Raven-Symoné did not have a friend in Rosie Perez when she appeared as a guest cohost on The View on Monday.
While discussing Univision host Rodner Figueroa, who was fired last week for saying Michelle Obama "looks like she's from the cast of Planet of the Apes," the recurring Empire star, 29, jumped to his defense. "Was he saying it racist-like?" she asked. "Because he said that he voted for her later, and I don't think he was saying it racist."
An incredulous Perez, 50, likened Figueroa's claim that he voted for President Barack Obama to those who say they can't be racist because they "have black friends."

A year after publicly addressing her sexuality on Twitter, Raven-Symoné gave her first in-depth interview on the matter.
Appearing on Sunday's episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now, the former Disney Channel actress, 28, told Oprah Winfrey: "I don't want to be labeled gay. I want to be labeled a human who loves humans. I'm tired of being labeled."
After years of speculation, Symoné opened up about her sexuality on Twitter after the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act in the summer of 2013.

Raven-Symoné and Lindsay Lohan were once roommates, but the former Cosby Show star may not have the highest opinion of her former pal.
"It's unnecessary to go to the most popular restaurant in the world when you have a scandal on your head and then get mad that someone's gonna take a picture of you," Symoné tells Oprah Winfrey on Sunday's episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? when asked how she has stayed out of the tabloids. "That's your fault, Boo-Boo. Stay in the house."
Though she does not call out Lohan by name, many fans are speculating that Symoné was speaking with her former roomie in mind.
