Joy Behar reveals her own blackface photo on 'The View'

Joy Behar faces backlash over old 'African woman' costume

WATCH: Joy Behar Darkened Skin To Dress As 'African Woman' For Halloween

When Behar was 29 years old, she apparently dressed up as a "beautiful African woman" for Halloween, complete with makeup to make her skin darker. "Joy Behar actually wore blackface, and admitted it, and showed a picture of it on TV, yet she still has her job". "[Behar] clearly stated she put on makeup darker than her skin for a "beautiful African woman" Halloween costume".

The clip, re-shared by The Wrap media editor Jon Levine, begins with Behar referencing a New York Times Style Magazine op-ed arguing that curly hair was "making a comeback".

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.

"Yeah, but you ain't black", Symoné said under breath. After Behar explained it was a costume, Raven-Symoné wanted to know if she had applied "tanning lotion" to her skin. Northam, who advocated for infanticide earlier this month, initially copped to the photo, but now is claiming it is not him in the photo. But he confessed that on a separate occasion, he dressed as singer Michael Jackson. "I thought, like, who doesn't love Diana Ross?" said Kelly. The Democrat has told reporters that he can still moonwalk, and seemingly nearly demonstrated this before his wife told him it was inappropriate.

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who's next in line to take Northam's position if the governor were to resign, is now facing an accusation of sexual assault which Fairfax has suggested was leaked by Northam's team. Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring also revealed that he and his friends "dressed like rappers" and wore "brown makeup" while attending a party in college. The Democratic leader later said he was not in the photo and hadn't seen it before.

In the fall, NBC Today anchor Megyn Kelly was ousted from the network after defending blackface.

The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. "Back when I was a kid, that was okay as long as you were dressing up as like a character".
