Twitter users know how to throw a trolling party — and Stacey Dash is the guest of honor after her ouster at Fox News.
Stacey Dash, an occasional contributor on Fox — and an outspoken critic of Democrats, Barack Obama and groups like Black Lives Matter — reportedly is not returning to her role on “Out Numbered.” According to the Hollywood Reporter, executives “declined to renew the ‘Clueless’ actress’ contract.” Still, others say Stacey Dash was “fired,” with unconfirmed rumors that she had worn out her usefulness since the election is over.
Stacy Dash made her mark at Fox with her unrelenting — and early — support of then-candidate Donald Trump. Her contract began in 2014. Sources told THR the decision not to renew Dash’s contract was made months ago.

As Fox wrote, last year as officials at the Oscars came under fire for a lack of ethnic representation at the Academy Awards; Stacey Dash made an “uncomfortable” surprise appearance after a sketch on diversity. Celebs in attendance were snapped making frowns and gasps over Stacey’s presence. Twitter followed up with personal attacks, many expressing confusion and anger about Stacey’s rhetoric against blacks in general and her support of the GOP and its conservative platform.
Stacey took to her blog and spoke out against the backlash and her disdain for Black History Month. She touted her background as the “girl from the Bronx” who managed to improve her social standing by pulling herself up by her own bootstraps. To Dash, entitlement is not an honor.

“When they added ME to increase the diversity, I’m sure many black people rolled their eyes. I’m not ‘black enough,’ they say. But guess what? I’ve heard that all my life. I would rather be a free thinking, black than a cookie cutter black who thinks — and votes –- just like all my friends.”
So what’s in store for Stacey Dash’s future? It’s uncertain where the next phase of Stacey’s career the controversial television personality. However, as Inquisitr previously opined, it’s not likely Stacey will return to her former employer at the basic cable and satellite TV channel Black Entertainment Television. Reportedly, Dash has burned a few bridges at BET.
“There’s still the issue of Stacey Dash’s blog on Patheos.com. She uses Twitter to plug her blog posts often and they contain the same super conservative verbiage as her arguments on Fox News when she was employed there. Let’s just hope she doesn’t want to head back to BET because, after some of the jabs she took at her fellow African American actors while campaigning for the Republicans, there’s a pretty good chance that no one wants to see her there. If anyone wonders about the validity of that assessment, maybe Spike Lee can weigh in and tell us what he thinks of Stacey Dash.”
