Remember last week when Stacey Dash sent off that tweet calling our Auntie Maxine a buffoon who was trying to extend her 15 minutes of fame? Well, now the Clueless star is claiming that she wasn’t the one who fired off the wannabe spicy tweet; it was an unnamed intern who made a mistake.
Dear Stacey Dash:
Melanin was poppin’ during Tuesday night’s airing of Black Girls Rock! on BET. U.S Rep. Auntie Maxine Waters, Issa Rae, Solange Knowles and Yara Shahidi were among the women celebrated for their achievements at the annual award show created by Beverly Bond.
