Julianne Hough Apologizes For Blackface Halloween Costume

(Hollywood, CA) -- Former "Dancing With The Stars" pro Julianne Hough is apologizing for a Halloween costume that isn't going over well with Internet critics. Hough was blasted online for darkening her face and sporting knotted hair bumps to look like Uzo Aduba's character Crazy Eyes from the Netflix prison series "Orange Is The New Black." The sometime country singer and actress showed up at the Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party in Hollywood Friday night with a group of friends dressed like the cast of the show.

Hough later tweeted her apologies saying she realized her costume hurt and offended people. She said it was not her intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in anyway.
