The actress continues to stir the pot.
Stacey Dash isn’t backing down or being quiet.
“I say, BRAVO!,” the Clueless star writes. I don’t care about the race of the actors portraying historical figures and I can’t wait to see Joseph’s portrayal of Jackson… It’ll be amazing as long as he plays him truthfully and authentically.”
Fiennes was announced as the actor chosen to play Jackson in an upcoming comedy, Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon, based on a reported road trip taken by Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Dash, who has been in hot water lately for comments slandering Black History Month and BET, added that Hollywood shouldn’t assign roles “based on color.”
“This decision throws that white-only card out the window. They can’t look at black actors and say, ‘Sorry this role is Caucasian-only.’ Roles should not be dictated by race.”
She added that what the world needs is more of this type of “diversity and thinking outside the box.”
Ok, girl, whatever you say.
