Stacey Dash had everyone cringing at the 2016 Oscars ceremony with her short, awkward speech about diversity at the event.
Chris Rock, who addressed the #OscarsSoWhite controversy head-on, introduced Stacey Dash, former Clueless actor turned Fox News conservative pundit.
Stacey had recently weighed into the #OscarsSoWhite debate like Jada Pinkett-Smith, however, unlike Jada, Stacey announced that she believes institutes that celebrate black achievements – like Black History Month and the Black Entertainment Network (BET) should be abolished. Eeeeeeek.
Take a look at the awkward moment…
