Raven-Symoné DefendsWifeAgainst Online Hate and Death Threats

Actress Raven-Symoné and her wife Miranda Pearman-Maday addressed disturbing death threats and hateful comments directed at Pearman-Maday in a TikTok video posted on May 2. The backlash stemmed from an interview the couple did with podcaster Fannita, which led to misinformation being spread online claiming that Pearman-Maday said she didn't know who Raven-Symoné was.

In the emotional video, Raven-Symoné called out the online trolls, saying, "Please stop with the death threats and miss information about miranda v. pm. Its grown to a place that is completely disrespectful and out of control. Haters will hate and by all means do you boo boo HOWEVER do not spread lies and threaten my wife, marriage, or her character. I chose her and all of her.... Stop." She reiterated, "Stop it in the comments and stop with the death threats in her DMs. It is disrespectful to her and in turn disrespectful to me. Stop it."

Pearman-Maday clarified the misinformation in the TikTok, stating, "I only ever said that I did not grow up watching 'That's So Raven,' I did not watch her as a child... But since getting married and meeting her in 2015, I have seen the majority of her work. I've also been at a lot of this work." The couple first met in 2015 at a bar in West Hollywood, where Pearman-Maday, who previously worked as a personal assistant and birth doula, instantly connected with Raven-Symoné.

Their connection was so strong that Pearman-Maday uprooted her life and moved to New York to be with the actress, despite Raven-Symoné requiring all her dating partners to sign an NDA, which Pearman-Maday initially refused before eventually signing. The couple got married in 2020 and have been open about their love and admiration for each other. In the TikTok video, Raven-Symoné expressed her appreciation for her wife, saying, "It makes me fall in love with you more when I see you do your job. You are so attentive, helpful, smart, educated (and) calm."

The online harassment and death threats directed at Pearman-Maday highlight the pervasive issue of cyberbullying and the spread of misinformation on social media platforms. As public figures, Raven-Symoné and Pearman-Maday's experience sheds light on the importance of addressing and combating online hate and the need for greater accountability and moderation on these platforms.

The couple's decision to speak out against the hate and set the record straight demonstrates their resilience and commitment to standing up against online abuse. Their message underscores that behind every public figure is a real person with feelings and the right to be treated with respect and dignity, both online and offline. Raven-Symoné and Pearman-Maday also host a podcast together called "The Best Podcast Ever," showcasing their strong bond and shared interests.
