Fox News has severed ties with conservative pundit Stacey Dash after nearly three years and many Black Twitter users celebrated with sarcasm and humor.
The partisan network decided not to renew its contributor contract with Dash, usually seen on the all-female panel talk show “Outnumbered.” Fox initially hired Dash in May 2014 to “offer cultural analysis and commentary across various daytime and primetime programs,” Atlanta Black Star reported.
A spokesperson verified to The Hollywood Reporter Sunday, Jan. 22, that the “Clueless” star’s termination was decided in the fall. Although she has not appeared on Fox since September, her Twitter page, which last posted Monday, Jan. 23, still lists her as a contributor.

Dear Stacey Dash ,
We at FoxNews feel since we no longer have a black president we will no longer need a token negro.
Good Luck, FoxNews

Some took Dash’s situation as a lesson.
Let what has happened to Stacey Dash be a lesson to us all. The enemy will use you to get in power then dispose of you when they get power

Let Stacey Dash being fired from Fox be a lesson about the perils of thinking that pandering to white supremacy will save you. It won't.
