Actress Stacey Dash: BET lies to black people

"I think it's the height of hypocrisy that Stacey Dash would say that there should be no BET when she had a recurring role on [The Game]", Hostin said.

While Dash's comments created a firestorm of criticism, she's sticking to her guns with a piece entitled "How BET Lies to Black People". And, Stacey Dash has already responded to BET’s comments, especially their snipe about her work on The Game, in a blog post.

Well, the TV network is back at it today with BET Jams trolling Stacey Dash by playing music videos she's featured in with the hashtag #NeverForget.

In what appears to be a savage gesture toward the TV show Stacey once made a starring appearance on, Dash has attempted to turn the tables on BET and claim that nobody watches them, nor did they watch the show that she once appeared on.

Dash, who was suspended from Fox for two weeks last month for using an obscenity in a description of President Barack Obama, wrote on her website that most people have never heard of "The Game" because it's on BET.

But guess what? In spite of the pushback that she got regarding her views from BET and other notable personalities such as the cast of "The View", Dash is still justifying her stance. Name the top shows on BET.

Dash then went on to criticize BET exec Stephen Hill, who called out the Oscar nominations for not representing the ethnicities of moviegoers. Since the announcement of the Oscars nominees, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite has been trending on various social media outlets.

She wants us to understand that she has no problem with Black people owning their own lane.

Stacey Dash attends the "American Sniper" premiere December 15, 2014, in NY. "And they're absolutely mortified that someone like me - an independent-thinking black woman - dares call their bluff". Dash also made a point to note that if there were channels or award shows that openly declared themselves to be for white people only “we’d be up in arms. "Anything that promotes segregation is bad!" Of course, that could be out of context and just how it appeared on her blog post.

Dash's incident began on Fox and Friends while talking about the discussions among actors boycotting the award ceremony for not having any black nominees.
