Stacey Dash apologizes for the controversial opinions she expressed about Fox

Unsuspecting star and former Fox commentator Stacey Dash has apologized for the controversial opinions she has voiced in the past.

The 54-year-old is best known for her role as Dionne in the 1995 film and later worked for Fox News, supporting former President Donald Trump. However, it was the riots and demonstrations that took place at the Captiol in January that sparked a change for Dash.

“When that happened, I said, ‘OK, I’m done. I’m really done,'” said Dash. “Because I denounce senseless violence of any kind. What happened on January 6th was just horrific and stupid.”

Prior to the change of heart, Dash was disfellowshipped after a series of controversial comments and testimonies from Fox. After joining the network in 2014, she was temporarily suspended in 2015, infamously saying that former President Barack Obama did not give “as a” t “about terrorism”.

“There are things that I feel sorry for. Things I said that I shouldn’t have said the way I said them. They were very arrogant and proud and angry,” Dash said. “If anyone has ever felt about me the way I judged, I apologize.

“I’ve lived my life angry for what I was on Fox News … I was the angry, conservative black woman. And at that time in my life, it was who I was.”

Despite her support for Trump when he was president, she voted for Obama in 2008, but now doesn’t see herself as democratic. Dash identifies as “apolitical” but still holds some conservative values ​​like pro-life and is “not a feminist”.

“I don’t believe in identity politics. I don’t go around looking at someone and say, ‘Oh, that’s the color of your skin so it’s you’ or ‘You’re straight or gay so that’s you.’ I don’t judge people by the color of their skin or their sexual orientation. I’m not. “

“This idea that people think I come from a place of judgment with the things I believe in? No, it’s experience,” Dash said of her views.

“I’m coming out of the hood. The street codes are very conservative. If you’re not a hustler, if you don’t know how to be hectic, how to make money, you’re a lamb to slaughter.

“We have a new president,” she said of President Joe Biden. “As a supporter of Trump, I put myself in some kind of box that I don’t belong in. But he’s not the president. I’m going to give the president we have a chance right now.”

The Daily Mail was the first to report on Dash’s new political stance.
