Stacey Dash Campus
Rape Remarks Sends
Twitter in an Outrage
Stacey Dash's latest comment regarding campus rape has sparked controversy.
The 48-year-old Cluesless (yes, there are many jokes to be made) star sent Twitter users into an outrage this week while discussing the University of Virginia’s decision to order sorority members to avoid frat parties in association with the weekend’s big recruitment drive. The actress gave her two cents:
“Ridiculous,” Dash told today’s episode of Outnumbered. “And I think the girls, I think it’s a good thing, for the good girls, to you know … not be told, ‘stay home, be safe,’” Dash continued. "The other bad girls bad women—or the ones who like to be naughty might go out and play and and get hurt.”
Currently there has been a growing backlash at UVA. Numerous students said the request to avoid frat parties suggested the sorority members were unable to make proper decisions themselves. Well … Stacey seems to agree with the latter.
"But the other thing about this is," she stated, "It then blames the alcohol instead of the person who over drinks, so you know, it's like, the same thing with guns. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Alcohol doesn't get you drunk, you get yourself drunk."
And … here comes the twitter outrage:
#StacyDash needs to be relevant bc she hasn't been since "Clueless" circa 1995. But 2 say rape victims are bad girls who are naughty.. sick!— Sabrina (@bronzeangel769) January 31, 2015
