BET issued a rebuke after actress and Fox News contributor Stacey Dash called for the elimination of the African-American-focused cable net as a step toward her vision of a fully integrated society.
Dash also advocated the elimination of Black History Month.
BET took to social media to ask Dash for its check back — presumably in jest — pointing out that Dash appeared on the BET series “The Game.”
The cable channel also posted a link to a photo gallery on its website headlined “Every Time Stacey Dash Proved She Was Clueless,” featuring summaries of a series of media appearances by Dash. The gallery showcases the “Clueless” star’s positions on subjects including closing the gender pay gap (she’s against it) and North Carolina’s voter ID law (she’s for it).
One caption includes the observation: “She thinks there needs to be a white history month too, since, you know, our ancestors apparently fought for nothing. ‘Clueless’ indeed.”
