Not a good look, Julianne Hough. The former “Dancing with the Stars” pro certainly didn’t get our vote when she donned blackface for Halloween. The 25-year-old was portraying “Orange is the New Black” character Crazy Eyes, played by actress Uzo Aduba. After the costume sparked an uproar online, Hough apologized. “I am a huge fan of the show ‘Orange is the New Black,’ actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created,” Hough tweeted. “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.”
