Ever since the Oscar nominations were announced, Hollywood celebrities have been outraged by the lack of diversity. Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith and Lupita Nyong'o are just a few of the celebrities who have announced that they will not be taking part in the upcoming ceremony. However, "Clueless" star, Stacey Dash doesn’t seem to agree with the Oscars boycott or the celebrities behind it.

“We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration. And if we don't want segregation, then we need 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,” said the African-American actress earlier today on Fox and Friends.

Dash even went on to say that Black History Month should be eliminated because we are all considered Americans.

Twitter has been in an uproar ever since Dash shared her controversial commentary. See what some had to say below.

According to Twitter the “Clueless” star is living up to the title of the famous film.
