Stacey Dash faces backlash for Mitt Romney endorsement

SUPPORT: Stacey Dash faces backlash for Mitt Romney Endorsement

HOLLYWOOD ACTRESS Stacey Dash has been blasted by angry commentators on Twitter, after she publicly endorsed US presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.

The Cluless star set tongues wagging when she posted a steamy picture of herself on her Twitter account posing alongside the slogan: "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney [sic]."

Shortly after the now infamous tweet, responses from shocked fans came flooding in with many shunning her for supporting a white candidate over President Obama.

One user ranted: "You're an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You're voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot."

"Can someone tell Stacey Dash her role in Clueless is over?" wrote one user.

Another added: "Stacey Dash, black actress backing Gov. Romney. Needs some help! [sic]."

Dash later stood up for herself, simply tweeting back: "My humble opinion... EVERYONE is entitled to one [sic]."

Following her defense others have chimed in to show their support for the 46-year-old.

One user tweeted: "Everybody send some love and support Stacey Dash's way. After coming out and supporting Romney she has had to deal with bigots of all kind."

"I'll go on record to say I don't care who Stacey Dash wants to support, she's still stunning," concluded another fan.
