As you’ll recall, Stacey caused a lot of controversy for her opinions on race relations, women’s rights, and other issues. Remember when she called Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams a “Hollywood plantation slave” after his 2016 BET Awards speech? Or how about when she said transgender people should have to pee in bushes instead of using bathrooms? Yeah, we didn’t forget either. We hate to say it, but we understand why there hasn’t been an outpouring of support for Stacey.
