Just like Julianne Hough, I too am a HUGE fan of the Netflix original series, Orange Is The New Black! I think that Julianne and all her friends dressing up as the cast of the hit show for a Halloween party was super clever and they all looked AWESOME! But Hough has been singled out and slammed for wearing a ‘black face’ costume, insinuating that this was an insensitive and ‘racist’ act.. I think that is absolutely ridiculous! She was dressing up as a character on the show called ‘Crazy Eyes’ who happens to be black. See the costume in question and tell us: What do YOU think?
I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. (cont) http://t.co/z5guo2Ogfi

I am honestly surprised that she would feel forced to make a public apology on Twitter, and publicly chastised for a freaking HALLOWEEN COSTUME! I personally think this has been blown WAY out of proportion, and was in no way whatsoever ‘racist.’ Nobody thought it was racist when the Wyan brothers dressed up as white women in “White Chicks“…I thought that was funny too! I honestly do not get why people and the media has made such a big deal about this. I say LIGHTEN UP PEOPLE….Halloween is a fun time to dress up as whatever you want, as long as it is not mean or purposely derogatory towards any group of people.
