FLASHBACK: The View’s Joy Behar Once Dressed In Blackface For A Party (VIDEO)

Since blackface has been in the news lately, due to the governor of Virginia, you would think The View would have something to say about this old clip. Joy Behar apparently went to a party once as a “beautiful African woman.”

FOX News reports:

‘The View’ silent on Joy Behar’s resurfaced blackface photo wearing ‘beautiful African woman’ costume

ABC News’ “The View” co-host Joy Behar remained stone silent Thursday regarding old footage of her donned in blackface that was unearthed this week as similar images have caused outrage and derailed careers.

Behar did not address the situation during the first episode of “The View” to air after her controversial decades-old image caused an uproar on social media.

ABC News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Footage of Behar dressing up as a “beautiful African woman” was resurfaced by TheWrap media editor Jon Levine on Wednesday amid a series of blackface scandals making national headlines. The image of a 29-year-old Behar wearing makeup intended to darken her skin was aired on “The View” back in 2016 when the panel discussed the resurgence of naturally curly hair.

The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, asked a the time, “Joy, are you black?”

“I was so cute,” Behar said in the 2016 clip.
