Support for Paula Deen
Back in June 2013, after the Food Network and many other endorsers dropped celebrity chef Paula Deen when allegations of her racist antics and words surfaced, Dash elected to extend her and her daughter’s support, tweeting “God does everything for a reason @Paula_Deen Only God can judge your heart BTW my daughter loves your show (only way she can get me to cook).”
Disregarding the Black Vote
Both the ACLU and the NAACP filed lawsuits challenging North Carolina’s voter ID law, believing it undermined the political effectiveness of Blacks and other minority groups in the state. But Dash’s July 2013 tweet, “Of course. VOTER ID. Common Sense,” showed the actress saw things much differently.
