If you thought Clint Eastwood and Nicki Minaj (okay, we’re still a little unsure about Nicki) were the only celebs to support Mitt Romney, you thought wrong! Clueless star and Celebrity Circus contestant Stacey Dash is also a fan of this year’s Republican ticket. That’s right…there’s officially three celebs willing to admit that they are not liberals. That has got to be a record!
Stacey Dash has never been viewed as a particularly controversial celebrity, but all that has changed in light of her support for Mitt Romney. The actress recently ignited a huge Twitter firestorm by posting her voting plans (along with a sexy photo) online: “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @MittRomney @TeamRomney #mittromney #VOTE#voteromney.”
The criticism arrived almost immediately, with some users going so far as to post surprisingly racist remarks about the celeb. Others were happy to invoke the name of Stacey’s most popular movie in their responses. For example, one Twitter user responded, “Still Clueless.”
Stacey knows she’s taking heat for her support of Romney, but she’s not about to back down. Following the huge Twitter controversy, she reignited the flames with yet another tweet: “My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one.” She then shared her “humble opinion” again by retweeting Romney’s observation, “Women have had enough of @BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again.”
What do you think of Stacey Dash throwing her hat in with the Romney campaign? Is she deserving of all the recent criticism? Or do you wish celebs would stay quiet about politics and focus on the Hollywood scene? We know you have an opinion, so share it below!
