Raven-Symone comes out in tweet applauding gay marriage

August 5, 2013

The 27-year-old actress sent a tweet Friday praising advances in gay rights and celebrating the fact that she could "finally get married."

Symone later issued a statement through her agent clarifying that she has no immediate plans to get married, but she says it's great to know she can if she chooses.

Symone is well-known for her long-running show "That's So Raven" and for her childhood role on the Cosby show as "Olivia."

Symone's agent said her statements were prompted by her support of Minnesota and Rhode Island joining the list of states permitting legalized gay marriage.
