Stacey Dash Speaks Out About Supporting Mitt Romney and the Harsh Tweets That Came Along

Stacey Dash

I think people need to get over the fact that Stacey Dash is a republican. Like she said, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Just make sure to vote and do your part. 

The Clueless actress recently spoke out after being attacked on Twitter for supporting Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. 



Stacey tweeted the above image of herself with the message, "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future"; after which she was criticized by fans. Some Twitter messages went as far as telling Stacey to "kill herself" for supporting Romney.

Stacey appeared on Piers Morgan's CNN show Tuesday night for an interview over the tweet; telling the British host why she's supporting the Governor over Barack Obama, who she voted for in 2008.

"I would say because of the state of the country, and I want the next four years to be different," she says. 


"I believe him...I watched him, the Governor and his wife, on 'Meet The Press.'...They spoke to me, they seemed authentic and genuine."

When asked if she feels offended by the harsh tweets, she says, "I just feel that, you know, as a country, this is my choice. This is the man I want to lead my country. It is my right as an American citizen. It’s my Constitutional right to have my choice of who I want to vote for for President. And I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character."
 

Stacey replied to all the harsh tweets and said,  "My humble opinion... EVERYONE is entitled to one."

Morgan also asked her how she felt about the state of political discourse in the U.S. as it pertained to her being both black and an actress.

"[I]t tells me that... the state of our country is that we are not united. You know? We need to be united, and we all need to understand that we’re all capable of achieving the American dream... but that has to be something that is self-realized."


"And also to demonize someone for achieving the American dream is unfair."

"The fury, I really don't understand the fury," she told Piers. "I don't understand it. I don't get it...I was shocked, saddened. Not angry. Saddened and really shocked. But you know what, you can't expect everyone to agree with you."

  1. I agree though. I also don't agree that black people think other black people HAVE to vote for Obama. Little do people realize, more white people voted for Obama than did black. People need to vote because of what they believe in, not for the color of skin. Let her make her own decisions regardless of how we feel. Maybe in her situation Romney is the best choice....
