Stacey Dash is spoiling for a fight with Oprah Winfrey. The Clueless star slammed the actress and media queen over comments Winfrey made comparing Trayvon Martin to Emmitt Till. During her publicity tour for Lee Daniels' The Butler, Winfrey told journalists she believed the cases are similar and applauded President Barack Obama for refraining from going on Fox News. 

Dash tweeted a link to a Fox News story criticizing Winfrey for the Martin/Till comparison and added her own two cents: "If you aren't careful, The newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing — Malcolm X," she tweeted, before adding, "Shame on you @oprah."

The actress has caused quite a stir with her conservative viewpoints, from her support of Mitt Romney to her bashing of Beyoncé and Jay Z for their trip to Cuba. She also spoke out in support of Paula Deen, who saw her empire crumble after a court deposition revealed she used the N-word on multiple occasions.
