Fox News host Stacey Dash apologized for comments she made on the network suggesting that some sexual assault victims are "bad girls ... who like to be naughty."

On the January 30 edition of Fox's Outnumbered, the co-hosts discussed reports that sorority women at the University of Virginia were ordered by their national chapters to avoid fraternity "bid night" parties. Dash commented, "I think it's a good thing for the good girls ... to be told, stay home. Be safe. The other bad girls -- bad women -- or the ones who like to be naughty, might go out and play and get hurt."

Her remarks were met with widespread criticism, and on February 2, Dash apologized on her Facebook page, claiming she had made a "failed attempt at humor":
