Network posts pictures to remind “Clueless” actress she previously appeared on its programming
“Soooooo [Stacey Dash], can we get our check back… or nah?” BET posted to their official Instagram account, along with a picture of Dash on the BET show “The Game,” on which she appeared from 2009-2011.
They also reposted a picture of Dash from the 90’s favorite “Clueless,” along with the caption, “Aww dang. I loved you in ‘Clueless’. I had no idea that you actually were.”
On Wednesday, Dash appeared on Fox News to discuss the controversy surrounding the lack of minority nominees in this year’s Oscar nominees.
“We have to make up our minds, Dash said. “Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we don’t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black.”
“If it were the other way around, we’d be up in arms. It’s a double standard. There shouldn’t be a black history month,” she continued. “We’re Americans, period.”
The network had previously responded to Dash’s comments in a statement issued by BET Networks chairman and CEO Debra Lee.
“African-American contributions to American culture are countless and we cannot and should not wait for anyone to acknowledge them — we have to do it ourselves and we are proud that we can do our part,” the statement read. It went on to point to shows such as the BET Awards, BET Honors and Black Girls Rock as examples of ways the network has recognized black artists.
