2016 Academy Awards: Stacey Dash Makes Incredibly Awkward Appearance
Get ready to cringe…
Although Chris Rock’s opening monologue at the awards show was just about perfect, skewering Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and the #OscarsSoWhite boycott, another moment during the evening fell flat in a pretty awkward, hard to watch, kinda way.
“…It is my honor to introduce the new director of our Minority Outreach Program. Please welcome Miss Stacey Dash,” said Rock. The audience chuckled in disbelief, however, they were in for a surprise…
The actress strutted out and made a proclamation no one was expecting: “I cannot wait to help my people out. Happy Black History Month!”

This comes on the heels of Ms. Dash stating in an interview that Black History Month and the Black Entertainment Television should be done away with because they only cover and award African Americans. Needless to say, everyone was pretty much speechless.
