Stacey Dash could’ve never imagined the backlash she would face after tweeting support for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, with the elections just a few weeks away.
“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future,” the stunning Hollywood beauty wrote in a post that was accompanied by a patriotic Twitpic with her in front of an American flag wearing a red dress.
Dash, 46, made a name for herself in the 1990s in movies like “Mo’ Money” with comedian Damon Wayans and “Clueless” with Alicia Silverstone. Most recently, she played Val Stokes in the first season of VH1’s drama “Single Ladies” but did not return for the second season.

The “Clueless” star took a ton of heat on Twitter from Obama supporters, many of whom bashed the African-American actress for not supporting the president in his reelection. “@REALStaceyDash You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” Tretista Kelverian wrote on Twitter in response.
“I guess Clueless star Stacey Dash endorsing Mitt Romney shows that she is indeed clueless,” Just Plain Mary chimed in.
Some unlikely figures rose to her defense, however. Politically minded rapper Talib Kweli — who’s set to hit the “RapFix Live” couch this Wednesday — supported Dash’s right to express herself, even if he himself supports Barack.
“[Am] I the only one that finds it hilarious that Stacey Dash supports Romney? Y’all mad? That makes it funnier to me,” Talib wrote on the social-networking site.
But while the entire Internet seemed to take a side, Dash remained graceful through it all. “My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one,” she wrote.
“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future,”
It’s cool for people to vote however they like, whatever, have an opinion…but the way people talk about this election is crazy. Extended fam and some random weirdos are all on Facebook and other spots having a meltdown. Like if Obama’s elected the sun won’t ever come out and they’ll be homeless in the next year. SMH…and they aren’t even all YT’s…they all have crazy perspectives on this shit
‘Famed rapper RZA, who will soon be releasing his directorial debut The Man With the Iron Fists, is continuing his push into filmmaking with a feature adaptation of Happy!, Grant Morrison’s latest comic.
The site describes the film as centering on “Nick Sax, a scummy corrupt ex-cop and hitman. After a hit goes bad and Sax is left gravely injured, he is suddenly able to see Happy, a cheerful little blue horse who won’t give in to adversity, no matter what unpleasant obstacles come in the way. Days before Christmas, Sax teams up with the saccharine horse to the save the life of a troubled kid and maybe find redemption amid the squalor of his city.”
Still DEAD @ RZA thinking he bout to set it off with a cap gun in Derailed. I had tears in my eyes laughing, thinking about that scene. Then I get violently angry when I think about a kizza poppin him while trying to help another kizza.
Him calling Kramer his ‘nigga’ in Funny People wasn’t the wave either.
Let him get that paper though. I want to see Iron Fists.
