Julianne Hough’s ‘Blackface’ Halloween Costume Leads To Twitter Apology

Crazy Eyes - Orange is the New Black - Julianne Hough Blackface

Actress Julianne Hough dressed in “blackface” to complete her Halloween costume and that decision immediately led to widespread criticism and threats.

Following her ill-advised decision to dress as the character Crazy Eyes from Orange Is The New Black the actress took to Twitter where she offered a half-full apology.

The full message reads:

“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.”

Okay maybe that didn’t read like a full apology from Julianne Hough but it sure beats dressing like a character with blackface, regardless of how innocent the gesture was meant.
