Actress Janet Hubert heavily disagrees with Stacey Dash’s recent comments about Black History Month and the BET Awards, but she also thinks it’s likely Dash’s comments were inspired by her employment at Fox News.
“Somebody needs to slap the little bit of black she got on her off of her, okay? The little bit of black she got on her, off of her, because girlfriend has worked on BET more than most actresses have,” Hubert told HuffPost Live during a recent interview.
She then accused Dash of saying what she did because of the platform she was speaking on.
“I think she’s just saying this kind of bull because she wants sensationalism and she’s working for Fox and she needs a job and she’s making a check,” she said. “And she’s bringing controversy to herself. Stacey is a bit of a media ho.”
Hubert added that she personally believes we still BET and the BET awards.
“[Dash] absolutely puts the struggle way back, way back. It’s just rude and wrong,” she said. “If we didn’t have BET, if we didn’t have those kinds of awards, we’d have nothing. We’d have nothing to honor those wonderful performances. And as far as Black History Month is concerned, I don’t even need to touch that because it’s so stupid.”
