Bristol Palin has finally spoken out on the ongoing Academy Awards controversy.

Thank goodness, right? We know how badly you've been waiting for her opinion on this topic.

Over the past few weeks, the hashtag #OscarSoWhiteControversy has gone viral as critics have reacted to the fact that no men or women or color were nominated for any significant Oscars in 2016. 

Jada Pinkett Smith has said she will boycott the event as a result, while Stacey Dash has taken the opposite tact, calling for the end to Black History Month because it encourages segregation.

Where does Bristol come down on this subject?

"[As] far as what I have seen about the #OscarSoWhiteControversy, it seems Jada Pinkett Smith started it because her husband wasn't getting nominated," she said, referring to Will Smith's alleged snub for his role in Concussion.

She added:

"I don't know how other people think about it, but I hope my son sees early on – that not everyone gets a trophy."

Bristol, who recently slammed Tina Fey's looks, also blogged her agreement with Dash, writing on her official website:

"Either we want to have segregation or integration. If we don’t want segregation then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the NAACP Image Awards."

Despite being unfamiliar with their work, Palin also used statements from rappers Waka Flocka Flame and Ice Cube to build her case.

"I have to admit, I don't know who 'Waka Flocka' is, or what he sings, but I agree with him on this!" she wrote.

"Though [Ice Cube] didn't mention Stacey by name, isn't it interesting how he echoed her sentiments exactly."

Palin concluded:

"We shouldn't segregate ourselves or limit Black History Month to one month a year. I wish things were really colorblind… I don't know what we can do as a society to come together as one."
