Julianne Hough isn’t the brightest lightbulb in the closet as the actress dressed up in blackface to portray Crazy Eyes from the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black” for a Halloween party she attended Friday night.
As we all know, it’s that time of the year again. It’s time for people of all races, shapes and sizes to make incredibly poor Halloween costume choices.
Julianne Hough kicked off the terrible costume idea competition when she put dark makeup all over her face and tied her hair in those wacky knots that Crazy Eyes is known for.
As soon as the picture hit the Web, social media exploded with disapproval of the blackface costume.
Hough didn’t immediately respond, but eventually she took to her own Twitter to apologize for offending anyone with the costume.
“I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New Black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created,” Hough tweeted. “It certainly was never my intention top be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.”
At this point it’s really just shocking that celebrities don’t know any better.
Blackface makeup has always put people in hot water. Dunkin’ Donuts realized that even blackface make up for an ad campaign just wasn’t going to go unchallenged.
As if the blackface wasn’t enough, the outfit didn’t even match the character she was trying to portray.
While the 25-year-old actress slipped into an orange prison jail suit with a long-sleeved gray shirt underneath, Crazy Eyes wears a baggy khaki prison jail suit which looks absolutely nothing like Hough’s.
Not to mention her fake bantu knots look more like Miley Cyrus buns than anything else.
Halloween isn’t even here yet, but it seems like Hough has already taken the crown for 2013 Worst Celebrity Halloween Costume.
