Stacey Dash Slams Kanye West for Comparing Getting His Picture Taken to Rape [VIDEO]

Kanye West is known for making headlines for his signature mid-concert rants. After he compared getting his picture taken to rape while onstage at the 2014 Wireless Festival in London last week, one of his former video stars is speaking out against him.
Actress Stacey Dash, who was a recent guest on Fox News’ ‘Outnumbered,’ famously appeared in West’s ‘All Falls Down’ video, in which she lovingly sheds a tear when she leaves the rapper at the airport. She isn’t quite as sentimental 10 years later. Dash heavily criticized West during her time on the show for comparing celebrity issues to rape.
“For Kanye to say ‘rape,’ maybe he needs to spend some time on Rikers Island,” Dash says. “Go to Rikers for a while, and then he’ll know what rape is.”
She went on to suggest that if West was perhaps nicer to the paparazzi, they wouldn’t follow him. “If you’re nice, if you’re polite to them, they leave you alone,” she explained. “It’s when you start to call them names and act crazy and put your hands up and do all this drama that they make it a big deal.”
Dash was initially angry with West over the comments below, which were made during his Wireless Festival show:
“Everybody needs a day off, everybody needs the right to say ‘hey, you know what I need a minute to breathe. I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherfuckers following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner be like ‘hey, this is what we both want to do.’ But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what does that constitute, that’s called rape. That is called violation.”
So it doesn’t look like Stacey Dash will be appearing in a Kanye West video anytime soon.
