Fox News has declined to renew the contract of one of their most controversial voices and vocal Trump supporters – Stacey Dash.
The Clueless star was with the network as early as 2014 and was involved in various controversies due to her conservative views, including saying President Obama’s policies made Black people “uneducated”, using the Pulse nightclub shooting to propel Donald Trump’s agenda and suggesting that Black History Month should be removed because there’s no White History Month.
The decision to cut ties with Dash came last fall, according to The Hollywood Reporter, as she hasn’t been seen on air since September.
The irony hasn’t been lost on anyone that Dash’s relevance instantly evaporated once Donald Trump made it to the White House. It almost makes one think that she was being used.
Twitter was quick to jump on the moment.
