Chris Rock & Stacey Dash’s Awkward Oscars Joke Makes Chrissy Teigen & More Cringe

Wow, things just got so awkward! Chris Rock brought Stacey Dash onstage during the 88th Academy Awards on Feb. 28 and joked that she should be the head of the ‘minority outreach program.’ This comes after her controversial comments about getting rid of Black History Month.

It had to be the most awkward moment of the entire Oscars night. Chris Rock was talking about how the Academy is “taking steps” to solve the “Oscars So White” controversy and he said they had found the perfect person to be the Director of the Minority Outreach Program … Stacey Dash! They were obviously making fun of the time she went on Fox & Friends and said there was no diversity issue at the Oscars and that they should actually get rid of things like Black History Month. But it went terribly, terribly, wrong.
