Stacey Dash Disses Kanye West On Fox News Over ‘Rape Rant’By: Val Powell - July 10, 2014
Actress Stacey Dash expressed her opinion on celebrities who compare public exposure to dangerous and extreme situations. The 47-year-old Clueless actress appeared in a Fox News segment called “Outnumbered” where other hosts asked for her opinion.
The hosts cited some examples of celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow when she compared insults on the internet to “being a soldier in war,” and Lupita Nyong’o when she compared walking the red carpet to a “warzone.”
Over the weekend, Kanye West performed at the Wireless Festival in London where he was booed by the audience for ranting. His “speech” garnered criticism, especially when he compared having his picture taken by the paparazzi to being raped.
“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 mo*********** following me,” West ranted to the crowd at the middle of his set. “Sex is great with you and your partner. But if one of the people don’t want to do that, what is that called? That’s called rape. That’s called violation,” he said referring to the paparazzi’s behavior when taking his pictures in public.

Dash expressed her opinion regarding West’s statement and said, “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 also continued that the paparazzi are just doing their job by taking celebrity pictures. “If you’re nice, if you’re polite to them, they leave you alone. It’s when you start to call them names and act crazy and put your hands up and do all this drama that they make it a big deal,” she said.
Dash finished her statement and said that being in the public eye is part of being a celebrity. Did she go over the line when she urged West to go to prison?
