"Clueless” actor-turned-controversial political pundit Stacey Dash has apologized for her past offensive comments, claiming she’d “lived her life being angry” but “that’s not who Stacey is now.”
Dash was an early endorser of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. She sparked outrage for using the Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre to boost the then-presidential hopeful and for suggesting Black History Month should be eliminated. In 2017, she backed Trump’s “very fine people on both sides” response to the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and was tweeting pro-Trump posts with the #MAGA hashtag until 2019.
Fox News suspended Dash in 2015 for claiming then-President Barack Obama “didn’t give a shit” about terrorism. It reportedly decided not to renew her contract the following year.
