After Chris Rock’s opening monologue discussing the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, there was a long… awkward… silence.
It was all thanks to Clueless actress, Stacey Dash, 49, who was introduced to the Oscars’ stage by Rock as the “new director of our minority outreach programme”.
While Dash now appears most often as a contributor on Fox News, most of the world remembers her as Dionne, Cher’s bestie on 1995’s cult classic Clueless.
Dash previously criticised her fellow celebrities who decided to boycott the Oscars this year over the lack of diversity in the nominations, calling the reaction “ludicrous”. She also faced social media backlash for disagreeing to having a Black History Month on the BET channel, as she felt it was counter to American values.
The awkwardness was made evident by the reaction of The Weekend:
As well as Chrissy Teigen:
Who ensures us all, she was making that face at STACEY DASH, not to be mistaken with SARAH SILVERMAN.
We can now all sleep at night and bask in the fact that Chrissy Teigen’s snarky face is probably being turned into hilarious memes as we speak.
