Stacey Dash Slams Kanye West’s ‘Rape’ Comment
Stacey Dash isn’t too pleased about Kanye West‘s use of the word “rape” when it comes to him describing the paparazzi.
The former ‘Clueless’ star and current Fox News contributor shared her thoughts on Fox News’ ‘Outnumbered’ after West expressed outrage over the media and his treatment using the words “rape” and “violation.”
On July 4, West performed at the Wireless Festival in England where he was met with boos from the crowd while going on an almost 20-minute rant during one of his sets.
“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherf—ers following me,” he said on stage. “Sex is great when you and your partner are like, ‘Hey, this is what we both want to do.’ But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what is that called? That’s called rape. That is called violation.”
Here’s Stacy’s response:
“For Kanye to say ‘rape,’ maybe he needs to spend some time on Rikers Island, go to Rikers for a little while, and then he’ll know what rape is,” she said (quotes via Huffington Post). “I don’t get celebrities not understanding that the paparazzi are doing their job … I don’t think [celebrities are] out of touch, I just don’t think they’re understanding what the business is.”
