Damon Dash gave social media a good laugh when he revealed that his cousin Stacey Dash would be appearing in his upcoming film Honor Up. News of Dash’s alleged involvement in the film came as a complete surprise as she took great lengths to distance herself from all things Black culture.
One person particularly tickled by Stacey Dash’s reportedly involvement in the film is ESPN host and proud #BlackGirlMagic representer Jemele Hill. Known for speaking her mind, Hill quickly took to Twitter writing, “Well, well, look who’s back. Running right back to a black audience after working overtime to shame black people daily on national television. Well done.”
Hill didn’t stop there. “I just find it really interesting Ms. Why Isn’t there a White History Month (yeah she said that) is constantly positioning herself with an audience she clearly despises, on some level,” she added.
Hill’s observations of Dash’s commentary on Black culture is pretty valid. During her stint on Fox News, Stacey Dash has done everything from call Maxine Waters a “buffoon,” say transgender people should use bushes for bathrooms, dispel the importance of Black History Month and refer to Jesse Williams as a “plantation slave” following his 2016 BET Humanitarian Award acceptance speech.
Despite reports of her involvement in the film that’s ironically set to be released in February aka Black History Month, Stacey Dash has recently spoken out denying any involvement in the upcoming film.
