‘Golden Girls’ episode with blackface scene pulled from Hulu

“The Golden Girls” is the latest sitcom to have an episode pulled from a streaming service due to a scene depicting blackface.

Hulu has pulled “Mixed Blessings” (Season 3, Episode 23), which sees Dorothy’s son Michael planning to marry an older Black woman named Lorraine. Bea Arthur’s character worries about the nuptials due to the age difference, while Lorraine’s family disapproves of their daughter marrying a white man, and attempts are made on both sides to call the whole thing off. Lorraine’s family arrives just as Rose (Betty White) and Blanche (Rue McClanahan) are trying a new mud facial treatment, and as the two greet their new guests, Rose states, “This is mud on our faces, we’re not really Black.”
