Audiences watching the 88th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 28) night were still laughing from host Chris Rock’s opening monologue when things took an unexpected turn.

Building off the Oscars need for more diversity, Rock introduced the “New Director for Minority Outreach,” followed by Stacey Dash taking the stage to wish everyone a “Happy Black History Month!”

Yes, the same Dash who recently called for getting rid of networks like BET, as well as the BET and NAACP Image Awards, where “you’re only awarded if you’re black.” The former “Clueless” actress, current FOX News commentator has also called for the elimination of Black History Month, explaining, “Either we want to have segregation or integration.”

Even Dash appeared to not be in on the joke, tweeting afterwards: “Who is Stacey Dash” and why did I just walk across the #Oscar stage?” while linking to a confusing blog post, where she tries to explain: “When they added ME to increase the diversity, I’m sure many black people rolled their eyes. I’m not “black enough,” they say. But guess what? I’ve heard that all my life. I would rather be a free thinking, black than a cookie cutter black who thinks – and votes – just like all my friends.”

Twitter was not impressed.

    More hypocrisy from the left……the ‘you can’t criticize people’ crowd is at is again. It’s only okay to criticize and mock if people don’t think like the Left wants them to….. Toe the line or face their wrath. It’s so nice they are more enlightened than the rest of us!
