory,' because I think that’s a better word. And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in those names. I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you."
Well, there's a "real" Watermelondrea out there, and she's pissed. YouTube star Tré Melvin, who portrays a fictitious character named Watermelondrea on social media, had a lot to say to Raven about her comments, which even caused her own dad to accuse her of saying some "dumb s**t." Watch the clip below to see Watermelondrea Jones read the heck out of Raven:
