Dash tweeted pictures of herself at a California polling station.
Despite going through Twitter hell weeks ago for voicing her support for presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Stacey Dash pressed forward with voting this week.
The actress tweeted photos of herself voting early in California. “Today’s the last day to register to vote in CA- go to LAvote.net or the registrars recorder office to vote,” the tweet read.
After announcing her support for Romney, many of Dash’s Twitter followers exploded in anger. One follower even suggested she kill herself. Another tweeted, “You’re an unemployed Black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot.”
Dash has showed no signs of retracting her Romney support, despite the hatred. “I believe him. I watched him, the Governor and his wife, on Meet the Press,” said Dash on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight. “They spoke to me, they seemed authentic and genuine… I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character.”
Her Hollywood peers aren’t taking her Romney support so well. Vivica A. Fox has been the most outspoken one yet, telling The Grio, “She’s entitled to her own opinion but it was just surprising that first of all she was a Republican, and that she did it the way that she did. Most politicians when you support them, you try to support them with class, you don’t need to do a swimsuit shoot.”
