“I was so cute,” Behar said.

“Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” her then co-host Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar continues to state that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a

“beautiful African woman.”

however, Joy made it a point to stress that it was her actual hair.

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

Joy explains that she was wearing a shade of makeup that was darker than her natural skin tone.

This video comes at a pivotal time in the US as various Democrats are being called out for their blackface “costumes” decades ago.

One example is Governor Ralph Northam who was pictured in a school yearbook in blackface alongside a man dressed in a KKK robe.

Following the picture of Northam being released, Democratic Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring said that he should resign due to the action. However, in s statement released earlier this week, Herring says that he also wore blackface in college.
