The Wrap media editor Jon Levine resurfaced an old clip of "The View" on Wednesday in which hosts, including Joy Behar, discuss Behar's past use of blackface for a Halloween costume.

Video of the 2016 episode posted by Levine shows Behar discussing the photo in a joking manner with then-co-hosts including Raven-Symone, who asked Behar: "Joy, are you black?"


"Joy — are you my auntie, Joy?" the "That's So Raven" star, who is black, jokes in the video. "Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?"

Behar responds, admitting that she used makeup "that was a little bit darker than my skin."

Levine's video had been viewed hundreds of thousands of time by Thursday morning. ABC News didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

The video depicting Behar discussing her use of blackface comes as Virginia's state government is engulfed in controversy over two separate admissions of wearing blackface in the past from Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and Attorney General Mark Herring (D).

The state's lieutenant governor, Justin Fairfax (D), is also battling accusations of sexual assault that surfaced this week.

Numerous Democrats, including both of Virginia's senators, called on Northam to resign in the days following his admission last week that he wore blackface to a dance party and discovery of a photo depicting men in blackface and KKK robes on his medical school yearbook page.
