Julianne Hough: I’m Sorry I Thought Dressing In Blackface Would Be Cool

By  | 

Actress Julianne Hough is apologizing for wearing blackface to a Friday night Halloween party in Beverly Hills. Hough threw on a prison jumpsuit, covered her skin in dark makeup and knotted her hair in an effort to look like Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren from the Netflix series, Orange is the New Black.

The look didn’t sit well with the Internet community or press who began slamming the star’s poor decision. On Saturday, Hough admitted she hadn’t thought the costume out, tweeting:

“I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New Black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. 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.”

Talk about poor judgement. Are you buying Hough’s apology?

    You don’t deserve a comment, what a loser. You and your trail of followers-you should have remained in that albino face that you sport everyday whether it’s Halloween or not

    People dress in blackface because they are insensitive to the horrible history of blacks in the USA.
    Lest anyone believe that racism is not still prevalent in our country, I travel a great many states on business and pleasure. Racism is a staple throughout the USA – with particular presence in the Upper Midwest, the Deep South, and the Western Mountain States.
    Travel a bit, and pay attention, folks. While racism may show a different form, it is embarrassingly and pitifully in wide existence in our country.
    We believe our society is pure and clean – it is nothing of the kind.
