Anthony Anderson vs. Stacey Dash at the 2016 NAACP Image Awards
“Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson hosted the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards in 2016 and opened the show with his own NWA’esque musical number. During his monologue, he took some time to jokingly address Stacey Dash, who had been making headlines due to her very conservative (and often wrong) views. Anderson said, “Everybody give a round of applause for Stacey Dash! What the hell is she doing here? 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! Come back to the black people.” Needless to say, Stacey wasn’t feeling it. In response, she tweeted, “Well it’s funny how woman who weighs 105 wet! Can get grown ass men to act like llittle girls! Haha.” We’ve got to admit that Anthony was very entertaining.
