Sorry, she's not sorry.

On Saturday night, the 25th Annual Latex Ball celebrated the fight against HIV/AIDS with fashion, dance and competition. One of the most popular New York City events of the year, the Latex Ball always brings out the celebs and this year, Raven-Symoné was the belle of the ball. 


After sashaying the runway to an excited crowd of over 2,000 — who chanted "That's so Raven!" in unision — the outspoken co-host of The View encouraged everyone to get tested, but didn't hold back when it came to the backlash she received last week for agreeing with Martin O'Malley's comment, "All lives matter." The former Cosby kid said, "Even though I got into trouble on Black Twitter — hashtag, all lives do matter — as well as, Black lives do matter, as well as all other kinds of lives matter. Deal. You can be mad, I don't care."
