BET Would Like to Remind Stacey Dash That They Used to Pay Her Rent


You’ve heard the comments Stacey Dash made yesterday about how Black History Month and BET shouldn’t exist. BET caught wind as well. The cable channel isn’t having it. Network Chairman and CEO Debra Lee issued a statement reading,

“Over 35 years ago BET was created to give African Americans and lovers of black culture a place in the television landscape where they could consistently see themselves represented and celebrated. Through our award shows and programming we have recognized incredible talent that simply does not get recognized elsewhere — from entertainment to politics to business to the arts. African American contributions to American culture are countless and we cannot and should not wait for anyone to acknowledge them —  we have to do it ourselves and we are proud that we can do our part with the BET Awards, BET Honors, Black Girls Rock, Soul Train Awards, BET Hip Hop Awards, Celebration of Gospel and more!”

Even better? BET’s Twitter account,

BET also tweeted a “Every Time Stacey Dash Proved She Was Clueless.”

And the winner is: BET
