Stacey Dash's Ouster From Fox News Delights Twitter

Network declines to renew her contract.

Perhaps Fox News got a clue about “Clueless” sidekick Stacey Dash.

The network opted not to renew Dash’s contract, which is why the actress-turned-commentator has been off the air since September, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed in a report on Sunday.

Fox News reportedly dropped actress-turned-commentator Stacey Dash last fall.

Fox News reportedly dropped actress-turned-commentator Stacey Dash last fall.

Dash began offering right-wing commentary for Fox News in 2014, but was suspended briefly the following year for using profanity during an on-air tirade about President Barack Obama.

All the while Dash has generated controversy with her views. She called the fight for transgender bathroom rights “tyranny by the minority.” She said there should be no Black History Month because there isn’t a white history month. And she caused a stir by trolling the Pulse nightclub tragedy with a Donald Trump endorsement.

Needless to say, a chunk of Twitter delighted in the news of her exit from Fox.
