Conservative pundit Stacey Dash gets torched on Twitter for insulting Beyoncé’s mother
Clueless actress turned clueless conservative pundit Stacey Dash may have bitten off more than she could chew when she clashed with Tina Knowles — mother of Beyoncé and Solange Knowles — on social media Saturday.
According to BET.com, the kerfuffle began when Dash caught sight of Tina Knowles posing with former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland — who was dressed for Halloween as Dionne, Dash’s character from Clueless.
“This is my baby Dione last night of course she is prettier and more smarter than the one from the movie, but I was confused cause she kept saying something about her pager,” wrote Knowles.
Dash took to her blog to complain in a post called, “Beyonce’s mom just threw some shade at me? Here’s my unedited response.”
“First of all, if you’re trying to throw shade about someone’s intelligence, maybe use ‘smarter’ instead of ‘more smart,'” she fumed.
“Here’s the thing — Kelly Rowland is a beautiful girl and I love the costume! Imitation is the best form of flattery,” she said.
The Internet was quick to respond.
Beyoncé is known for the ferocity and devotion of her online fans, known as the “Beyhive.” Some commenters warned Dash that Solange Knowles — who famously punched and kicked rapper Jay-Z in security footage taken from an elevator — would be coming to exact revenge:
