Stacey Dash Doubles Down On Confusing Oscars Joke, Butchers ’90s Classic “Clueless”


Stacey Dash played Dionne in the wonderful film Clueless. She also has very retrograde views on race! She has now made a video for Independent Journal Review, where the joke is that she is the Director of Minority Outreach in Hollywood, a position the real Dash would probably think shouldn’t exist because racism is dead or something. In the clip, Director of Minority Outreach Dash goes to CPAC to find some minorities to be movie stars and they read lines from Clueless.

Here are some takeaways:

1) Stacey Dash is doubling down on a bit from the Oscars that went so poorly Chrissy Teigan’s reaction went viral.

2) Dash looks like she has not aged in 20 years.

3) These conservatives she met at CPAC are not very good actors. Watching them butcher a ’90s classic is fun in a hate-watching sort of way.

4) In the end, Dash sends the audition tapes to  Tyler Perry and Spike Lee and says “I would love to be a fly on the wall when they open up those envelopes.” I sincerely doubt Tyler Perry and Spike Lee are going to open those envelopes.
