Stacey Dash Blasts Jay-Z and Beyoncé for Cuba Trip

Actress tweets her criticism of the power couple.

Stacey Dash has added her voice to the politically conservative persecution of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s recent trip to Cuba. The actress took to Twitter to blast the power couple for visiting the communist country as part of an organized trip.
“Do you care that The Jay-Z's have taken the capital you have given them,” Dash tweeted, “and funded a communist oppressive regime?” The Clueless actress has made it a point, over the past year, of publically expressing her Republican views. During the 2012 presidential race, she made headlines when she endorsed Mitt Romney via Twitter.

Dash’s latest headline-grabbing move comes as Republican congress members Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) submitted a letter asking for more details about Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s trip. The couple’s visit, which coincided with their fifth wedding anniversary, drew criticism.  The trip Jay and Beyoncé took was organized, according to Rueters, by the New York-Based nonprofit organization Academic Arrangements. 

Jay-Z responded to the cirticism with a new song, "Open Letter."
