Actress Stacey Dash tore into Oprah Winfrey on Twitter Friday for her recent comments comparing the brutal murder of Emmet Till to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the Blaze reported.
The "Clueless" star quoted Malcom X: "If You aren't careful, The newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed And loving the people who are doing the oppressing."
Miss Dash then linked to a Fox News Insider video where Oprah argues the similarities between the two deaths.
"Shame on you @Oprah," Ms. Dash tweeted.
Emmet Till was savagely murdered by a group of white men in 1955 Mississippi after he was seen flirting with a white woman. In contrast, Trayvon was shot and killed in Sanford, Fla., following a violent altercation with George Zimmerman in February 2012.
Zimmerman, who claims he shot Martin in self-defense, was acquitted of all charges.
