She’s Back At It: Stacey Dash Drags Oprah Winfrey Again, But This Time Its Even Worse
Stacey Dash may have been dragged to hell for criticizing Oprah Winfrey last night, but it doesn’t look like she plans to back down anytime soon. Although Oprah impressed the vast majority of people who had the opportunity to hear her speak at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, apparently Stacey Dash wasn’t one of them. Almost immediately after the speech, speculation about Oprah running for president in 2020 sparked a media firestorm. But the Clueless actress was determined to detour fans from even thinking of supporting Oprah. She slammed the billionaire businesswoman with a link to a fake news article, filled with less-than-favorable rumors about Ms. Winfrey and now she’s back at it again.
Not Backin’ Down:
Now, Stacey Dash is raising an argument similar to Seal’s. In a hella long open letter, she’s attacking the former talk show host for her relationship with Harvey Weinstein. Although Winfrey, herself, is a victim of sexual abuse, Dash seems to believe that she was aware of Weinstein’s alleged disturbing actions, which is why she refuses to back down from what she believes. Although she offered no proof of Oprah actually ‘knowing about Weinstein,’ once again, she’s still defending her previous stance. She also defended men who have been wrongfully accused of assault:
“I won’t walk back what I believe. Oprah the homecoming queen, prom queen and class president knew. Meryl, the high school drama star knew. Most of those women wearing black knew. The class clown, Seth McFarland knew. He joked about it a few years ago on the Oscars, Hollywood’s equivalent of the prom. You know how I can say this? BECAUSE I KNEW. So how “clueless” am I? I knew enough when meeting Harvey Weinstein, to bring a male chaperone and it paid off as he did make a move on me. My chaperone blocked him and said, “Not this one.” … My chaperone knew.”
Again, although Dash claims an alleged sexual assault attempt, by Weinstein, was blocked in her encounter, she still never provided proof to back up her claim that Oprah knew about what Weinstein reportedly did with women behind closed doors. Moving on…
Of course Stacey Dash had a few things to say about singer, Seal. Initially, it seemed like the two were on the Oprah bashing train together, but Seal quickly retracted his statement after backlash and threw Dash under the bus for siding with him. But Dash is making one thing clear. She won’t be going the same route Seal did, because she meant what she said:
“Seal spoke up. He upset the Homecoming, Prom Queen and Class President, Oprah. Seal walked back what he had to say. Fine.”
“Seal’s entitled to his opinion, whichever one he chooses to support or retract. With me, the use of his “words” was done by an overzealous assistant who now knows better. However, I stand firm on my own belief that the kids at the cool table knew.”
As expected, Stacey Dash’s words have been met with opposition from Oprah Winfrey fans. She may want to tread lightly, because if Oprah decides to run, she could be fighting an uphill, political battle for the next couple years…one that Dash would inevitably lose, based on her non-proven allegations against Oprah.
