Remember that cult classic movie, ‘Clueless,’ which starred Stacey Dash released back in the 90s?
Yeah, me neither, but I thought I’d give it a try. In that particular role, Dash played a teenager who was indeed “clueless” about real life situations and scenarios. The problem was, she wasn’t acting… or at least we just all assumed that she was.
Based on her recent twitter antics involving her endorsement of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the actress formerly known as Val on Single Ladies really has NO CLUE about what’s going on in the political arena.
After the endorsement, Dash received numerous tweets responding to her shocking statement.
Even other celebs chimed in with their disappointment but besides that fact that Stacey’s endorsement made her the target of several nasty tweets, it was Dash who benefited the most because now we’re all talking about her again.
[Sidebar: Oh... and her timing was impeccable considering that the official video for "Life of the Party," the song she recorded a few months ago, was just released.]
Actor Samuel L. Jackson tweeted the following in response to Dash:
Dash is certainly making the most of her very public opinion…. she recently appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” to discuss the reactions to her endorsement.
“The fury, I really don’t understand the fury,” she told Piers Morgan.
“I don’t understand it. I don’t get it…I was shocked, saddened. Not angry. Saddened and really shocked. But you know what, you can’t expect everyone to agree with you.” (source)
Voting is a personal decision, but when you put it out there in the universe in writing for all to see, you and your tweets are fair game.
Yes… Stacey’s entitled to her opinion, but I find it quite coincidental that her controversial “opinion” comes just hours after the new video was released for that song she recorded a few months ago to launch her new music career…
Was Dash speaking out to gain some much needed FREE PRESS?
If so… it worked!
