Joy Behar describes dressing as African woman in 2016 clip

A new posting of a 2016 segment of "The View" is drawing attention to co-host Joy Behar, who in it shows a photo of herself in costume as an African woman.

Political pundit and Fox News host Laura Ingraham defended The View co-host Joy Behar, encouraging media and the public to treat Behar fairly over images that surfaced appearing to show her with a darkened face and afro-like hair.

Behar's former co-host Raven-Symoné had a lot of questions about the photo.

"It was a Halloween party, I went as a attractive African woman", Behar, an original host of The View since its debut 20 years ago, explained.

"I was so cute", she said, emphasizing that the curly tresses on her head were all hers.

In the show, Behar showed her colleagues and the studio audience a photograph of herself with curly hair when she was 29. "Do you have tanning lotion on?"

"Yeah, but you ain't black", Symoné said under breath. "Are you my auntie, Joy?" the star asks. 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.

BEHAR: I was 29, it was a Halloween party. But he confessed that on a separate occasion, he dressed as singer Michael Jackson.

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.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring admitted Wednesday that he too had donned blackface for a costume. Kelly faced a major backlash after making the comments on air and made an apology during the next show. "Who doesn't love Diana Ross?"

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.
