A photo of “View” host Joy Behar dressed as a “beautiful African woman” is resurfacing amidst numerous blackface scandals.
Joy Behar is explaining an old photo of herself portraying a “beautiful African woman” that resurfaced from an episode of “The View” in 2016.
Behar, co-host of the daytime talk show, was seen bragging about a picture of herself where she boasted curly hair when she was 29 years old.
“Joy, are you black?” co-host Raven-Symoné asks.
“I was so cute,” Behar says, saying she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” for a Halloween party and sported her natural curly hair and makeup that was “a little darker than my skin.”
The story has emerged as various racial sandals continue to emerge, with Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam facing intense scrutiny for allegedly donning blackface for a Michael Jackson dance party more than 30 years ago.
USA TODAY has contacted Behar’s representatives for comment.
Joy Behar of “The View” apologized Tuesday for suggesting mental illness was behind claims by people that Jesus Christ talks to them, in remarks made on her show last month about Vice President Mike Pence.
