The View is silent as Joy Behar comes under fire for wearing blackface

Blackface seems to be the new #MeToo.

And The View’s Joy Behar is the latest public figure to come under fire after old Halloween photos and a segment on the show surfaced that show the TV host darkened her skin for a costume.

Co-host at the time Raven Symone seemed shocked it was Behar in the photo, saying, “Joy, are you black?”

Behar then said that the photo was from a Halloween party and she had dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” but clarified it was her real hair.

“Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?” Raven-Symoné asked.

Behar responded, saying her makeup “was a little bit darker than my skin.”

ABC, The View and Behar have remained silent on the clip.

Others noted that NBC’s Megyn Kelly was fired for less.
