Stacey Dash - Unlikely American Actress Stacey Dash Supports Romney, Sparking Controversy
Although everyone is, of course, entitled to their own opinion, it certainly is surprising and disappointing, when anyone with any kind social or political sway endorses a political candidate with a swimsuit and American flag, yet managing to entirely neglect any kind of political or policy, or indeed any ideological opinion to support that support. However, this is precisely what Stacey Dash, actress in the 90s comedy 'Clueless', has done in her support of Mitt Romney- to abject outrage.
Replies on Twitter have been rather harsh. One tweeter stating: "You're an unemployed black woman endorsing [MittRomney.] You're voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot." and another saying Dash "joins other celebrities who haven't had a hit in the 21st Century on board the Romney Titanic. Good thing silicon floats" in reference to her appendages that seem to have grown rather a lot in recent years.
Laron Wise, another African-American republican, spoke in defence of Dash, quoted on DigTriad, saying "Life isn't black and white. We need to get rid of that... We need to focus on who's going to help us in the future". Indeed, it's racist to criticise Dash simply due to the contrast between the colour of her skin and her political views. However, if Stacey Dash starts supporting things without the use of her breasts, then perhaps she'd have more people agreeing with her. Of course, if Romney had something better to say, then perhaps Dash would have something of greater value to refer to than a photo of her in a swimsuit...
