How is it that news comes out that Joy Behar used blackface years ago, and nobody is calling for her to step down. But Megyn Kelly makes a COMMENT about blackface and she is fired. Mind=boggling.
NEW YORK (AP) — Joy Behar and ABC were silent Thursday after an old photo resurfaced of “The View” co-host using makeup to darken her skin for a Halloween costume, the latest flashpoint in a series of blackface scandals making national headlines.
The 76-year-old didn’t mention the clip on Thursday’s show, one day after an editor for the entertainment website The Wrap tweeted the three-year-old segment of Behar discussing a resurgence of curly hair.
During the 2016 segment, Behar displayed a 1970s-era photo of herself at a Halloween party when she was 29. She says that the hair was her own and that she had dressed as a “beautiful African woman.”
Co-host Raven-Symone asked whether she had on tanning lotion. Behar, an outspoken liberal, said she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.
Messages seeking comment were not returned from Behar’s agent and the ABC program.
Here is video from The View. Joy says, I went to the Halloween Party 'as a beautiful African woman' and the crowd and the rest of the panel are all laughs.
