Was I the only one caught up in the irony of people attacking Stacey Dash and Tamera Mowry-Housley for stating their opinions on Twitter? All the while, they were being attacked with the opinions of others.
In case you missed it, Stacey Dash recently tweeted, “Vote for Romney, the only choice for your future.” During the Vice Presidential debate, Tamera Mowry-Housley retweeted a tweet that expressed annoyance over the candidates interrupting one another.
From the backlash she received, you would’ve thought she directly attacked Vice President Joe Biden who was a bit aggressive during the debate.

It’s like People Watching 2.0. When I heard that people were upset with the two actresses, I went to their mentions. I wanted to know the thought processes behind the anger.
What I found bothered me. I was talking to a friend and she told me about a quote she read that said, “People say, ‘vote or die,’ but if you don’t vote for Obama, they just want you to die.”
If you read some of the tweets that Dash and Mowry-Housley were flooded with, you would fully understand, and Mowry-Housley didn’t even endorse anyone.
