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.
My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one.—

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.
