Watch Stacey Dash Read Mean Tweets About Her Confusing Oscars Appearance

Remember when everybody briefly got to be the Weeknd last night? Confusing person Stacey Dash published a vlog post Monday to address her confusing Oscars appearance and to tackle some of the immediate backlash she received. “There are a lot of people that don’t agree with me, and have a lot of very mean things to say, which, I will never live down,” the “new director of [the Academy’s] minority outreach program” explains in her pre-recorded vid. “But here’s the thing: I do what I do, because I want to do it, and because I believe in it, and it has nothing to do with race. And I wish you would stop saying that.”

Dash also takes a page out of Jimmy Kimmel’s book by reading a handful of mean tweets from the night. (“I was hoping there was a trap door on stage,” wrote one detractor. “You sucked on the Oscars like you do on @foxnews pointless,” wrote another.) As for more on what that inside joke was all about? She just says she’s very happy and proud about what she did. You can see some highlights above or the whole thing here.
