Stacey Dash is staying on the defense.

After her now infamous appearance on Fox & Friends earlier this week where she said she believes Black History Month and BET shouldn’t exist, Dash penned an open letter at the network for “throwing shade” at her following her remarks.

Did Stacey Dash Just Say There Shouldn’t Be a Black History Month?

“They reminded me — and the rest of America — that I appeared on a show called The Game, which appeared on BET,” she wrote in a blog post on Patheos. “Well, here’s the thing. Thank you for reminding me, since most people have never heard of that show.”

Dash had a recurring role on the sitcom in 2009 and said that while she is “thankful for all the acting jobs [she’s] had,” she is looking “forward to the day when people don’t self-segregate based on skin color, while loudly complaining about a segregated society.”

Her remarks extended on everything from the controversy surrounding the upcoming Academy Awards and even came for BET President of programming Stephen Hill.

Dash’s “clapback” concluded with the sentiment that a Black woman such as her can’t be held down.

“BET lies to American Black people by telling them that the rest of America is racist, so stick close to your own kind. Anything that promotes segregation is bad! And they’re absolutely mortified that someone like me — an independent-thinking Black woman — dares call their bluff.”

Whatever you say, girl.
