Did Stacey Dash Just Disrespect Harriet Tubman?

Did Stacey Dash Just Disrespect Harriet Tubman?

Side-eye.

Published April 20th

We are all celebrating Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the twenty dollar bill, but Stacey Dash posted an awkward statement on her Twitter. See below:

Stacey add in her blog post, "I, for one, am thrilled at this news," but for Stacey to minimize Harriet as a gun-toting Black woman is problematic. Harriet Tubman is an icon of freedom and represents the lengths African-Americans fought to be equal, and we all know how Stacey feels about African-American history.  

Even people in her mentions clapped back; one user said, @SagDiva1 "oh you know about Black History? K then."

Do you think Dash's tweet was offensive?

Check out our BET Breaks clip of her interesting "message to women," below:
