Amid a national conversation and controversy surrounding USA politicians pictured in blackface, "The View" co-host Joy Behar has been silent about a photo of herself now sweeping social media.

"I was so cute", Behar said. "I went as a handsome African woman". The resurfaced clip was shared by The Wrap media editor Jon Levine which sparked endless comments and conversations on Twitter.

Joy Behar is a comedian known more recently for her hosting duties on The View. After Behar explained it was a costume, Raven-Symoné wanted to know if she had applied "tanning lotion" to her skin.

Surprised at Behar's appearance in the photo, former co-host Raven-Symoné jokingly asked her, "Are you my auntie?"

The television host said it was from a Halloween party years ago and that she was dressed as "a attractive African woman".

He added, "The fact is the president made a decision, and we are going to execute his orders here to withdraw from Syria". Cantlie has worked for several publications, including The Sunday Times , The Sun and The Sunday Telegraph .

The photo was shown during a segment of The View in 2016 about curly hair coming back in style. The curly hair was all her own.

Another Virginia Democrat, Attorney General Mark Herring, who led the charge in calling for Northam's resignation, was also forced to acknowledge that he, too, had worn blackface when he dressed as a rapper during a party at the University of Virginia in 1980 when he was 19.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham said that accusing Behar of racism would only feed into today's growing PC culture. "Joy Behar actually wore blackface, and admitted it, and showed a picture of it on TV, yet she still has her job".

Behar, a longtime co-host of ABC's "The View", is catching heat from critics who want to see her fired after a long-forgotten video of her explaining a questionable Halloween getup began circulating on social media. "Can you imagine if a photo surfaced of @SeanHannity in blackface from a Halloween party years ago?" wrote one person.

The audience and fellow co-hosts were demonstrably taken aback at how drastically different Behar looked, some of them giggling.
