Stacey Dash Apologizes For Rape Victims Are 'Bad Girls Who Like To Be Naughty' Comments

Stacey Dash

It may be time for Stacey Dash to add "Habitual Line Stepper" to her resume because homegirl's always making controversial statements and ruffling feathers.

The Fox News pundit found herself in hot water again over absurd comments she made about rape victims, and now she's apologizing for what she said was nothing more than a bad joke.

Last week, Stacey was on Outnumbered to discuss rapes on college campuses after Dartmouth College decided to ban hard alcohol on its campus, and University of Virginia's sororities ordered their members to stay home and away from frat parties to avoid being sexually assaulted.  This all was a result of a now discredited Rolling Stone article that was published in January detailing a gang rape that allegedly happened to a UVA freshman in 2012.

During the discussion, the conservative 48-year-old said she thought the bans were ridiculous because it's the "bad women" who get drunk and "like to be naughty" who find themselves in trouble.

I just think it's ridiculous. I think it's a good thing for the good women to be told to stay home and be safe. The other bad girls –- bad women -- are the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt and then, you know...But the other thing about this is that it then blames the alcohol instead of the person who over-drinks. So it’s like, the same thing with guns. Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. Alcohol doesn’t get you drunk; you get yourself drunk.

With websites and social media torching her behind for the controversial statements, Stacey's now apologizing and clarifying her previous comments. According to her, implying that rape victims are to blame for their rapes was just a joke and what she really means is alcohol shouldn't be to blame.

She wrote on Facebook:

After a failed attempt at humor about “good girls” and “naughty girls,” during my recent appearance on Outnumbered, I transitioned to the very serious issue of men blaming alcohol for their vile behavior. LET ME BE CLEAR: I am a victim of physical and sexual abuse. My point was that there IS NO EXCUSE for a man taking advantage of women under any circumstances. I believe that these universities focusing on alcohol consumption as a means to stop evil behavior takes the focus off the real issue of the objectification of women and how that can be prevented. I apologize to anyone who believed I was blaming the victims of these horrible acts.

As a physical and sexual abuse victim, she definitely could have chosen her words more carefully.
