After the University of Virginia urged female students to avoid parties in order to prevent rape and other sexual misconduct, the actress – a regular on the Fox News show Outnumbered – addressed the new development by voicing her controversial opinion on the topic.
"I think it's a good thing for the good girls to be told to stay home, be safe," the Clueless star told the panel. "The other bad girls – bad women – are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt."
The actress followed up her victim-blaming with a pretty flawed firearms metaphor which continued to ignore the fault of the rapists and perpetrators of sexual crimes.
"The other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol instead of the person who overdrinks," Dash continued. "It’s like, the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk, you get yourself drunk."
Unsurprisingly, Dash's comments sparked a social media backlash.
I am starting to realize that Stacey Dash was not acting in “Clueless” at all.
Somewhat ironically, Dash lashed out at Kanye West last year, suggesting the rapper might need to "spend some time on Riker’s Island" after making comments comparing paparazzi attention to rape. See more in the video below.
