- Fox News Channel
Stacey Dash and the Fox News Channel have parted ways.
The cable news channel didn’t renew Dash’s contract, a Fox News representative told Business Insider on Monday. The representative pointed out that Dash had not appeared on the network since September.
David Folkenflik, NPR’s media correspondent, broke the news on Twitter on Friday.
Dash, who supported Donald Trump during the campaign, served as a contributor to Fox News since 2014 and is known for expressing her controversial views with strong language. The network suspended her in 2015 after she said President Barack Obama didn’t “give a s—” about terrorism.
Last year, she once again found herself in the middle of controversy when she expressed doubt about the lack of ethnic diversity at the Oscars and called for an end to the BET Awards and Black History Month.
Dash is best known for playing the best friend of Cher (Alicia Silverstone) in the 1995 movie “Clueless.” She has also had roles on the TV comedies “The Game” and “Single Ladies.”
In addition to Dash, Fox News decided not to renew contributor contracts for longtime political commentator George Will and Republican strategist Ed Rollins, according to The Hill.
A representative for Dash didn’t immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
