Oscars and another viral Chrissy Teigen Meme
Stacey Dash‘s unexpected appearance at the Oscars left most of the audience confused, including Chrissy Teigen.
After host Chris Rock introduced the outspoken Republican as the Academy’s new director of the minority outreach program, Dash made her way to the stage and jokingly said, “Happy Black History Month,” following her criticism of the month-long celebration. As the cameras captured Teigen’s befuddled reaction, speculation arose that the 30-year-old supermodel was unimpressed with comedian Sarah Silverman’s monologue but not really.
“She was cringing from the Stacey Dash moment, not Sarah,” Teigen’s husband, John Legend said on Twitter.
During the 2015 Golden Globes, Teigen became an Internet meme after she tearfully watched Legend, 37, accept the prize for Best Original Song for “Selma.” Teigen took the joke in stride.
