Stacey Dash Slams Dave Chappelle Over Prince Comments

Stacey Dash Slams Dave Chappelle Over Prince Comments

Now she's telling people how to grieve.

Published April 28, 2016

Stacey Dash is angry again and she wants everyone to know why. This time, she has a problem with Dave Chappelle's Prince comments where he compared the legend's death to 9/11.

The Clueless actress said she disagrees that The Purple One's death is anything similar to one of the most devastating moments in American history.

Penning a brief post on her Patheos blog, she wrote, "When Dave Chappelle took the stage after Prince's death, he was grief stricken. He knew Prince personally, and almost didn't perform out of respect. Then, he thought better of it... But there was one moment that wasn't quite right. As much as I love Dave — and think he's hilarious — he told the audience that the death of Prince 'is the Black 9/11.'"

After taking a moment "to digest that," she went on to explain that the 9/11 tragedy "affected all Americans and comparing it to "the death of a pop star icon just doesn't work."

Do you agree or this just Stacey being clueless again?
