Disney+ is coming under fire today, as the child focused streaming platform aired one of their stars calling an African American male actor a "rude n*gga."
MTO News has confirmed that the expletive was used in an episode of the Disney series That's So Raven - and as of this morning - the episode (with the word used) is currently available on Disney+.
In the controversial episode, Raven is arguing with her co-star Orlando Brown. And during the course of the argument, she calls him a "rude n*gga."
Someone recorded a portion of the episode - where Raven uttered the explicit language and posted it on social media. The video quickly went viral.
Here's the video - you have to listen closely:
We reached out to reps for Disney, and so far have not received an official response regarding this scandal.
Raven was born in Atlanta, Georgia, to Lydia (Gaulden) and Christopher Pearman. She has a younger brother, Blaize. As an infant, she worked for Atlanta's Young Faces Inc. Modeling Agency and was featured in local print advertisements. At age two, she worked with Ford Models in New York City and appeared in ads for Ritz crackers, Jell-O, Fisher-Price, and Cool Whip. At age three, her family moved to Ossining, New York where she attended Park School.
In 1989, Pearman auditioned for a role in the Bill Cosby movie, Ghost Dad. At the age of three, she was considered too young for the role, but Cosby liked her so much that he found a role for her on his show, The Cosby Show, as his step-granddaughter Olivia. She made her debut in the premiere episode of the show's sixth season, and remained until the series finale in 1992. She then appeared as the younger version of Halle Berry's starring character, a headstrong biracial slave, in the TV movie Queen: The Story of an American Family, based on the book by Alex Haley.
