Fox News signs Stacey Dash as contributor
It was only a matter of time before Stacey Dash landed on Fox News.
The actress, who routinely makes waves with her conservative views, has been hired by the network as a contributor. She will provide “cultural analysis and commentary across various daytime and primetime programs,” according to the announcement.
During the 2012 presidential election, Dash received heavy criticism for endorsing Republican candidate Mitt Romney on her personal Twitter account. Since then, she has come under fire for supporting Paula Deen during the celebrity chef’s racial slur scandal, slamming Jay Z and Beyonce for visiting Cuba, and speaking out against Oprah Winfrey’s comments about Trayvon Martin’s death.
“Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints amongst her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates — we’re pleased to have her join Fox News,” Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming for the network, said in a statement.
Dash is best known for her role as Dionne in the 1995 hit film Clueless. She has also appeared in Renaissance Man, Mo’ Money, and View from the Top.
