Actress and talk show host, Stacey Dash, has been let off by Fox Network. The network decided not to extend her contract this last fall and the news has caused quite the reaction on social media.
The actress has always been one to share her views about movements and causes – like the #BlackLivesMatter – and also show her support for controversial issues, like campaigning for Donald Trump. In the past, she has also been quoted as saying black people should move on from past history of racism and slavery.
In 2015, she was suspended temporarily from the network for swearing on-air in a rant about Former US President Barack Obama. In 2016, she caused more controversy over her harsh comments on transgender issues, as well as Middle Eastern immigration into the U.S. following the Orlando nightclub shooting.
Social media has since reacted to this news. See some reactions

Let what has happened to Stacey Dash be a lesson to us all. The enemy will use you to get in power then dispose of you when they get power

Let Stacey Dash being fired from Fox be a lesson about the perils of thinking that pandering to white supremacy will save you. It won’t.
