Chris Rock Brings Stacey Dash Onstage as ‘Director’ of Oscars ‘Minority Outreach Program.’ What Happens Next May Be the Show’s Most Awkward Moment.

LOS ANGELES (TheBlaze/AP) — Actress and Fox News personality Stacey Dash says she wants to bring a different kind of diversity to Hollywood — and that’s why she participated in one of the oddest Oscar moments.

The former “Clueless” actress has attracted attention lately for her conservative viewpoints, including suggesting on Fox that there should not be a Black History Month. Dash, who is black, also spoke out against people complaining that the Oscars didn’t reflect diversity.

She was jokingly introduced by host Chris Rock as director of the “Oscars’ Minority Outreach Program.” Dash strode onstage to say, “I cannot wait to help my people out. Happy Black History Month!”

The joke seemed to fall flat with the audience.
