NBC’s Megyn Kelly looks like she is out at the network and the reason centers around a “blackface” statement she made.
Since then, she has apologized and not only did she say she was sorry, she did it with tears. However, that still wasn’t enough for the execs who have seemingly removed her from the LIVE show for the rest of this week.
The View’s Joy Behar dressed as an African-American woman back in the 70s and was proud to talk about her curly hair and skin tone that she worked on to make the look authentic.
Behar talked in adoration of trying to look the part of a ‘beautiful African woman,’ even down to the makeup for her skin. Kelly brought up dressing to look like Diana Ross during her discussion, and her panel threw her to the wolves as if she should have never brought it up.
We’ve seen a lot of white women dress up like black women and vice versa over the years. White woman tan while black women use fading cream to lighten their skin. NBC went overboard with this “blackface” thing, but I still think it was more about Kelly defending Judge Brett Kavanaugh over Christine Blasey Ford than anything.
In an attempt to make some sort of point, Joy kept saying: “That’s my hair! That’s my hair!” which, yeah, we get it. What’s your point, Joy?
Clearly she’s trying to draw some sort of similarity between her short curly haircut and an afro, which, nope never nah. Joy looks like a white lady with white lady hair. That’s about it.
Joy helpfully notes, after being asked by Raven-Symoné if she was wearing tanning lotion, that she was in fact wearing makeup “little bit darker than [her] skin.” Yikes mcyikes.
If the timing is correct, that would date this photo around 1971. I can’t really get too bothered at this blackface-lite costume because it was 1971 and people didn’t even know what microaggressions were. I’m more flabbergasted by her willingness to pull this photo out and proudly show the world as if it’s totally cool in the year 2016.
What do you think about Behar dressing up like a black woman for Halloween? Do you think she should be fired today from the view for what happened back in 1971? Do you think Megyn Kelly should be fired for thinking it’s ok to dress up like this for Halloween if she wanted to?
