Fox News Suspends Stacey Dash For Using Profanity While Criticizing The President
Fox News correspondents Stacey Dash and Ralph Peters were suspended for two weeks for their use of profanity while criticizing the president's efforts in the war on terror.
Although her comments were partially censored, the 48-year-old actress said President Obama "doesn't give a s--t" about terrorism during the show Outnumbered.
Bill Shine, Senior Executive Vice President of Programming at Fox News and Fox Business in a statement condemned Dash and Ralph's language.
“Earlier today, FOX contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air. FOX Business Network and FOX News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks.”
The Clueless actress took to Twitter Monday (December 7) in the wake of her suspension taking full responsibility for her language and actions.
Consequences. Some of us have to pay them. Gladly.

Dash has long been a staunch critic of Obama and his administration and in the past accused the president of dividing the country.
“I didn’t know anything about [Obama] when I voted for him in 2008. My choice to do so was purely because he was black,” she admitted. “Naively, I thought he would be the right person for the job but unfortunately it didn’t turn out that way. Obama had the opportunity to really unite this country in such a profound way, but instead he has done the opposite. We are so divided right now, everything has become about race, more than I’ve ever known in my lifetime.”
