Stacey Dash has received lots of harsh feedback after making some controversial comments regarding the all-white Oscars, Black History Month and BET.
Former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress, Janet Hubert, did not hold back when it came to her feelings regarding Dash, slamming her during an interview with The Huffington Post on Friday.
“Somebody needs to slap the little bit of black she got on her off of her, okay?” Hubert said. “Because girlfriend has worked on BET more than most actresses have. I think she’s just saying this kind of bull because she wants sensationalism.”
Hubert continued, “She’s working for Fox, and she needs a job, and she’s making a check, and she’s bringing controversy to herself. Stacey is a bit of a media ho.”
“I don’t feel anything for Stacey because she 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.”
Finally, Hubert has one very clear message for the Clueless actress: “Stacey, just dash away, honey.” Dash has since clarified her divisive comments.
In her blog, she explained that black history should be an integrated part of American history, rather than be relegated to a specific month of celebration.
Regardless, Hubert added that Dash’s ideas are a serious setback in the movement for racial equality.
