Stacey Dash: Fox News’ Token Black Chick
Remember when Stacey Dash endorsed GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s 2012 run for the White House in a patriotic one-piece…to the horror of left-leaning Americans of color?
The actress’ conservatism has been the subject of taunts and racially-charged abuse on Twitter ever since. Well, keep your pants on, ‘cuz the former Clueless star will soon be pissing off Black folks on an even more consistent basis: Dash’s ring-wing political views have landed her a job at the ultra-conservative Fox News Network.
Stacey has signed a deal to provide “cultural analysis and commentary” on the “fair and balanced” (*Cue the laugh track*) 24-hour news channel, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of News for Fox News, is happy to bring Dash aboard.
“Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints among her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates,” said Fox News executive vice-president of news Bill Shine. “We’re pleased to have her join Fox News.”
