Stacey Dash Gets Heat for Supporting Paula Deen on Twitter
After Paula Deen’s tearful apology on Today this morning, Stacey Dash has joined her small group of supporters. Dash starred in Clueless with Alicia Silverstone and had this to say.
“God does everything for a reason @Paula_Deen Only God can judge your heart BTW my daughter loves your show (only way she can get me to cook)”
After tweeting her sort of support, followers began to attack Dash. One responded, “[M]an you really are Clueless,” and “You have no d— idea about the power of words. You should stop using them.”
Stacey Dash was under heat during the presidential election last year when she openly endorsed Mitt Romney. Once again, followers talked about the issues of race and gender in her decision.
