Clueless star Stacey Dash was literally clueless that her tweet supporting presidential candidate Mitt Romney would prompt such a huge outcry.

She tweeted on October 7, "Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future. @mittromney @teamromney #mittromney #VOTE #voteromney." Stacey also included a sexy and kind of strange image of herself in front of an American flag backdrop.

Stacey was on Piers Morgan Tonight and said she voted for Barack Obama in 2008 but now believes in Romney's vision for the future of the country. She probably won't have her mind changed by some of the nasty responses she's gotten on Twitter. According to Us Weekly, one person told Stacey she was "an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You're voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot."

Stacey told Piers she was "saddened and really shocked" by the unexpected fury. But she's also received a lot of support on Twitter, including from VP candidate Paul Ryan, who thanked her for her support.

Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinions, but it's really a shame we can't be just a wee bit kinder when sharing them.
