Anthony Anderson isn’t very sweet on Stacey Dash.

During the NAACP Image Awards on Friday, February 5, Anderson called out Dash for some of her controversial statements about BET and Black History Month, which came after some celebrities called for a boycott of the Oscars due to the lack of nominations received by actors of color.

“Everybody give a round of applause for Stacey Dash,” the host said in his opening monologue at the awards before throwing jabs at the Clueless actress, 49.

“What the hell is she doing?” Anderson, 45, asked the audience that included Michael B. Jordan, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. "Doesn’t she know that the Fox network is using her? She’s just an Ann Coulter dipped in butterscotch.”

Coulter, a conservative commentator, is known for making controversial statements.

“Baby, don’t let ‘em use you! Come back to the black people,” he continued. “Get back to working some of those beautiful C movies that you used to do. I promise I will see them!”

Never one to hold her tongue, Dash tweeted a response later that night.

“Well it’s funny how [a] woman who weights 105 wet! Can get grown-ass men to act like little girls! Haha,” she posted.

Dash, who is a Fox commentator, has been criticized by many since her January 20 appearance on Fox & Friends, where she gave her stance on Black History Month and BET.

“Either we want to have segregation or integration,” she stated. “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.”

That same day, BET Instagrammed a screenshot of Dash, who appeared on their sitcom The Game in 2009, with a caption, “Can we get our check back…or nah?”

Dash also asserted that “there shouldn’t be a Black History Month. … We’re Americans. Period,” on her January 20 Fox & Friends appearance.

Gabrielle Union shaded the actress at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26.

"Who's that? Who's Stacey Dash? Is she, like, related to Dame Dash? Was she on Roc-A-Fella?" she asked, after being asked about the controversial remarks. “If you don’t see yourself reflected in mainstream awards, you tend to create your own. … The more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say.”
