Talk Show Host Stacey Dash Fired from Fox News after two years of Service
Sad news for Stacey Dash’s fans! She has been fired from her work at Fox News after serving for two years.She must have been fired due to her unpleasing activities while she was working on Fox
Dash is yet to make any statements about her departure from Fox.
She didn’t make an on-air appearance since September, and the network didn’t deem it necessary to renew her contract. It has not been disclosed why her contract for 2017 was not renewed.
Fifty-year-old Stacey Dash made her debut on the Fox network in 2014.
While she was working for Fox News, she often made headlines due to her controversial remarks. In December 2015, while then President Barack Obama gave the speech on terrorism, she expressed her thoughts openly in which she cursed on-air.
"I didn't feel any passion from him," she said. "I feel like he could give a s---, excuse me, he could care less."
The senior executive vice president of Fox News, Bill Shine then said,
“ Stacey Dash made comments that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air. Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language."
For this, she was temporarily suspended for two weeks.
However, even after the suspension, she made it clear from her Twitter post that she was unapologetic and was ready to face the consequence.
Consequences. Some of us have to pay them. Gladly.— Stacey Dash (@REALStaceyDash) December 7, 2015
Back in 2016, Dash again caused an outrage; making a racial statement. She said,
“we should not have channels geared towards African- American if we don't want segregation.We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don't want segregation, then we need to rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the (NAACP) Image Awards where you're only awarded if you're black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It's a double standard."
Dash also suggested that there shouldn’t be Black History Month because "we're Americans. Period. That's it."
