Oopsies! That's clearly what Julianne Hough is thinking right now as she got some serious backlash for her Halloween costume that included totally awkward and inappropriate blackface. While most people are fairly aware of how offensive it is, Julianne dressed up this weekend in blackface as she portrayed the character Crazy Eyes from Orange Is The New Black. But after the public reacted, Julianne took to Twitter to explain her costume choice. She wrote: "I am a huge fan of the show. 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."
