We’re used to seeing celebrities cross the line of appropriateness on Halloween but it’s usually nothing more than an overly skimpy costume. In Julianne Hough’s case, good sense was thrown out the window when she decided to go as “Orange Is the New Black” character Crazy Eyes.
Hough, 25, donned blackface for her costume yesterday, which she completed with an orange jumpsuit and Crazy Eyes’ signature bantu knots. The actress attended the Casamigos Tequila Halloween party in Hollywood with friends, who appear to have all gone as the cast of the hit Netflix series. No one in the group, however, seems to have given Hough a heads up about her offensive getup.
UPDATE 3:45 p.m.: Hough tweeted an apology, writing:
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.
