Joy Behar, liberal icon and co-host of ‘The View,’ is the latest leftist to appear in blackface in a recently-discovered photo.
The photo, from the early-1970s, shows a barely-recognizable Behar in dark make-up as part of a Halloween costume when she was 29-years-old.
Video from a 2016 taping of “The View” reveals co-host Joy Behar darkened her skin to dress like an “African woman” for Halloween when she was 29.
The segment was focused on the “feminist statement” of embracing naturally curly hair. This triggered Behar to show off a photo of her 29-year-old self in the controversial costume, proudly boasting about her natural curls and how “cute” she was.
Former co-host Raven-Symoné was shocked when the photo first appeared on screen. “Joy, is that you, Joy?” she asked. “Joy, is that you? Joy, are you black?”
“I was 29,” explained Behar. “I went as a beautiful African woman.”
“Oh, you ain’t black,” Raven-Symoné muttered in response.
Reacting to Raven-Symoné’s clear change of tone, Behar asked, “Why are you upset with me now?”
“Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?” Raven-Symoné asked.
“I had makeup that was a little bit darker than my skin,” Behar explained. …

Ironically, Kelly’s comments merely discuss the type of costume Behar actually wore and proudly showed off to a live audience. …
