"I was so cute", Behar said in the clip. She asked, "Are you black, Joy?" followed by, "Are you my auntie, Joy?"
BEHAR: I was 29, it was a Halloween party.
The photo, which shows the comedian dressed as what she called "a attractive African woman", was seen several years ago during an episode of the morning show. "Do you have tanning lotion on?"
"It was a Halloween party, I went as a lovely African woman", Behar, an original host of The View since its debut 20 years ago, explained.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham said that accusing Behar of racism would only feed into today's growing PC culture. "I thought, like, who doesn't love Diana Ross?" said Kelly.
"What is racist?" she asked "Because truly you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween".
Another added: "Megan Kelly was ripped apart and fired from her job for asking a hypothetical question about it! Joy Behar actually wore blackface, and admitted it, and showed a picture of it on TV, yet she still has her job".
Messages seeking comment were not returned from Behar's agent and the ABC program. Florida Secretary of State Michael Ertel resigned last month after a photo surfaced showing him wearing blackface and dressing as a "Hurricane Katrina victim".
However, she certainly has defenders. "Even if she's often unfair to conservatives - stick to basic principles of fairness", Ingraham tweeted on Thursday morning about the Behar image.
