Stacey Dash made a surprise cameo during the 2016 Oscars, after host Chris Rock used his opening monologue to address this year's #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
The 49-year-old Fox News correspondent — who has created a reputation for herself based on her views in the continuous minority debate — left the audience dumbfounded after making QUITE an awkward joke during her short time onstage.

"I cannot wait to help my people out. Happy Black History Month!" Stacey said.
An eyewitness tells Us Weekly the joke "totally fell flat," adding, "No one laughed or applauded when she came out and people around me in the audience were saying, 'Huh?'"
