Gabrielle Union is just like the rest of us: she can’t even deal with Stacey Dash. At the Sundance Film Festival premiere of “The Birth of a Nation” on Monday, Union was asked by an Associated Press reporter to give her thoughts on Dash’s controversial comments about the existence of Black History Month and BET on an episode of “Fox & Friends” last week.
At first Union said, “Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash?” She then added, “the more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say.”
Union’s thoughts are just the latest reaction to Dash’s clueless comments. (Even her cousin, Damon Dash, had some words about it.) Despite the backlash, the “Clueless” star isn’t backing down.
“I’m on Fox, because I refuse to back down,” Dash wrote in a blog posted Saturday. “I owe it to my son and daughter to at least try to work toward a world where black people can speak out on any matter they want without the fear of incredible backlash… It’s 2016. Let’s stop taking our marching orders from Democratic slave drivers. They have taken our votes and repaid us by ruining our colleges and large cities. They are responsible for #OscarsSoWhite.”
Got all that?
