Stacy Dash Distances Herself From Right Wing Persona

For the past few years actress, and former Fox news contributor, Stacey Dash has been a staunch right wing political activist and ardent Donald Trump supporter [click here if you missed that]. 

Stacey would like to apologize for that... 

Stacey Dash tells The Daily Mail
'As far as he's concerned, [Trump] is not the president. We have a new president.'
'Being a supporter of Trump has put me in some kind of box that I don't belong in. But he's not the president. I'm going to give the president that we have right now a chance.'
'I've lived my life being angry, which is what I was on Fox News. I was the angry, conservative, Black woman. And at that time in my life it was who I was,'
'I realized in 2016 that anger is unsustainable and it will destroy you. I made a lot of mistakes because of that anger.
'There are things that I am sorry for. Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them. They were very arrogant and prideful and angry. And that's who Stacey was, but that's not who Stacey is now. Stacey's someone who has compassion, empathy.
'God has forgiven me, how dare I not forgive someone else. I don't want to be judged, so how dare I judge anyone else. So if anyone has ever felt that way about me, like I've judged, that I apologize for because that's not who I am.'
Turns out the storming of the Capital was the last straw for Stacy who explained,
'I think the Capitol Riots were appalling. When that happened I was like 'Ok, I'm done. I'm truly done.' Because senseless violence of any kind I denounce. What happened on January 6 was just appalling and stupid.'
