BET Responds to Stacey Dash’s Call to Eliminate BET and Black History Month


BET Responds to Stacey Dash’s Call to Eliminate BET and Black History Month

Well, BET had a lot to say about the Dash’s remarks on their social media accounts. The network posted picture on their Instagram of the actress in an appearance she made on The Game back in 2009.

And just to make sure they covered all bases, they took to Twitter to question the validity of her intelligence. Both comments ignited an uproar on social media, which led to a community-wide drag of the actress. 

But Stacey didn’t just take the beating. She took to her blog to reinerate the her points she made: “I’ve written about this before, but apparently people are going nuts over what I said on Outnumbered today,” Dash wrote.

She also even brought up Morgan Freeman’s past comments about Black History Month. (In an old appearance on 60 Minutes, Freeman called the celebration “ridiculous,” saying, “You’re gonna relegate my history to a month?”
