Joy Behar roasted for denying wearing blackface: ‘Enjoy the cancel culture you created’
“The View” co-host Joy Behar was roasted on social media after claiming in a heated interview with Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday that she never wore blackface, a claim that was quickly contradicted on Twitter by the president’s eldest son.
“[President Trump] called some Mexicans rapists, he attacked the handicapped, he bragged about it,” she said. “We heard the ‘Access’ tape, where he bragged about grabbing women by their genitalia.”
“We’ve all done things that we regret, I mean, if we’re talking about bringing a discourse down, Joy, you’ve worn blackface,” he responded.
“No, I have not,” Behar shot back.
“I know blackface when I see it and that was not blackface,” moderator Whoopi Goldberg eventually interjected.
Trump Jr. took to Twitter to share a story from TheWrap.com from a 2016 episode of “The View” that a discussion around Behar dressing up as what she described as “a beautiful African woman” at a Halloween party back in the 1970s.

“Here’s @TheView’s Joy Behar admitting on national TV that she in fact wore blackface. Why are they denying it now?” asked Trump Jr.
If only there were a search engine in which to plug in joy Behar and “blackface”. Sorry. “Dark makeup”.

Joy Behar and Whoopi were FURIOUS today that @DonaldJTrumpJr would dare accuse Joy of wearing “blackface.”
A few years ago, this is what she said:
“It was a Halloween party, I went as a beautiful African woman.”
