Joy Behar suffered a meltdown on The View on Friday after the black Republican called her out for wearing blackface.
“Excuse me! Excuse me! The black community has my back… that was an homage!” Behar said as she started to lose it.
“I believe the coronavirus pandemic would affect us more, I mean, look at my campaign ad, look at the living conditions. That would affect us more, absolutely, that’s why I’m running for office,” Klacik said as she defended President Trump.
Behar shot back: “Come on Kim, excuse me, I have to say something to you. He told Bob Woodward that it was a very serious issue and it’s airborne, and that it’s terrible, then he told the American people ‘don’t wear masks, it’s all going to go away.’ You have to put some blame on your president, talk to the point, please.”
Klacik responded by calling Behar out for wearing black face, saying, “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, I am an African American—”
“Excuse me! Excuse me! The black community has my back… that was an homage!” Behar claimed as she interrupted.
The View co-host, Sonny Hoskins, tried to come to Behar’s rescue by rudely shouting down Klacik so Klacik couldn’t be heard.
The Millennial reported:
Sonny Hoskins jumped in to insult Klacik as well, saying that the black community does not support her, and asking “what planet are you living on?”
When Hoskins interrupted to contradict Klacik’s point that the black community has her back, Behar thought she was talking to her, and defended herself against Hoskins before she realized that Hoskins was going after Klacik.
“The black community did not vote for you!” Hoskins said.
Klacik tried to speak about the special election that saw her elected, but instead of letting her speak Hoskins just said “wow” really loudly so that Klacik could not be heard. Then Behar cut her off, wished her luck, and ended the segment.
Klacik became a national figure when she launched her campaign video last month, which showed her walking through Baltimore and talking to residents who were fed up with Democrat leaders who have done nothing for the community despite decades of leadership.
