Stacey Dash quoted a line from Malcom X on Twitter last Friday and included a link to a Fox News story calling out Oprah Winfrey out for making the comparison.
“If you aren’t careful, The newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing ~ Malcolm X,” she tweeted, before adding, “Shame on you @oprah.”
According to the story:
The 46-year-old actress was apparently reacting to comments Oprah made during an interview for her latest film, Lee Daniels’ The Butler, when she said the Martin and Till cases were similar and then implied that President Barack Obama was smart not to go on Fox News in the same way he’s smart not to do a cameo in her movie when the idea was first broached by The Butler‘s director,Lee Daniels (who, despite reports from conservative outlets, never got up the nerve to ask Obama to appear in the film).
“That’s why Obama is our president, because he knows not to go and get himself in a movie and be on Fox News every day,” she said.
Does anybody even really take Stacey Dash that seriously anymore? We doubt Oprah even responds. via E! News
