Fox News contributor Stacey Dash lashed out at NAACP Image Awards host, Anthony Anderson, after the actor/comedian took a jab at her during the awards.
Dash called him out on Twitter, saying “Well it’s funny how woman who weighs 105 wet! Can get grown ass men to act like little girls!”
Earlier on Friday night at the awards ceremony, Anderson joked in his monologue that she was the first awards presenter of the evening, saying “Everybody give a round of applause for Stacey Dash! What the hell is she doing here?” He continued, “Doesn’t she know that the Fox network is using her? She’s just an Ann Coulter dipped in butterscotch. That’s all she is. Baby, don’t let them use you!”
Anderson asked her to “Come back to the black people,” saying that she has recently only been in C-list movies. “I promise I will see them!”
Last month in response to the #OscarsSoWhite debate, Dash had said on Steve Doocy‘s Fox & Friends that she believes that awards shows in general present a “double standard.“ She also questioned the existence of channels like BET and why anyone celebrates Black History Month.
“We’re Americans, period,” Dash said. “And if we don’t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard.”
She received a widespread backlash from the black community on social media for her comments, with fellow actresses and actors joining in.
