‘Golden Girls’ Episode with Blackface* Scene Removed from Hulu



*the "blackface" is actually a mud mask.

“Mixed Blessings,” episode 23 in season 3 of the sitcom, aired in 1988. The episode features a storyline where Dorothy's son Michael gets engaged to an older black women named Lorraine and her mother is against the interracial relationship. Lorraine’s family arrives as Rose (Betty White) and Blanche (Rue McClanahan) are testing out a new mud face treatment. The two greet the family with their masks still on, saying to them “This is mud on our faces, we’re not really Black.”

A scene from the episode with said mud masks:

what are your thoughts on this, ONTD? Do you think this is an over-correction or do you agree with the removal of this episode?
