Clueless actress Stacey Dash apologized on Facebook today for her remarks about rape on Fox panel show Outnumbered last week.
On the show, which she co-hosts, Dash made a distinction between good girls and bad girls – implying the latter are more likely to experience sexual assault because of their actions.
"I think it’s a good thing for the good girls to be told: 'stay home, be safe'. 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..." she said.
Dash went on, "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."
In a Facebook post, Dash apologized for the claimed joke.
"After a failed attempt at humor about 'good girls' and 'naughty girls,' during my recent appearance on Outnumbered, I transitioned to the very serious issue of men blaming alcohol for their vile behavior. LET ME BE CLEAR: I am a victim of physical and sexual abuse," Dash wrote.
"My point was that there IS NO EXCUSE for a man taking advantage of women under any circumstances. I believe that these universities focusing on alcohol consumption as a means to stop evil behavior takes the focus off the real issue of the objectification of women and how that can be prevented. I apologize to anyone who believed I was blaming the victims of these horrible acts."
Dash thankfully realized the real problem with campus rape is the objectification of women rather than alcohol consumption, but her poor choice in humor still makes us wonder.
