Gabrielle Union is not going to stand for Stacey Dash dissing BET, and she made that very clear when she refused to even say her name and called Stacey a ‘crazy lady.’ Check out the video, right here!
Oh my god, Gabrielle Union, 43, just dealt a huge burn to Stacey Dash, 49! The actress was not pleased with the political commentator slamming BET and Black History Month, and she made it clear by stiffing her on the red carpet. See Gab call Stacey a “crazy lady” here!
Gabrielle looked gorgeous on the red carpet at the premiere of The Birth of a Nation on Jan. 25, but her interview was even better than her flawless hair and makeup. Gabby shut down Stacey’s comments about needing to get rid of Black History Month and the BET channel in the most amazing way possible.
“Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash?” she asked mockingly when an AP reporter asked bout the controversy on the red carpet. Gabby clearly knew who Stacey is and all about the controversial issue, because she followed up with an awesome speech about the importance of specialized channels and awards shows for minority groups. And she didn’t limit it to racial groups, but anyone who isn’t widely represented.
“If you don’t see yourself reflected in the mainstream awards, you tend to create your own,” explained Gabrielle. “And until there’s no longer a need for that, I’ll celebrate the Almas the same way I celebrate the Country Music Awards and the Image Awards.” Preach, girl!
To top off her amazing response with a cherry, Gab included one last diss for Stacey. “The more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say.” We love how perfectly Gabby shut down Stacey’s hateful comments. Keep up the good work, Gab!
