Actress Julianne Hough celebrated Halloween in a costume many are calling distasteful. The Safe Haven star attended a Beverly Hills bash as the African American character known as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren  from the Netflix series Orange is the new Black. 

She apologized on Sat, Oct 26 for offending some saying,

“I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.”

In addition to the dark makeup, the Safe Haven star wore prison orange with a longsleeve gray T-shirt over her hands. She darkened her eyebrows and blond hair, which was styled in knots  just like the fictional prisoner. She completed the look with an ID tag on her chest featuring the TV character, portrayed by Uzo Aduba.

This is the look Hough was going for (unsuccessfully.)

Hough was joined by a group of friends dressed as inmates, wearing matching orange outfits but no dark makeup. A male friend dressed as a prison warden and held a baton.

Its not exactly blackface, but not so successfully pulled off. We wonder if anyone even knew who she was supposed to be?
