Gabrielle Union threw major shade at Stacey Dash during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival.

Union was attending the screening of The Birth of a Nation when a reporter asked what she thought about Dash’s recent comments about BET and Black History Month.

“Who’s that? Who’s Stacey Dash? Is she, like, related to Dame Dash? Was she on Roc-a-Fella [Records]?” Union joked.

Union went on to speak about the importance of networks like BET, as well as the importance of the NAACP Image Awards and the American Latino Media Arts, or ALMA, Awards because mainstream award shows have always lacked diversity.

“The more that we focus on inclusion and a true representation of this country, I think that crazy lady will have less to say,” Union said.
