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.
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

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