Stacey Dash Slams Leonardo DiCaprio's Oscars Speech Climate Change Comments

Stacey Dash's appearance at the Academy Awards was one of the strangest parts of the night, and now she is criticizing one of the memorable moments — Leonardo DiCaprio's acceptance speech after winning the Best Actor Oscar for "The Revenant."

In a blog post Thursday titled: "Leonardo DiCaprio, quit being Chicken Little – the Sky is not falling," the Fox News contributor ripped into the Hollywood star's stance against climate change.

"He reminds me of Chicken Little, the bird who ran around the neighborhood and disturbed everyone 'with her foolish alarm,' Dash wrote, along with posting an image from the classic children's book (below).

Chicken Little

"Before making a speech the world would hear, he should have double checked his facts," she said, and then went on to quote Reason Magazine's reaction to the actor's stats on global warming.

"DiCaprio is right that global average temperatures have been rising in recent years, but, as an article in Nature Climate Change just last week acknowledged, temperature has been rising much less rapidly than projected by most computer climate models," Reason Magazine reported. "If this lower rate were sustained, it would substantially undercut claims that the world faces an urgent and impending climate catastrophe."

After dishing out more information on the Maunder Minimum and the Ice Age, the "Clueless" actress concluded: "There are people 10 miles from Leo starving, stuck on entitlement. Twenty first century NAZIS to deal with and North Koreans playing with nukes.

"He needs to get his priorities straight. I would leave him alone, except that his rhetoric isn't cheap."

At least Dash conceded that DiCaprio's victory "was truly a well deserved win," which is more than we can say about her awkward appearance to wish everyone a "happy Black History Month."
