Stacey Dash Apologizes For Working at Fox News And Supporting Trump
Actress and former Fox News pundit Stacey Dash is now denouncing Donald Trump and distancing herself from the conservative network.
During an interview with DailyMailTV on Wednesday, Dash claimed the news outlet casted her as an “angry Black woman.”
She said “There are things that I am sorry for. Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them."
Dash claimed that anger led to her mistakes.
“I realized in 2016 that anger is unsustainable and it will destroy you. I made a lot of mistakes because of that anger."
“There are things that I am sorry for. Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them. They were very arrogant and prideful and angry. And that’s who Stacey was, but that’s not who Stacey is now. Stacey’s someone who has compassion, empathy.”
In 2015, Fox News suspended Dash for using profanity in reference to then-President Obama while on air. Just months after the incident, she joined Chris Rock on stage during the Oscars to poke fun at the backlash she was receiving for her hardline comments as a Fox contributor.
Some of her most notable comments include suggestions to end Black History Month and shutdown BET in the interest of equality.
But now, the "Clueless" actress is attempting to turn a new leaf. In the interview with DailyMailTV, she took aim at Trump’s role in the insurrection of January 6. Additionally, Dash apologized for the pain she had caused and vowed to leave politics.
“I’m not a victim of anyone,” she said. “Working for Fox at the time, that was my job. I did my job from the place I was at. Stacey now would never work at Fox, would never work for a news network or be a news contributor.”
