News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Jan. 22, 2016: Bronx-born actress Stacey Dash may claim roots in Mexico, Africa and Barbados, but her consistent contentious and “Clueless” comments on the Fox News Channel suggests anything but immigrant/black roots!
The 49-year-old’s latest comments comes over the lack of diversity in this year’s Oscar nominations in which she inanely suggested the solution is to do away with Black History Month and BET.
Here are some of the most ridiculous comments from the actress:
1: The crown jewel from Wednesday January 20, 2016: “I think it’s ludicrous. We have to make up our minds; either we want to have segregation or integration. If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards, and the [NAACP] 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 […] Just like there shouldn’t be a Black History Month. We’re American, that’s it,” she stated.
2: Her number two “crazy” moment occurred On December 7, 2015, as Dash was asked for her reaction to President Obama’s comments on terrorism following the San Bernadino attack. “It’s ridiculous. His speech was an epic fail. It was like when you have to go to a dinner with your parents, but you have a party to go to afterwards, that’s what it felt like. he was just trying to get through it because he wanted to go to this event afterwards. I did not feel any better. I didn’t feel any passion from him, like you said Andrea. I felt like he could give a shit– excuse me, like he could care less! And here we have fourteen people dead,” Dash stated. She was suspended by Fox for a use of profanity on air.
3: Last February, Dash actually commented on the political atmosphere at the 2015 Academy Awards, saying she was “appalled” by the 2015 ceremony and slamming Patricia Arquette who used her acceptance speech as the Best Supporting Actress winner to call for equal pay for women. On Fox and Friends, Dash said: “Patricia Arquette needs to do her history. In 1963, Kennedy passed the Equal Pay Law, it’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights.”
4: At the same time, she was also asked about the snub of Selma star David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay for an award. To which she responded: “I do know that if it were something conservative and there were not any black people in the audience or on the stage getting awards, there would be a lot of problems. “[It’s a] double standard. They’re hypocrites.”
5: After the University of Virginia urged female students last summer to avoid parties in order to prevent rape and other sexual misconduct, the actress addressed the new development by voicing her controversial opinion on the topic on Fox’s ‘Outnumbered.’
“I think it’s a good thing for the good girls to be told to stay home, be safe,” she said. “The other bad girls – bad women – are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt. The other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol instead of the person who overdrinks. It’s like, the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, you get yourself drunk.”
6: In January 2014, Dash last lashed out at rapper Kanye West for comparing the paparazzi’s constant attention to rape.”For Kanye to say rape, maybe he needs to spend some time on Rikers Island… Go to Rikers for a little while and then he’ll know what rape is,” Dash said.
7: Back in June 2013, after the Food Network and many other endorsers dropped celebrity chef Paula Deen when allegations of her racist antics and words surfaced, Dash elected to extend her and her daughter’s support, tweeting: “God does everything for a reason @Paula_Deen Only God can judge your heart. BTW my daughter loves your show (only way she can get me to cook).”
8: In 2013, Dash added her voice to the political persecution of Jay Z and Beyonce for their trip to Cuba that year. She took to Twitter to blast the power couple saying, “Do you care that The Jay-Z’s have taken the capital you have given them and funded a communist oppressive regime?”
9: When both the ACLU and the NAACP filed lawsuits challenging North Carolina’s voter ID law, believing it undermined the political effectiveness of Blacks and other minority groups in the state. But Dash took to Twitter to disagree stating: “Of course. VOTER ID. Common Sense.”
10: When Oprah Winfrey drew a comparison between Trayvon Martin’s 2012 killing and that of 14-year-old Emmett Till’s in 1955, Dash tweeted a link to a Fox News article deriding the media mogul for making the comparison. “Shame on you @oprah,” she tweeted, before quoting activist Malcolm X. “If you aren’t careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”
