Following Stacey Dash’s declaration that Black History Month should be cancelled right along with the BET network, the internet came to the conclusion that she would be traded for someone who’s not only white but “woke” to the importance of having these celebrations of black culture. In a hilarious meme, Dash was traded for none other than comedian Gary Owen who took great pride in the news. Upon seeing the meme, he wrote on IG “Is everyone ok with this trade? Let me know so I can call my publicist & get a statement prepared.”

Clearly, everyone seemed to be okay with the trade because Owen posted a hilarious statement to celebrate his first Black History Month, poking fun at Stacey Dash yesterday.

While, Stacey Dash was getting schooled about Black History , Gary Owen posted a photo of him and his dog on his gram. With a huge smile on his face, he captioned the photo,

This is my 1st Black History Month since I got traded for Stacy Dash.
