A minute-long video of ABC’s The View resurfaced on Wednesday, in which viewers are shown a photo of co-host Joy Behar dressed as a “beautiful African woman” taken at a Halloween party decades years ago.
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.”
Viewers are then shown a photograph of Joy Behar with curly hair taken and dressed as she said, “a beautiful African woman” when she was 29 years old, sparking an incredulous reaction from former co-host Raven Symoné and other panelists:
RAVEN-SYMONÉ: Joy, are you black?
BEHAR: I was so cute.
SYMONÉ: Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?
BEHAR: I was 29, it was a Halloween party. I went as a beautiful African woman.
SYMONÉ: Did you have tanning lotion on Joy?
BEHAR: I had make-up that was a little bit darker than my skin.
Joy Behar admitted during a taping of The View in 2016 to dressing as a “beautiful African women” at a Halloween party when she was 29 which involved makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin”
The show even ran an image of the old photo pic.twitter.com/qKQqzDPxyn
