BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Actress Julianne Hough stepped out in a controversial Halloween costume this past weekend.
Hough wore an orange jumpsuit and dark face makeup when she dressed up as the African-American character “Crazy Eyes” from the popular Netflix show, “Orange is the New Black.”
The “blackface” costume sparked outrage on social media sites after the photos went viral.
It's not hard. White people: Do not wear blackface. Life will still be okay if you don't ever, ever, ever, wear blackface. OKAY? GREAT.— Martha Plimpton (@MarthaPlimpton) October 26, 2013
Hough later apologized for her costume choice.
I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. (cont) http://t.co/z5guo2Ogfi— Julianne Hough (@juliannehough) October 26, 2013
