Fox News has decided not to renew Stacey Dash’s contract this fall. She hasn’t appeared on the cable network since September.

Dash is best known for portraying Dionne “Di” Davenport in the 90’s classic, Clueless. She was never a stranger to controversial topics on Fox News, where she served as a contributor. Lines such as “get rid of BET” and “there shouldn’t be a Black History Month” spearheaded her into one of the most popular topics in social media, especially via Black Twitter.

She also spoke on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy and was the subject of Chris Rock’s jokes during the 2016 Oscars ceremony. She even willingly participated saying, “I cannot wait to help my people out. Happy Black History Month!”

We’ll see what’s next for Stacey Dash, especially as her comments are sure to headline during this current presidency.
