On Jan. 21, 2017, Fox News announced they will not be renewing Stacey Dash's contract. It appears when the actress found out the media outlet will no longer be paying her bills, she found her way back to the cookout ( also known as the Black community).
Stacey's New Project
News broke that Single Ladies star would be featured in the movie when the film's poster began floating around on Twitter. In the poster, Dash is seen wearing a bomber jacket, skinny jeans, door-knockers (bamboo earrings) with her hair styled in a flat-twist up-do bun. Dipset rapper Cam'Ron was featured alongside Dash and her cousin, Damon.
Well, well, look who’s back. Running right back to a black audience after working overtime to shame black people daily on national television. Well done. pic.twitter.com/7niuyjA3xm

It's reported that Honored Up will have a plot similar to the cult favorite Paid In Full. Originally titled, Too Honorable, the film will showcase Styles P, Smoke DZA and Murda Mook in roles, as well. It will be Damon Dash's first feature-length directorial effort since State Property: Blood On The Streets, which was released in 2005. It is surprising Dash would want to be a part of a film project that will most likely showcase the gritty realities of inner-city life and crime.
Her Fox "Career"
While she worked at Fox, Dash assaulted her race and socio-economic class she came from. For example, while on live television, Dash said there shouldn't be a Black History Month because there isn't a white history month. She even said there should no longer be a Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards despite the fact she earned an income being regularly featured in various hip-hop music videos and television shows whose core audience was the "urban demographic."
There was also the incident where Dash called Senator Maxine Waters a "media buffoon" on Twitter because Senator Waters said the following in her Black Girls Rock speech. "I know I’m simply a strong black woman. I am you and you are me. We have power, we have influence, we can do things others have told us we can’t do," Waters preached.
"I don’t care how big you are, I don’t care how high you think you are. If you come for me I’m coming for you," as she referencing President Trump's extreme campaign tactics that often promoted racism and xenophobia.
