"The View" co-host Joy Behar acknowledged wearing makeup that was "a little bit darker than my skin" as part of a Halloween costume where she dressed as a "beautiful African woman". The image of a 29-year-old Behar wearing makeup meant to darken her skin was aired on "The View" back in 2016 when the panel discussed the resurgence of naturally curly hair.

"Joy, are you black?" co-host Raven-Symoné asks.

Behar said she'd applied some "makeup that was a little bit darker than my skin". Raven asked, to which she responded, "I was so cute".

"That's my hair!" Behar said, pushing the conversation about her hair during the segment.

New York Knicks trade Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks
NY (10-40) has the worst record in the National Basketball Association and is headed toward landing a high pick in the draft. But they won't have Porzingis, who they once believed was the kind of talent who could help attract those players.

"Is that you, Joy?"

"There is a difference in Joy Behar dressing like a Black woman and someone doing blackface", someone wrote on Twitter.

She added, "I was 29".

"Joy, are you Black?. are you my auntie, Joy?" "I thought, like, who doesn't love Diana Ross?" said Kelly. However, after initially apologizing for being in the yearbook photo, Northam later claimed that he's not one of the people in the offensive yearbook photo. He then admitted he did once use shoe polish to darken his skin to resemble Michael Jackson for a dance contest in 1984.

Neeson has since apologized for his racist comments, telling " Good Morning America " on Tuesday, "I'm not racist", he said. The film is a remake of 2014 Norwegian film In Order Of Disappearance and also stars Emmy Rossum and Laura Dern.

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.

"I don't see how that is racist on Halloween", said Kelly, remarking on a cast member from Bravo's Real Housewives of NY getting into trouble for dressing up as legendary singer Diana Ross.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, also a Democrat, is similarly facing backlash after he admitted this week to wearing blackface during a college party in 1980.

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.
