Model and 90’s actress known most for the movie “Clueless,” Stacey Dash, has since gone from pin-up queen into a controversial conservative Fox News contributor.
When Dash was asked to comment on the remarks made my Jada Pinkett Smith for people of color to boycott the Oscars since her husband, Will Smith, was not nominated for his role in the movie “Concussion,” she had some choice words that angered some.
STACEY DASH: We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards where you’re only awarded if you’re black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.
STEVE DOOCY (HOST): So you say there shouldn’t be a BET channel?
DASH: No, I don’t think so. No. Just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month. You know? We’re Americans. Period. That’s it.
DOOCY: Are you saying there shouldn’t be a Black History Month because there isn’t a white history month?
DASH: Exactly. Exactly.
Despite the backlash she’s received, Dash has more to say against BET.
The Fox News contributor and actress took to her blog on Wednesday to pen a scathing response called “How BET Lies to Black People.”
“Most people have never heard of The Game,” Dash wrote in reference to the network’s Instagram post, reminding her that she once appeared on a BET program. “Why? It’s on BET. Quick. Name the top shows on BET. Drawing a blank? I think I’ve made my point.”
Music mogul and cousin of Stacey Dash, Dame Dash, talked to Dr. Boyce Watkins on his youtube show and had these thoughts about his cousins’ comments.
