Stacey Dash lashes out at Oprah for comparing Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin
Stacey Dash has become known for voicing her political opinions on Twitter — and when it comes to Oprah, the actress isn’t biting her tongue.
In a recent tweet, Dash posted a link to a Fox News article slamming Oprah for her comments comparing Emmett Till to the late Trayvon Martin and her statement that President Obama “shouldn’t be on Fox News every day.”
At the end of her tweet, Dash wrote, “Shame on you @Oprah.”
In the same tweet, the ex-Single Ladies star published a quote from Malcolm X, which read: “If you aren’t careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”
This isn’t the first time the conservative actress has ruffled feathers through her controversial comments on Twitter.
This June, Dash sent a tweet in support of celebrity Paula Deen in the midst of a racial scandal where the celebrity chef admitted to using the n-word, which ultimately led to some serious career setbacks.
“God does everything for a reason @Paula_Deen Only God can judge your heart BTW my daughter loves your show (only way she can get me to cook),” Dash wrote.
Dash has also addressed her political views after she publicly announced her endorsement of Republican candidate Mitt Romney over Barack Obama during the 2012 presidential election.
She wrote in a tweet: “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney.”
