The View's Joy Behar Under Fire for Resurfaced Blackface Photos

Joy Behar

Joy Behar is under scrutiny after a decades-old photo of her dressed as a "beautiful African woman" on Halloween recently resurfaced.

The Wrap media editor Jon Levine shared the 2016 clip, in which the ultra-liberal Behar is seen discussing a New York Times piece about the resurgence of curly hair, Fox News reported.

Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, jokingly asked, "Joy, are you Black?"

"It was a Halloween party, I went as a attractive African woman", Behar, an original host of The View since its debut 20 years ago, explained.

"I want to begin with two words, I'm sorry", she said on the show.

The View co-host Joy Behar is now the latest celebrity to spark outrage over a reported case of blackface.

"That's my hair!" Behar said, pushing the conversation about her hair during the segment.

In a statement , the Dodgers said: "We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs Goldbloom". The second incident occurred at Dodger Stadium in 1970 at a game between the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants .

Lakers have shown an interest in Chicago's Jabari Parker
Given the choice, Los Angeles may be better off with Anthony who is also LeBron James' close buddy. He's making $20 million this season and has a team option worth $20 million for next season.

"You mean blackface?" Symoné responded. It was a Halloween party. Raven-Symoné - who is black - continues her gentle ribbing of Behar, asking, "Are you my auntie, Joy?" and "Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?"

On Friday, Gov. Ralph Northam apologized after the emergence of a photograph on his 1984 medical school yearbook page that featured a man in blackface and another in KKK garb. The curly hair was all her own. In another twist, though, Northam did say he once darkened his face to look like pop icon Michael Jackson in a talent show.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring admitted Wednesday that he too had donned blackface for a costume.

In October, NBC host Megyn Kelly was canned from the network after comments concerning people dressing up as characters and celebrities of differing races on Halloween that critics decried as "racist".

The clip is even taking on more steam since Virginia Democrats are also coming under fire for old photos of them in blackface from their post-secondary days.

Messages seeking comment were left with her agent and the ABC program.
