Gabrielle Union to claimed to not know who Stacey Dash is…”Who’s Stacey Dash? Was she on Roc-A-Fella (Records)?” LOL!
Gabrielle Union vs Stacey Dash! A lot of African-American celebs are coming for Stacey Dash for calling for the end of BET and Black History month and calling Jada Pinkett a hypocrite for boycotting the 2016 Oscars (accused of racism for not having any black actors and actresses nominated). Some don’t claim her at all. That’s exactly what Gabrielle Union did when she was asked about Dash’s statements at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of her movie “The Birth of a Nation” a couple of days ago. “Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash? Is she like related to Dame Dash? Was she on Roc-A-Fella (Records)?” Gabrielle replied!
So what are Stacey Dash’s statements that have Black people so furious? Well, Dash said to Fox and Friends (the racist network in the world) that “and if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the (NAACP) Image Awards, where you’re only rewarded if you’re black.” Her statement comes after she was asked about the lack of black nominees for Academy Awards, in which Jada Pinkett and her husband Will Smith are boycotting (some other actors/actresses, including white ones have joined since).
Dash rant against BET continues when she wrote on her website that the network lies to Black people by telling them all White people are racist. “And they’re absolutely mortified that someone like me — an independent-thinking black woman — dares call their bluff.” she said.
Gabrielle Union went on to giving Stacey Dash a history lesson and telling the rest of America why BET and Black History Month are important, “The more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say.”
What do you make of the Saga between Stacey Dash, Jada Pinkett and now Gabrielle Union? Should she just be left alone or does she deserve what she’s getting?
