Stacey Dash Takes Heat For Supporting Mitt Romney

| October 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

Stacey Dash known for starting in the hit movie “Clueless” recently tweeted about her support for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, together with a patriotic bathing suit image of herself.

However her political opinion has grown to become the display of vicious online attacks, mostly expressing blunt distaste that she isn’t supporting President Obama and race is almost certainly a key motivator behind the online abuse.

“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” one Twitter user wrote, while @Black Voice wrote, “Stacey Dash had a perm since birth. I knew I couldn’t trust her.. lol.”

They also accused the actress of “voting for white supremacy,” declaring she “is white with a dark tan,” as well as calling Dash a lot of unpleasant names.

A small number of Obama supporters essentially went even further as to motivate “the old hag” to “kill herself.” One of the suicide encourager shows up as a doctor as well as politically proactive Democrat living in Washington D.C., and also although he reportedly has already deleted the inflammatory “kill yourself” tweet, it was snagged by social media news site, Twitchy.com.   Nonetheless Dash appears to be taking the backlash in stride.   “My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one,” she tweeted in response.

But also the 46-year-old’s plug for Romney pulled plenty of applause, too. “Thank you for being willing to think for yourself despite what your haters have to say,” tweeted a user, while another user noted, “You can NEVER, EVER (did I say never?) NEVER leave the Dem party if you r Black. Once you do, the name calling begins.”
