Even a bronzed face is bad

Looks like no more than fake tan above

Julianne Hough's Halloween costume is stirring up quite the controversy, and rubbing people the wrong way. The Safe Haven actress showed up to a Halloween party in Beverly Hills, Calif., dressed in blackface on Friday, Oct. 25.

Hough went all out for her costume, wearing orange prison attire, her hair in a knotted 'do and even had an I.D. with the name "Crazy Eyes" on it. The former Dancing With the Stars professional dancer looked to be with a group of six female friends dressed up as several of the other fictional inmates as well.

Hearing of the backlash, Hough quickly took to Twitter to respond the following day. "I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created," she wrote on Saturday, Oct. 26. "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."

just being white would have offended people. Let the offended by offended, ignore them and live how you want to.
