Julianne Hough dresses in blackface for Halloween

Julianne Hough dresses up as Crazy Eyes from 'Orange is the New Black' as she attends the Casamigos Tequila halloween party in Hollywood

Julianne Hough channels actress Uzo Aduba’s character on Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black,” Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren. She dresses as her character for a Halloween party, wearing an orange prison-issue smock, with a gray long sleeve shirt underneath and a ID with a photo and Crazy Eyes’ name on it. The kicker is she darkened her blonde hair and tied it up in Zulu-like knots and applied dark brown makeup.

She was flanked by fake fellow inmates in the same outfit and a fake warden wielding a baton. She tweeted.

Once she became aware of the social media backlash, like being called “racist,” she has since apologized.
