Apparently actress Stacey Dash, known best for her starring role in “Clueless” back in the mid-90s has been under verbal attack since she publicly endorsed Mitt Romney via ‘tweet’. People including actor Samuel L. Jackson were infuriated by her comment and lashed out angrily, no holds barred. Some of the comments ranged from mild name-calling to an especially infuriated tweeter who suggested that Dash commit suicide calling her an old hag.
Dash sat down with CNN’s Piers Morgan on “Piers Morning Tonight” to discuss the influx of criticism that came after endorsing Romney in a Twitter post on Sunday. That tweet spurred angry and sometimes racist responses from those who scoffed at Dash of Black and Latino descent for supporting the GOP nominee. “The fury, I really don’t understand the fury,” Dash told Morgan on Tuesday night. “I don’t understand it. I don’t get it … I was shocked, saddened. Not angry. Saddened and really shocked. But you know what, you can’t expect everyone to agree with you.” “The state of our country is that we are not united,” Dash told Morgan when asked how one innocuous tweet, sent by a Black actress, could spawn such mayhem.
The former “Single Ladies” actress voted for Obama in 2008 but says that she is changing her vote to Romney “because of the state of the country and I want the next four years to be different. I believe him.” Dash alluded to Martin Luther King, Jr. when defending her choice to vote for Romney over Barack Obama in the 2012 election. “I chose him not by the color of his skin, but the content of his character,” she said. This is a classic case of to each its own. Everyone has a right to their opinion but by going public with hers, Dash set herself up to people openly voicing theirs, “I’m just saying.”
