Actress Stacey Dash says there’s nothing Clueless about her support for Mitt Romney, even though she got flamed on Twitter for endorsing the Republican.

Dash, 45, found herself under attack when she took to the social network to express her support for Romney.

“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future,” she tweeted Sunday.

That sparked a barrage of criticism, much of it racially charged, toward the actress best known for appearing with Alicia Silverstone in 1995’s “Clueless,” a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s “Emma.”

“You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot,” one user tweeted.

Another wrote: “Wait stacey dash is voting for romney? you get a lil money and you forget that you’re black and a woman. two things romney hates.”

Dash stood her ground, responding, “My humble opinion… EVERYONE is entitled to one.”

She received support from Obama supporter Sandra Fluke, who spoke at the Democratic National Convention. Fluke made national headlines when conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh labeled her a “slut” for advocating that health insurers cover birth control services.

“So disappointed to see people attacking @REALStaceyDash for voicing her opinion,” Fluke tweeted Monday. “Disagree politically, but #racist attacks are unacceptable.”

Dash, who also appeared last year in Vh1’s “Single Ladies,” recently reunited with Silverstone and other “Clueless” cast members for an Entertainment Weekly cover shoot and appearance on ABC’ “Good Morning America.”
