It was not for stealing boxes.
Well, Stacey Dash will be joining the unemployment line after getting fired on her day off.
On Sunday, it was announced that Dash is one of the few contributors whose contract was not renewed with Fox News. The actress, an early and vocal supporter of Trump, signed with Fox back in 2014. Reps told The Hollywood Reporter that the decision not to renew Dash’s contract was made last fall.
At the moment, the actress’ Twitter still lists her as a Fox News contributor. Dash made the leap from acting––her last major roles being Sharknado 4 and YouTube Red’s The Thinning––to politics after throwing her support behind Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in 2012. In 2015, Dash was temporarily suspended for swearing during an on-air rant about Barack Obama and last year, she referred to Jesse Williams as a ”plantation slave” following his moving speech during the BET Awards.
