The View’s Joy Behar shuts down interview after GOP candidate Kimberly Klacik invokes ‘blackface’ controversy

The View quickly ended an interview with GOP congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik after she invoked an old controversy involved co-panelist Joy Behar.

Behar called for a commercial break on Friday after Klacik, who is black, brought up a Halloween costume of an “African woman” she wore in the 1970s.

The blowup took place after Klacik said she did not believe President Trump’s rhetoric about the coronavirus resulted in more lives being lost, a comment which set Behar off, demanding that she put some “blame on your president.”

“Is this Joy speaking? The same Joy that paraded around in blackface not too long ago? Come on Joy, I don’t think you should be asking these questions,” the GOP candidate running for Maryland’s 7th Congressional District, retorted.

Behar shot back, “That’s not true. Excuse me — excuse me. The black community had my back. They know that that was not blackface. That was an homage. Oh, please.”

Klacik added, “The black community has my back as well.”

“The black community has your back?” co-host Sunny Hostin cut in. “The black community has your back? The black community did not vote for you. The black community did not vote for you. What planet are you living on? What planet are you living on?”

Meghan McCain, Sara Haines, and Ana Navarro sat quietly during the debacle until McCain asked for everyone to “be respectful, please.”

Behar then ended the interview, and the show went to a commercial break. The matter was not brought up again when the show returned from the break.

Behar wore the controversial Halloween costume when she was 29, dressing up as a “beautiful African woman,” as she once called it on the show. Behar, who is now 77, has said her costume included “makeup that was a little bit darker than my skin” but said she used her “actual hair.”
