Hulu removes the episode from the ‘Golden Girls’ mud mask, causing a rejection:’ What the hell?

Hulu removed a 1988 episode of “The Golden Girls” in which actresses Betty White and Rue McClanahan wear black clay on their faces, according to various reports on Monday, and the decision sparked a backlash on social media.

In the episode in question, titled “Mixed Blessing,” Beaothy’s son Dorothy plans to marry an older black woman played by Rosalind Cash.

“This is mud on our faces,” says White in the season 3 episode when Cash’s family arrives. “We are not really black.”

The broadcast company’s decision follows similar movements after the death of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis last month that sparked protests across the country against police brutality and racial injustice.

Last week, Tina Fey requested that four episodes of “30 Rock” be removed from NBCUniversal’s streaming service for her use of blackface.

Days later, Hulu removed three episodes of the television comedy “Scrubs” from its platform because they included blackface.

However, Hulu’s latest decision was criticized as an example of overreaction by social media users, including African-Americans.

“The Golden Girls” aired on NBC from 1985 to 1992.
