‘Is This The Same Joy That Paraded Around in Blackface?’: Black GOP Candidate Calls Out Joy Behar on ‘The View’ (Watch)



Things went left on “The View” Friday with the appearance of a Black guest from the right.

Kim Klacik, the Maryland GOP candidate running for Baltimore’s congressional seat last held by the late Democrat Elijah Cummings, gained national attention over the summer after her campaign ad showed her walking through the city’s poorest neighborhoods and blaming Democratic leadership for poverty and crime.

All parties were appearing on “The View” from their homes due to social distancing. Klacik, 38, had already gotten side-eye vibes after spending the first part of her interview defending President Trump’s racism by citing his restoration of “funding for HBCUs” and “criminal justice reform.” When co-host Joy Behar called her out for refusing to acknowledge that Trump lied about the severity of the coronavirus, Klacik asked, “Is this Joy speaking? The same Joy that paraded around in blackface not too long ago?”

Behar became enraged. “That’s not true. Excuse me — excuse me! The Black community had my back,” she said. “They know that that was not blackface. That was an homage. Oh, please.”

“The Black community has my back as well,” Klacik replied.

That’s when co-host Sunny Hostin jumped in. “The Black community has your back? 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?”

“Sunny, can I speak? It was during a special election while we were still under lockdown—” Klacik explained before getting cut off again by Hostin.

“Wow! Wow!” Hostin continued.

“Can I speak, or are you just going to scream over me?” Klacik asked.

“All right, before this becomes a big — listen, Kim, good luck to you. Thanks to Kim Klacik. Bye,” Behar said, cutting the interview short.

“That’s being very immature, but thank you for having me,” Klacik said.

Watch below:

Later Klacik took to Twitter to criticize Behar.

“The ladies of @TheView didn’t like what I had to say, so naturally they cut me off,” she wrote. “Why are they silencing Black Women? Hey, @JoyVBehar — I think your White Privilege is showing through your blackface!”

Klacik lost to Kweisi Mfume (D) in an April special election earlier this year. She’s now facing off against Mfume again in November’s general election.

In 2016, Behar admitted on “The View” that she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” for a Halloween party when she was 29 years old.

Joy Behar dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” for a Halloween party when she was 29.

She said her curly Afro was her real hair but that she used makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

vaughn mitchell you are a dumb n***** sit your porch monkey ass down and catch a banana from the white democrats, we know what it is about, it aint our fault if your dumb ass who went to a black college cannot follow conversation, they are discussing politics or else you can tell us why are they telling her that the black community did not have her back, politics is not a one way or side conversation, when you make dumb decisions in politics and you are always wining and complaining there will be some of us who will point it out and make suggestions, the community as become a charity case, if you dont have anything to contribute be a n***** in the project and collect that $300 stimulus from unemployment and smoke all the weed you dumb n*****, go massa Biden, niggers love you, lol

@ john, you sound like a uncle Tom, and coon, just like me 1 dick, the discussion is not about biden , it's a about a black woman who is trying to show a white woman that did blackface, but the black community had get back but no black people had the black woman's back, because she is an idiot. Do while ya'll kissing lying Trump's ass , who lied about the virus, divide the country, stealing tax payers money and want to become a dictator like his buddy Putin, you act like he is doing. Why don't talk go shake his hand. On the other hand he call his voters disgusting, for shaking their hands.

john those negros dont care to do their research about Biden or any candidate, ask them why they dont like Trump they will tell you the same reasons that their leaders tell them to, none of them actually sit down with their kids or family to research and discuss the candidate they are voting for, and they dont care about being dumb, as soon as you ask them a question about the person they are voting for they start to argue, than they keep on complaining, at what point do any of these niggers sit and ask their selves if those people tell them to vote like their lives depend on it how come there are still so many issues? I would think someone would get tired and face the people they vote for, but like a bunch of monkeys blaming republicans, if you dont vote republican why should they be concern about you, why are they your business, this s*** is embarrassing

Black power you hit on the head, I totally agree with you. Biden did more damage to the black community with his 1994 crime bill and the sheep just ignore it

Lol thats the problem with negros they keep following their white masters and keeping them happy, if youre black with your own views and make decisions different from them they want you dead and they are calling white people racist, why cant a black person be different why they have to follow you and live live slaves, you keep making poor decisions in voting with nothing to show for, you cant even pick your own candidate, your favorite celebrities are paid by the democratic party to tell you who to vote for, and every election they tell you tje same lies, vote because your lives spend on it but they get to watch you die everyday as they watch your family crying and begging on Tv. Where are those superstars when you have problems do they help you pay your bills, now Michelle Obama is about to spend 7 hours online to tell you who tp vote for, how much are they paying her, but if you were smart wouldnt you ask your self what if those celebrities parade around those politicians for the issues in the black community instead of marching and begging, does that make sense to you? So sad, if only they knew they were slaves they would be free
