Stacey Dash Demands Apology From ‘Twitter Haters,’ Gabrielle Union Calls Her ‘Crazy’

Stacey Dash believes the criticism she’s received for her recent comments calling for the elimination of Black History Month has been unfair, after Morgan Freeman expressed similar views.

“When I spoke out on Fox News and on my blog about the need to get rid of BET and Black History Month, all the same usual Twitter haters came out of the woodwork to troll me and say all sorts of disgusting things about me,” the 49-year-old actress wrote in a new blog post published on Monday. “Well, if you’re going to call me ignorant, stupid, and an Uncle Tom, you need to be intellectually honest and also call out Morgan Freeman.”

Dash pointed to a 2006 interview with 60 Minutes Freeman did with Mike Wallace, in which the Oscar winner called Black History Month “ridiculous.”

“You’re going to relegate my history to a month?” Freeman said at the time. “I don’t want a Black History Month. Black history is American history.”

  1. Two things: First thing: If she cannot handle the heat on the Internet, then she needs to unplug from the kitchen. Second thing: She does not get to compare herself, nor her statement, to Morgan Freeman because he was advocating for the expansion of African Americans as a part of the main subject--American history. She is not. She was trying to be cute and edgy, which is not the same as being serious.

    A lot of ugly things have come out of her pretty mouth. The insides do not match the outsides, for those who cannot see.
