Should Host Joy Behar Be Removed From ‘The View’ for Blackface Costume?

'The View’ Host Joy Behar Under Heat from Using Blackface

An old photo of “The View” co-host Joy Behar resurfaced. In the photo, it is seen that she is using makeup to darken her skin for a Halloween costume, explained by Associated Press as “the latest flashpoint in a series of blackface scandals making national headlines.”

An editor for The Wrap tweeted a 2016 segment of Behar discussing the rebirth of curly hair, but Behar did not mention the clip on the show the day after it was tweeted. The segment shows Behar showing a 1970s-era photo of herself when she was 29, saying she was dressed as a “beautiful African woman.” Co-host Raven Symone asked if she was wearing tanning lotion, in which Behar responded that she was wearing makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

Critics pointed out that NBS cut ties with Megyn Kelly when she created an uproar “by suggesting that it was OK for white people to wear blackface on Halloween.” Moreover, Virginia’s governor and attorney general are being criticized for their use of blackface, and Florida Secretary of State Michael Ertel resigned after a photo of him wearing blackface and dressing as a “Hurricane Katrina victim” resurfaced.

In a recent report, Donald Trump Jr. attacked Behar by saying “We have all done things that we regret. If we’re talking about bringing the discourse down, Joy. You have worn blackface” during his appearance on the ABC morning show.

Behar addressed her controversial makeup choices. “I did not go in blackface,” Behar said. Whoopi Goldberg backed her up and said “No, she was not in blackface. Listen, being black, I recognize blackface, this I can say.”

But the question remains, should Behar be removed from her position on the show? Tell us in the comment section below.

      100% agreed ! This show is so far off what we want to see. I’ve gone to The talk on CBS. It is not political in any way. The View is terrible and shame on ABC for keeping it on the air.

    Definitely yes she needs to go. She shouldn’t be able to get away with it just because she’s a Demoncrap. The show needs to be taken off the air anyway. All they do is spread hate.

    I dislike Behar for several reasons and there have been plenty of opportunities to fire the witch, but the “blackface” picture is the least of her problems. In fact, it’s the only picture of seen of her where she is actually kind of pretty. Overall, the show is toxic. Cancel the whole thing.

    Joy is a complete disgrace and a rich hypocrite. She is a Never Trumper who will disavow any thinking that is not hers. Secondly she was definitely in blackface and should be immediately fired. The only guest on that show is Megan MaCain, who tries to stand up to all the other closed mind bitches. Joy being the head knucklehead. Get rid of her.

    I think it’s sad that with all the hatred in the world and our kids going to war and not coming back or coming back broken , and this is all we have to worry about. I wish this was the least of all of our problems. Plus that was from a few years ago, why didn’t we do this then if it was a big deal? I wish we didn’t have so much racism in the world. I say leave it alone and quit making trouble where we don’t need to! We need to concentrate on our troops and pray they’ll get home safe and sound. I love you America, May you stand long and proud and I hope we didn’t let you down too much!🥰🥰🥰

    She,s so nasty all the time. I don,t know why WHOOPIE lied for her, she admitted going to a Halloween party as a beautiful black woman. I miss the “old” WHOOPIE. Such talent,she,s wasting it on a hateful show. I have been a fan of hers since she was a skinny little kid. Jumpin Jack Flash was terrific, Sister Act also. Don,t think she has done anything that WASN,t a winner. But since Joy the show has become very hateful.
    God bless you WHOOPIE, do the right thing. Thank you for your years of giving us such joy. Cookie
