LOS ANGELES — Stacey Dash is known for speaking her mind, and on Sunday, she made an unexpected appearance on the Oscars stage, then explained it in a blog post.
Host Chris Rock introduced the controversial actress within the first hour of the show, held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. She was welcomed with a few claps and a lot of confused looks.
Instead of a drawn out speech, she had four words for everyone watching.
“Happy Black History Month,” Dash said smiling and waving to the audience.
If you’re confused by her one-liner — in January, Dash said in an interview with Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” that there shouldn’t be a Black History Month.
“We’re Americans. Period. That’s it,” she said to show’s host Steve Doocy.
When the host asked Dash if the ban was because there was no “White History Month,” she responded, “Exactly, exactly.”
She also said the controversy over the Oscars was “ludicrous.”
“We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration,” she said.
