"I've lived my life being angry, which is what I was on Fox News"

Dash, 54, told the Daily Mail in an interview published Wednesday that the Jan. 6 Capitol riots were a turning point for her political opinions.

‘When that happened I was like ‘OK, I’m done. I’m truly done,’ ” she said. “Because senseless violence of any kind I denounce. What happened on Jan. 6 was just appalling and stupid.”…

“I’ve lived my life being angry, which is what I was on Fox News,” she said. “I was the angry, conservative, Black woman. And at that time in my life it was who I was.”

Dash added: “There are things that I am sorry for. Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them. They were very arrogant and prideful and angry. And that’s who Stacey was, but that’s not who Stacey is now. Stacey’s someone who has compassion, empathy. … If anyone has ever felt that way about me, like I’ve judged, that I apologize for because that’s not who I am.”
