Vocal rapper Bun B slammed Fox News contributor and actress Stacey Dash for her recent comments about the backlash the Academy is receiving for the lack of diversity among this year's nominees. 

The former Clueless star shared her thoughts on Wednesday's Fox And Friends (Jan. 20), suggesting that networks of color like BET should be done away with as well as prestigious ceremonies like the NAACP Image Awards and even Black History Month.

Bun B Endorses Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders

“We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration,” she said. “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. If it were the other way around, we would be up in arms. It’s a double standard. There shouldn’t be a Black History Month. You know? We’re Americans. Period. That’s it.”

Bun B then issued a fiery response in a post that has now been removed by Instagram, according to the Houston rap legend and confirmed by his rep to Billboard. According to XXL, the lengthy caption read:

“For everyone that didn’t know that looks don’t mean a goddamn thing if the inside of you is ugly as fuck here’s your proof,” the remaining half of UGK wrote in a caption for a photo of Stacey Dash. “Her black skin drives her crazy. And as hard as she tries to separate herself from the black community, she doesn’t even realize her token role as a pawn in their game. You’re black. Hating yourself and us won’t make them love you. The best you’ll ever here is “You’re not like the rest of them” and if that works for you then cool. #TheBiggestCoonInTheRoom.”

On Thursday (Jan. 21), Bun B tweeted how he "can't wait" to see Fox News' reaction about the removed Instagram post.

"Can't wait to see if Fox News gets at me for my comments. Bringing up my lyrics and shit. They don't want it," he wrote, along with a link to an iconic Cam'ron moment on The O' Reilly Factor, where the Harlem MC simply said, "You mad!" to controversial pundit Bill O'Reilly. 

Bun B added, "So the Stacey Dash sympathizers flagged my picture on Instagram and got it removed. Doesn't stop the Trill!"
