Actress and "Dancing with the Stars" alumni Julianne Hough is apologizing for a controversial Halloween costume. Hough went to a Beverly Hills party last week in blackface. According to E! News, she was going as the character "Crazy Eyes" from the Netflix show "Orange is the New Black".

The day after the party, Hough 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."Hough Costume Backlash
