Stacey Dash Slams Jesse Williams’ BET Awards Black Lives Matter Speech
Stacey Dash took to her blog on Wednesday — slamming Jesse Williams for his Black Live Matters speech at the BET Awards.
Stacey Dash Calls Out Jesse Williams For BET Awards Speech
Williams’ acceptance speech last Sunday for the BET Humanitarian Award has been praised for bringing awareness to Black Lives Matter, however, Dash found the speech to be an attack.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: BET is keeping racism and segregation alive and this past Sunday’s awards show proves it,” Dash wrote in her Patheos blog post.
“Particularly the speech given by Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams, whose tirade after receiving the 2016 BET Humanitarian Award for his black activism was nothing short of an attack on white people,” she continued.
Dash went on to criticize Williams for even attending the award show, calling him a “HOLLYWOOD plantation slave!”
“Sorry, Mr Williams. But the fact that you were standing on that stage at THOSE awards tells people you really don’t know what your talking about,” the Clueless star said.
Dash is well known for her controversial statements and views regarding race and politics, and made it clear that she objects to Williams’ take on black injustice.
“That chip on the shoulders of people like you will weigh you down and keep you from flying free,” Dash wrote. “If anyone is GHETTO-IZING anyone, it’s people like you letting the BETs and other media outlets portray us in stereotypes.”
