It is no surprise that 'Clueless' star and Fox News correspondent Stacy Dash's comments about the Academy Awards lack of diversity created a social media storm. Dash, who is of Barbadian, African-American, and Mexican descent, was trending on social media for hours. Thousands of blacks and Hispanics slammed Dash’s views and dragged her for ignorance. The NAACP has yet to respond to her comments, but BET clapped back in an EPIC way:
This is not the first time the super conservative political pundit has been blasted on social media for the basura that readily comes out of her mouth. Black Twitter dragged her for filth when she stated that minorities 'feel worthless’ and ‘uneducated’ under President Barack Obama. She was almost beheaded when she made remarks about "naughty girls" during a discussion regarding sexual assault on college campuses. And she was damn near banished from society when she made ill-informed comments on The Meredith Vieira Show about women and the wage gap.
While Stacey Dash is entitled to her opinion, anyone who makes bold statements without fact checking first, is well, estúpido. Many on social media agree. Check out the social media comments below:
