You know it's Halloween season, when the poor decisions begin.
Halloween weekend just passed and with it – the offensive, stereotypical costumes. There are a few every year and celebrities aren’t exempt from the rule. Case in point – former Dancing with the Stars staple Julianne Hough, who, apparently having been absent from the world for the past few decades, decided it would be ok to wear blackface as part of her costume. It wasn’t, of course, but in all fairness, Hough’s costume seems to be more a product of ignorance, rather than outright racial hate.
Halloween is the season for bad judgement, but this is going overboard.
See, everyone (well, most people) like to dress up as their favorite characters, be it from books, movies or TV, especially when Halloween rolls around. In Hough’s case, the character was Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren from Orange Is the New Black, played by actress Uzo Aduba. In our humble opinion, the orange jumpsuit and Crazy Eyes name tag should have made the costume recognizable enough, but Hough apparently decided to go that extra mile, crossing boldly into racially offensive territory. Aduba and her reps chose to wisely steer clear of the whole debacle, but plenty of twitter users were quick to jump on Hough’s case. So much so, that she was forced to apologize the very next morning after the pictures surfaced. And to her critics’ delight, it wasn’t the kind of non-apology we’re used to.
