TheWrap’s Jon Levine dug up an old clip from The View in 2016 when host Joy Behar showed off a photo of herself dressed as a “beautiful African woman.”

The other women oohed and ahhed over it, but the clip did not cause much of a controversy. However, in light of the blackface scandals lately, it continues to show the hypocrisy. Liberals get a free pass while conservatives receive fire.

Behar brought it up because she discussed an op-ed in The New York Times about naturally curly hair.

Oh, wait. She “darkened” her skin because that makes it so much better.

From Fox News:

The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, asked a the time, “Joy, are you black?”

“I was so cute,” Behar said in the 2016 clip.

“Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar then explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” and stressed that it was her actual hair.

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

Behar responded by saying she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

Symone then said, “Yeah, but you ain’t Black.”

As Levine pointed out, Jezebel blasted Behar for showing off a picture of herself in blackface. Kara Brown wrote, “I can’t really get too bothered at this blackface-lite costume because it was 1971 and people didn’t even know what microaggressions were. I’m more flabbergasted by her willingness to pull this photo out and proudly show the world as if it’s totally cool in the year 2016.”

People on Twitter quickly pointed out that NBC fired Megyn Kelly just for bringing up blackface.

I tried to find excerpts from The View on all the controversies in Virginia, especially the blackface photo Gov. Ralph Northam and AG Mark Herring admitting he wore blackface at a college party.

The program has not touched it!
