Stacey Dash’s sporadic career as a Fox News pundit is over after the network declined to renew her contract.
The sometime actress and author, an early and vocal Trump supporter, made her Fox News debut in 2014 but hasn’t been seen on air since last September and a spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that the decision to not renew was taken last fall.
However, as of Sunday, Dash’s Twitter profile still listed her role as a Fox News contributor.
Dash is best known for her role in the 1995 film Clueless but in recent years has become better known for her politics. Since her high-profile decision to vote for the Romney-Ryan ticket instead of Obama-Biden in 2012, Dash, 50, has staked out increasingly conservative positions, reveling in the notoriety on Twitter as well as on Fox News. In 2015, she was suspended temporarily from the network for swearing on-air in a rant about President Obama. Last year, she created more controversy for her strident views on transgender issues as well as Middle Eastern immigration into the U.S. following the Orlando nightclub shooting.
