Stacey voiced her support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt on Twitter — a move that she’s taken a lot of heat for! Read on for all the details.

Stacey Dash, who famously played Dionne in Clueless, took to her Twitter account on Sunday, Oct. 7 to share her choice for president in November’s election — Republican candidate Mitt Romney! It was an announcement that shocked her fans, who responded with some not-so-nice words.

In her tweet, Stacey said, “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.” Mitt, whose platform is often criticized for its approach to women’s rights and minority rights, might seem like an unlikely choice for Stacey — a point one fan didn’t ignore.

“@REALStaceyDash You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” Tretista Kelverian, a fan, wrote on Twitter.

Stacey remained poised in the face of the criticism lobbed towards her, only replying, “My humble opinion…EVERYONE is entitled to one.”

Do you think Stacey was unfairly attacked on Twitter, HollywoodLifers?
