Ex-Single Ladies star Stacey Dash surprised many of her fans by tweeting her endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney this weekend.
The Clueless actress wrote: “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @MittRomney @TeamRomney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney pic.twitter.com/9HFUhWul”
The backlash from her followers was swift and succinct:
“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot.”
“Wait stacey dash is voting for romney? you get a lil money and you forget that you’re black and a woman. two things romney hates.”
Still, Dash is far from the only black celebrity lending her starpower to the Republican cause. Check out this slideshow of the some of the most prominent black conservative stars.
