Julianne Hough apologized after wearing blackface to a Beverly Hills Halloween party on Friday.
Hough was dressed as “Crazy Eyes,” a character played by actress Uzo Aduba. Her costume included an orange prison jumpsuit, a “Crazy Eyes” name tag, a knotted hair style and a full face of dark make up.
The former Dancing with the Stars pro faced a storm of criticism after pictures surfaced of her controversial costume. Hough issued an apology the following day.
“I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New Black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created,” Hough said on Twitter. “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.”
Uzo Aduba has yet to comment on Hough’s costume choice or her apology.
