Actress and commentator Stacey Dash on Wednesday has apologized for comments she made during past appearances on Fox News, describing herself then as an “angry, conservative, Black woman."
"I've lived my life being angry, which is what I was on Fox News," Dash said in an interview on DailyMailTV. She added that she was done with politics.
"There are things that I am sorry for. Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them," Dash added. "They were very arrogant and prideful and angry. And that's who Stacey was, but that's not who Stacey is now. Stacey's someone who has compassion, empathy."
Dash grabbed headlines with her past support of former President TrumpDonald TrumpOvernight Defense & National Security — The Pentagon's deadly mistake Overnight Energy & Environment — Presented by Climate Power — Interior returns BLM HQ to Washington France pulls ambassadors to US, Australia in protest of submarine deal MORE, as well as her comments defending remarks he made following a violent white supremacists protest in Charlottesville, Va.
"Being a supporter of Trump has put me in some kind of box that I don't belong in," Dash told DailyMailTV. "But he's not the president. I'm going to give the president that we have right now a chance."
Dash, who appeared in the 1995 movie "Clueless," was hired by Fox News as a contributor in May 2014 and primarily appeared on the afternoon news discussion program “Outnumbered.”
In 2015, Dash was suspended from Fox for cursing on-air while talking about a speech former President Obama made on terrorism. And in January 2017, the cable outlet announced it had not renewed her contract.
In February 2018, Dash tweeted that she was considering a run for Congress as a Republican. However, in March of that year, CNN reported that Dash decided to end her congressional bid.
Fox News declined to comment on Dash's statements.
