Julianne Hough Wears Blackface Halloween Costume

Julianne Hough apologizes for Blackface Costume

Pacific Coast News

This is one of those instances where you take your hand.. and firmly slap your forehead. Because how can someone be so oblivious to something so OFFENSIVE! Julianne Hough says she loves the show “Orange Is The New Black” on Netflix, and Crazy Eyes is an African American character on the show. So she decided to dress up as her. Which is fine… until she went too far to make it ‘authentic’ and applied blackface. She would have been FINE just wearing the jumpsuit and doing up her hair.

She later apologized saying:

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.

Lesson learned, no matter what… don’t wear blackface.
