After Stacey Dash showed her support for Republican Mitt Romney through Twitter, the actress quickly received nasty comments from other Twitter followers.
She was condemned for not supporting incumbent Democrat Barack Obama.
In an interview with TV host Piers Morgan, the actress said that he was ‘saddened and shocked’ by the harsh comments over her political opinion.
She said: “I really don't understand the fury. I don't understand it. I don't get it... I am shocked. Sad, not angry. Saddened and shocked. Really shocked.
“But you know what, you can't expect everyone to agree with you... (It was) pretty harsh... "It is my right as an American citizen.
“It's my constitutional right to have my choice of who I want to vote for for president... And I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character.”
During the interview, the actress also revealed that Paul Ryan, Romney’s running mate, thanked her for showing her support.
She told Piers: “And I thought that was just so generous and kind, you know. Lovely, really.”
