Hollywood starlet Gabrielle Union is too busy making magic on BET’s “Being Mary Jane” to take any of Stacey Dash’s commentary about the network seriously.

When asked her thoughts on the viral comments made by Stacey Dash about Union’s home network and the #OscarsSoWhite conversation, Mrs. Wade sarcastically acted like she wasn’t familiar with the Fox News commentator by replying:

“Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash? Is she like related to Dame Dash? Was she on Roc-A-Fella? I heard of a crazy lady once, but I don’t know what her name is” she said.

While promoting her new film, “The Birth of a Nation,” and supporting the various films and actors at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Gabrielle did have this offer about the remarks made by Dash:

“If you don’t see yourself reflected in mainstream awards, you tend to create your own. Until there is no longer a need for that, I celebrate the ALMAs, the same way I celebrate the Country Music Awards, and the same way I celebrate the BET Awards and the Image Awards, which we’ll all be at in a couple of weeks. The more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say.”

Watch the classy clapback here:


Truthfully, every time we hear from her, Stacey’s starring role in “Clueless” makes that much more sense…
