"We love Raven," a network spokesperson tells PEOPLE. "She is confident, genuine and opinionated, all qualities that make her a great addition to the panel."
After Raven, 29, criticized a high school student who was tackled by a now fired police officer in South Caroline, a Change.org petition calling for her removal popped up. Five days later, it has garnered more than 130,000 signatures.

Raven-Symoné is owning up to her mistake.
The View co-host admitted that her Thursday comments about racial name discrimination were "in poor taste" in a Facebook post Sunday.
During a discussion about the racist assumptions Americans make based on someone's name, Symoné said, "I'm very discriminatory against words like the ones they were saying in those names. I'm not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea," referencing a viral video the show played that listed the 60 most "ghetto names."

"We've been trying to do a reunion," The View panelist told PEOPLE on Sunday at the N.Y.C. Dance Alliance Bright Lights Shining Stars Gala in New York. "But it's up to Disney Channel if they want to or not."

Whoopi Goldberg Defends Kelly Osbourne's Comment on Latinos: 'If You've Ever Met a Racist, It's Pretty Clear'

Two more celebrities have rallied around Kelly Osbourne after she apologized for making a disparaging remark about the Latino community.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Raven-Symoné both defended Osbourne for her gaffe – "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?" – from the previous show Wednesday.
"The point she was actually trying to make was that Donald Trump's stance on immigration will only end up hurting the people that Donald Trump is counting on," said Goldberg, 59. "And one of the things that happens on live television is you try to get your point in and you try to hit it, and you sometimes stepped in dog doo. It does not make you a racist. ... Sometimes your head works faster than your mouth. It happens."
