Everyone has an opinion on Jay-Z and Beyonce’s trip to Cuba, even the clueless. Actress Stacey Dash, known for her role in 90s film Clueless, has taken to Twitter to slam the superstars for spending money in the communist country.
“Do you care that The Jay-Zs have taken the capital you have given them and funded a communist oppressive regime?” she writes.
Dash’s remarks should come as no surprise if you’ve been following her political career. The actress was an outspoken proponent of Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential elections, much to the dismay of some of her fans.
On election night, she published an essay on her right to vote for whomever she likes regardless of her face. The following is an excerpt:
“Perhaps I publically endorsed Romney from a slightly naive place, thinking that I could speak my voice without being criticized in such racially charged and hateful tones,” Dash said in the letter. “People get it wrong. My vote for Romney isn’t a vote against Obama. That’s not how full participants in the democratic process operate. We vote for candidates and we vote for issues.”
Despite Dash’s qualms with Hov and King Bey, a source with the United States Treasury Department says the couple’s visit with authorized. Every year, thousands of Americans travel to Cuba through special licenses provided by the government.
