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

White people, just stop it.

Year after year, white people never seem to realize blackface is never a good idea.  Julianne Hough clearly didn’t think it through when she decided to go as “Orange Is the New Black” character Crazy Eyes.

Hough, 25, wore blackface for her costume and included  an orange jumpsuit and Crazy Eyes’ signature bantu knots. The actress was part of an ensemble costume with friends who appeared to have all gone as the cast from “Orange Is The New Black”.  Apparently no one thought twice to say, “Hey Hough, yeah, that black face ain’t cool”. Clearly she could have gotten her point across with just the bantu knots alone. 

After Hough got word of the backlash, came the apology via her Twitter account:

    I normally don’t promote violent behavior but, like a lot of things in life there are exceptions to some rules and this is one. If you are caught in black face you need your ass kicked, use Halloween as an excuse get your ass kicked twice. Julliane could have just worn the hair and costume and most people would get what she was trying to do. Like nobody told Prince Harry it was a bad idea to wear the Hitler costume but, all hell broke loose when he did it though believe that. This 2013 your not excused anymore from “I didn’t mean to offend”/claim ignorance that you had no clue the reference your making has a negative connotation. Two things that bother me about Halloween people using it as an excuse to be racist and claim who its just dress up, and these women dressing like tramps its become a time show case your racism and a lot of women turning it into Tramp Day, no imagination just throw on a see through body stocking or some crap, and bunny ears and look how cute I am.

    Even though I can’t stand blackface, I think maybe this actress was truly just too damn stupid to know any better.

    She’s a Mormon from Utah, and I read that her father is some high fallutin’ Republican official. In other words, she’s just a corn-fed, inbred idiot.

    Yeah. I’m judging. Double-standard? Maybe, but I don’t care.

    I find the white trash dressing as Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman much more egregious. They know what they’re doing. Jackasses.

    Poppycock
    “If anyone is ignorant about racism its black people”. We don’t have the ability to stop them from practicing racism (white supremacy). I want them to continue to come out and show their true intent. Any time we make a huge deal about these type of incidents they become more refined.

    You lost me at “actress”. She is merely a dancer with cranal function challenges. Thank you.

    Anyone who thinks dressing up for Halloween as an actress you admire is racist but who also thinks the movie “White Chicks” is not is themselves racist and a hypocrite.
