The conversation surrounding Stacey Dash’s recent controversial comments continue. Actress Gabrielle Union is the latest celebrity to disagree with the comments that the political commentator made questioning Black History Month and existence of BET.
While promoting ‘The Birth of a Nation’ at the Sundance Film Festival, Union was asked about Dash’s comments, to which she responded:
Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash? Is she like related to Dame Dash? Was she on Roc-A-Fella (Records)?
She went on to say that the BET Awards remain necessary because of the lack of diversity in mainstream awards.
The more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say.

Union currently stars on BET’s Being Mary Jane. As previously reported, last week, Dash stated on ‘Fox & Friends’ that people need to make up their minds between segregation and integration. See her comments below.
