Stacey Dash isn't going to stay quiet after receiving a shout-out at the NAACP Image Awards.

During Friday night's telecast, host Anthony Anderson kicked off the show with an opening monologue where he couldn't help but mention the Fox New commentator. In fact, he began to joke that she would be the first presenter of the evening.

"Everybody give a round of applause for Stacey Dash!" he told the crowd. "What the hell is she doing here? Doesn't she know that the Fox Network is using her? She's just an Ann Coulter dipped in butterscotch. That's all she is."

He continued, "Baby, don't let them use you! Come back to the black people."

Stacey later went to Twitter where she shared a cryptic Tweet during the show. While she didn't mention any names, many are speculating that her message was directed right at the Black-ish star.

"Well it's funny how woman who weighs 105 wet can get grown ass men to act like little girls! Haha," she shared Friday night.

The dialogue all started last month when the Clueless star sat down with Fox News' Fox & Friends where she suggested that African-American-targeted institutions such as the Image Awards should no longer exist.

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

Ultimately, the topic of diversity could not be ignored during Friday's show. In fact, Anthony brought it up once again when revealing Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were in the audience.

"Look at all these beautiful shades of people in the audience. Hollywood needs to know that this is what diversity is supposed to look like, right?" he said before joking about one A-list couple. "Will and Jada in our audience tonight. Hell, they better be here after all this ish they started."

In recent weeks, both Will and Jada have made it clear that they will not be attending the 2016 Academy Awards after examining the lack of diversity in nominees.
