Stacey Dash continues to comment on that moment during the Oscars.

The Clueless actress released a video on Monday of herself reading mean tweets from backstage at Sunday's ceremony, while also addressing some of the hate she's received since the show.

"I got no applause, no boos. Nothing," she said. "I think people were awestruck. Which was a little disappointing."

"I did it because I wanted to," Dash continued, explaining her choice to participate in the bit, where she was named as an Oscars diversity leader by show host Chris Rock. "Chris asked me to do it, and I love him, and support him. And I also think that I should be the head of diversity at the Oscars."

"There are a lot of people who don't agree with me, and have very mean things to say, which I will never live down," the actress added. "I do what I do because I want to do it. It has nothing to do with race, and I wish you would stop saying that."

"Everything I do is because I believe in it, and I believe we are all equal," she noted.

"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," she explained. "If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It's a double standard."
