Hollywood actress-turned-media personality, Stacey Dash, has been receiving some serious backlash following her opinion on the Oscars boycott, which she made known during an interview on the TV show, Fox & Friends, alongside US presidential candidate, Donald Trump.
“I think it’s ludicrous,” Dash, 49, said about the response to the Oscar nominations. “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 it you’re black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms, it’s a double standard,” she added before saying “there shouldn’t be a black history month. We’re Americans. Period.”
Among those putting her on blast for this, is her ex, American rapper, Ryan Prophet, who went into a long rant, questioning her views on black culture.
“@realstaceyldash your views on black culture & people of color as a whole are Fucking terrible. I wonder do you truly love yourself & this is coming from a brother that had genuine Luv for you since day1 as a fan Artist lover & creater many young sisters look up to you….Ask your self do u really Luv BLACK BABIES?! #blacklivesmatter but out of respect for your son That post was took down make me a believer help those people in #flint oh I forgot your a Foxnewspuppet just remember bleaching your skin is poisonous. @bet#giveBETtheyCheckBack #shaderoom #TMZ #LuvBScott #allhiphopdotcom #staceydumb #doNotMakeMeTellItAll #BeautifulOutsideInUGLY #DontMakeMeTell staceyGone#.”
