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?
