Julianne Hough Wears Blackface for Halloween

Julianne Hough as Suzanne UPDATE: Julianne has since apologized on Twitter.

It's no surprise that Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black is indeed so popular of a character that folks want to dress up like her for Halloween. What is surprising is that dancer-turned-actress Julianne Hough found it acceptable to dress up in blackface.

Although it's good to see that fans are identifying with a female character of color, Hough could have done without the makeup, considering the fact that she was already wearing her hair in the character's recognizable quasi-spiked 'do and had Warren's ID tag easily noticeable on her chest.

Hough was spotted in the "Crazy Eyes" getup at a Halloween Party she attended with friends last night - all of whom were also dressed like Orange Is the New Black characters.

The Dancing with the Stars winner has yet to address any of the controversy and Twitter uproar regarding her Halloween costume.
