In a recent red carpet interview at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of the “The Birth of a Nation,” Gabrielle Union was asked to give her thoughts on Dash’s comments about Black History Month and BET.
Union responded sarcastically, “Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash? Is she like related to Dame Dash? Was she on Roc-A-Fella? I heard of a crazy lady once, but I don’t know what her name is.”
Gabby also expressed that the BET Awards remain necessary because of the lack of diversity in mainstream awards.
“The more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say,” she continued.
Gabrielle Union’s response comes after the Fox News correspondent stated, “If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the (NAACP) Image Awards, where you’re only rewarded if you’re black.”
Dash also wrote on her website that BET lies to black Americans by telling them the rest of country is racist; “And they’re absolutely mortified that someone like me — an independent-thinking black woman — dares call their bluff.”
