Actress Attacked For Race Due To Support Of Mitt Romney
(CNN) Actress Stacey Dash, star of the hit ’90s film “Clueless,” is getting a lot of flack for her endorsement of Mitt Romney in the November election.
Dash tweeted her Romney endorsement Sunday.
Almost instantly she was overwhelmed with a series of attacks, most racial.
“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” tweeted one critic.
“Wait stacey dash is voting for romney? you get a lil money and you forget that you’re black and a woman. two things romney hates,” tweeted another. “Still clueless,” quipped another.
The actress, who recently reunited with the “Clueless” cast, played Val on Season 1 of VH1’s “Single Ladies.” However, she did not return for Season 2, which premiered in May.
Dash didn’t seem to mind the criticism.
She then re tweeted two messages from other users: One tweet was from a concerned fan: “ALL ROMNEY Supporters, please follow&support @REALStaceyDash, it appears she’ll be voting for @MittRomney &she’s getting some heat over it!”
The other was from Mitt Romney himself: “Women have had enough of @BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again.”
Many people are saying this shows what happens when a black person voices supports anyone other than a Democrat during an election.
