Stacey Dash: Rape Victims Are “Bad Girls” Who “Like To Be Naughty” (VIDEO)
Stacey Dash is facing backlash after implying that many college rape victims are “bad girls” who “like to be naughty.” The actress made the comments on Fox News’ “Outnumbered” on Friday, as the panel discussed the recent decision by some national sorority organizations to instruct University of Virginia members to stay home from fraternity parties. Watch the video below.
Asked for her thoughts on the party ban, Dash gave a somewhat confusing response. She started by saying, “[I think it’s] ridiculous. And I think it’s a good thing, for the good girls, to be told stay home, be safe.”
Dash then continued, “The other bad girls – bad women – are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt and then, you know… But the other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol instead of the person who over-drinks. So it’s like, the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk. You get yourself drunk.”
Her logic, pointed out by a number of observers, seems to be that rape victims get themselves raped by partying. Dash became a Twitter trending topic as thousands of outraged viewers expressed their anger at her comments. What do you think? Watch the video below.
