*ESPN host Jemele Hill took to Twitter Wednesday to criticize actress-turned conservative pundit Stacey Dash for appearing in Damon Dash’s upcoming blackity-black movie.

Dash and Kanye West teamed on the action film “Honor Up,” and it will reportedly arrive at a theater near you during Black History Month 2018.

West served as executive producer of the film, while Dame, Stacey and Cam’ron star opposite several hip-hop greats who make appearances, including Styles P, Sheek, Jadakiss, Oschino, Smoke DZA and Murda Mook.

Hill took one look at the promo poster and quickly hit up social with, “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.”

She added, “I just find it really interesting Ms. Why Isn’t there a White History Month (yeah she said that) is constantly positioning herself with an audience she clearly despises, on some level.” 

Her observations of Stacey’s commentary stem from a 2016 interview on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” where Dash said there should be no BET Awards or Black History Month.

“We have to make up our minds,” she said. “Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re Black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.”

When Stacey caught wind of Hills comments, and that she’s the center of yet another “racial” joke, she quickly hopped on Twitter to stress that she is “not involved” with Dame and Kanye’s project.

No. I am not [involved],” she said when asked. “I’ll let the lawyers handle it.”
