Stacey Dash is sitting in the timeout corner after being suspended by Fox News, USA Today reports. Dash, along with contributor Ralph Peters, was penalized by the news network after using profanity on air that was directed at President Barack Obama.
Peters described Obama as “a total p___” during a Sunday appearance on the Fox Business Network in response to his Sunday night speech from the Oval Office. During a different program, the “Clueless” star said that the President doesn’t “give a s___” about terrorism.
It was later announced that both Dash and Peters were suspended.
“Earlier today, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air,” Fox senior executive vice president Bill Shine was quoted as saying by CNN. “Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks.”
Hopefully, this will inspire Ms. Dash, who is constantly ridiculed for her unpopular political opinions, to think a little bit more before she speaks.
