There are a lot of African American conservatives out there that believe Mitt Romney can lead us into a better future. They haven’t lost confidence in President Obama because they never backed him in the first place. Celebrities were a major help to Obama’s campaign as well, and they have already reached out to him with major fundraising events. But now the Republicans have an African American celebrity that is willing to back them.
Stacey Dash of “Clueless ” fame is now being seen as clueless for stepping out of the woodwork to back Mitt Romney. Nicki Minaj’s lyrics in the song “Mercy”, “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney,” were confused for her endorsement of Mitt Romney, but nothing could be further from the truth. But Stacy Dash wants to be clear that the Republican presidential candidate definitely has her support.
As you may have guessed, her endorsement has garnered her some bad press from her fans and others after they saw her tweet:
“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.@MittRomney @TeamRomney #mittromney#VOTE #voteromney pic.twitter.com/9HFUhWul”
They went in on Dash pretty bad. Some of the comments went like this, according to the Huffington Post:
“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” tweeted one critic.
“Wait stacey dash is voting for romney? you get a lil money and you forget that you’re black and a woman. two things romney hates,” tweeted another.
“Still clueless,” quipped another.
But she dismissed their comments simply saying it was her own “humble opinion.”
