NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A photo of another public figure wearing blackface many years ago has surfaced. 

On Wednesday, Virginia's attorney general acknowledged that he, too, put on blackface once when he was a college student, while Virginia's Gov. Ralph Northam's career is already teetering over a racist photo in his 1984 medical school yearbook allegedly showing him in blackface.

Now video of "The View" co-host Joy Behar discussing how she dressed as a "beautiful African woman" at a Halloween party nearly 50 years ago has resurfaced.

During a segment on the talk show in 2016, Behar and the panel were discussing an op-ed about naturally curly hair.

That's when a picture of Behar was put up on the screen with her sporting curly hair and darker skin, prompting then co-host Raven Symone to ask "Is that you? She looks black. She looks black," Symone said.

Symone then asked Behar if she had tanning lotion on.

Behar said she attended the party when she was 29 and wore makeup that was "a little bit darker than my skin."

Some in the Twitterverse are wondering why Megyn Kelly was fired for discussing blackface while ABC has done nothing with Behar.

Some wonder if Behar too should be fired.
