ABC Silent on Behar Blackface
ABC has yet to release a statement on “View” host Joy Behar dressing as a black woman, replete with light blackface.
ABC News communications head Julie Townsend did not return Big League Politics’ request for comment on whether the Disney-owned network stands behind Behar, who showed her “African woman” costume on the air.
Joy Behar, the anti-President Trump commentator on ABC’s “The View,” wore blackface at the age of 29 to a Halloween party.
“It was a Halloween party, I went as a beautiful African woman,” Behar said in a past View segment in which she revealed the photo of herself.
Asked if she had tanning lotion on, Behar replied: “I had makeup that was a little bit darker than my skin.”
Jezebel flagged the segment in 2016.
Mz. Behar has called President Trump a racist.
