Stacey Dash isn’t about to let anyone publicly diss her and get away with it! After being slammed by BET on Twitter, the ‘Clueless’ star has fired back with a scathing new blog post that blasts the network for lying to its audience! Read her passionate rant here and brace yourself — things get ugly!
Oh no she didn’t! Stacey Dash, 49, threw major shade at BET on Jan. 21 after the network publicly slammed the actress via social media the day prior. Now, Stacey is fighting back in a new blog post, in which she not only stands by her statement to abolish the network altogether, but also took their war of words to the next level by claiming that the channel lies to its African-American audience! Read her rationale behind the jarring accusations below!
“BET lies to American black people by telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind,” she wrote in a blog post titled “How BET Lies To Black People” posed on Jan. 21. “My problem goes back to the notion that every area of life needs to break down exactly according to demographic ratios except in those areas in which black people have decided they want to have their own space. I don’t have a problem with black people having their own space. I have a problem with the folks at BET absolutely freaking out when other institutions don’t match up to what they think is best.”
To recap, the war of words first kicked into high gear following a Jan. 20 sit-down between Stacey and the Fox News talk show, Fox & Friends. During the interview, the Clueless actress-turned-conservative pundit not only called the outrage over the Oscars boycott “ludicrous,” but also claimed that African-American-targeted institutions—such as BET, the Image Awards and holidays honoring black history—should no longer exist, calling them a “double standard.”
Needless to say, BET wasn’t too happy with the actress after that, and immediately responded by tweeting a photo of Stacey guest starring in an episode of The Game, which as you might recall, is a BET show. As it turns out, the actress actually had a reoccurring role on the series in the early 2000s, for which she was given a decent paycheck, according to the network. In their sassy response, BET called out this fact, while also asking for their paycheck back — you know, considering she dissed them and all. Burn! But of course Stacey had some fiery words of her own to share after the incredibly sassy tweet made headlines.
“Well, here’s the thing,” Stacey’s rebuttal began. “Thank you for reminding me, since most people have never heard of that show.” Ouch! “Why? It’s on BET.” Double ouch! But the star didn’t stop there. “Quick. Name the top shows on BET. Drawing a blank? I think I’ve made my point.” Mic drop.
Hey BET, don’t dish it out if you can’t take it! Stacey has proven that she won’t stand idly by while someone blasts her on the Internet. Although, now that Stacey has fired back with her own shots, she better watch her back too, as the network is likely to keep this feud going. So in other words, grab your popcorn everybody!
