Stacey Dash is aware she’s not the top pick to discuss race relations, but it hasn’t stopped her from laughing at herself after her appearance at the Academy Awards Sunday evening.
After making a cameo during Chris Rock’s monologue, the actress headed to everyone’s favorite peanut gallery (Twitter) to read mean tweets about herself because, comedy? The bit is an indirect homage to Jimmy Kimmel’s popular “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” series except, not funny.
The 49-year-old posted the video on her Patheos blog where she also pointed out that she isn’t pandering to any races with her opinions. “I do what I do because I want to do it,” she said. “I do it because I believe in it. It has nothing to do with race and I wish you would stop saying that. Everything I do is because I believe in it and we are all equal. I don’t feel inferior nor do I feel superior. You should stop feeling the same.”
Take a look at the bit below.
