Julianne Hough Donned Blackface for Halloween, Is Really Sorry

Not in blackface.

By now, we know that blackface is never a good idea. At least we should, right? But that didn’t stop Julianne Hough from dressing as her favorite Orange Is The New Black character, Crazy Eyes, at a Casamigos Tequila Halloween party Friday night (see it here). Naturally, the Paradise star apologized before you could say “I will cut you!” “I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created,” she tweeted. “It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.”
