Stacey Dash Makes Weird, Unfunny Cameo at 2016 Oscars, But Why?

Stacey Dash, one time Clueless star-turned-controversial-Fox News political pundit who recently called for the end of BET (despite once being on BET), made a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo at the Oscars this evening (February 28). It was…just bad?

Setting up the joke (?), Chris Rock addressed the ongoing Academy Awards diversity issue before offering up an unexpected solution.

“The Academy has taken steps to fix this problem, and that is why it is my honor to introduce the new director of our Minority Outreach Program. Please welcome…Miss Stacey Dash!”

And…out came the actual Stacey Dash.

“I cannot wait to help my people out. Happy Black History Month!” she giggled, weirdly. The audience stayed silent, weirdly. It all landed with a thud, weirdly. Watch above.

We’ll stick with Chris Rock’s spot-on opening monologue — and we’ll let The Weeknd‘s reaction to Dash speak for itself.

While Chrissy Teigen, Queen of Awkward Face, made this face:
