Label-hating Raven-Symoné came out in support of Miley Cyrus saying that she never wants to label herself.

Cyrus said earlier this month that not all her past relationships were straight. She added that “I never want to label myself! I am ready to love anyone that loves me for who I am! I am open!”

On The View, Symoné said that she supports Cyrus and agrees, “we should not be labeled, because that creates tension between people…Let’s just be human and call it a day.”

Symoné received lots of backlash during an interview with Oprah Winfrey last year when she said that she didn’t want to be labeled as “gay” or “African-American.” On The View, she stood by her words.

“She doesn’t want to be labeled,” Symoné said of Cyrus. “That sounds familiar…I know where my roots come from. She knows where her roots come from. She knows who she lays in bed with…”

Symoné most recently drew attention to herself again by saying that she doesn’t think Harriet Tubman should be on the $20 bill.

“No offense to everyone that’s going to be mad at me for saying this, I don’t like that idea,” Symoné said on The View. “I think we need to move a little bit forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me. I was taught. I was in that culture…I would’ve chosen Rosa Parks. I would have chosen someone that is closer to the progression that we’re going now. I know you have to understand history so you don’t repeat it, but that doesn’t happen in our world, because we still repeat history of hating other cultures over and over again. I would have chosen a different woman, no offense.”

She did say, however, that a woman certainly should be on the bill.
