Fox News announced Wednesday that actress Stacey Dash has been hired as a contributor to provide cultural analysis and commentary across the network’s daytime and prime time programming.
The news is not going over too well on the left, particularly in the black community — Dash is of African-American and Mexican descent.
“Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints amongst her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates,” Executive Vice President of Programming Bill Shine said in a statement. “We’re pleased to have her join Fox News.”
Dash, best known for her role in the 1995 movie “Clueless,” has drawn scorn from the left before, having come out in support of Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election — she was outspoken about the reaction to that decision.
“Perhaps I publicly endorsed Romney from a slightly naïve place, thinking that I could speak my voice without being criticized in such racially charged and hateful tones,” she wrote in an editorial for TMZ.
The conservative actress was in the news earlier this month when she took to Twitter in support of the movie “Moms’ Night Out,” a family comedy portraying women in conventional roles.
Wednesday’s announcement brought out more of the “racially charged hateful tones” Dash spoke of, as seen on Twitter. While many of the tweets are being deleted by users once they realize their hatred is on full display, Twitchy.com captured a few:
