Julianne Hough says she's sorry for wearing blackface as part of her Halloween costume, insisting she had no idea she was being offensive.
Hough wore the make-up, long considered racist in the African-American community, in order to look like the character Crazy Eyes from the Netflix series Orange is the New Black. When photos leaked, she apologized on Twitter.
She tweeted “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.”
