Why The Hate On Julianne Hough?

I really don’t get why people got so outraged over Julianne Hough’s costume for Halloween over the weekend? Halloween is about becoming something that your not the other 364 days of the year. It’s a freedom, and if there were no ill-intentions behind the costume, then there really shouldn’t be a problem. In case you’ve been under a rock, Julianne Hough dressed as her favourite character on the hit Netflix show Orange Is The New Black. The character she went as is named “Crazy Eyes” and is African American. Julianne tried to make her skin darker and did what is called “blackface”. Blackface is when a white person wears make-up to look like a black person.

It doesn’t help that Julianne’s costume was taking way out of context. What a lot of places aren’t telling you is Julianne’s friends were also dressed like characters from the show. This wasn’t some race thing where she was just being a “black person is jail”, she was dressed the part for her favourite character. It’s really sad that everyone has over reacted.

Do you think Julianne Hough was in the wrong for choosing this as her Halloween costume, or do you think people are making more out of this than there really is? Let me know in the comment section.

  1. I don’t think people are over reacting. She knows the history the history of blackface and how hurtful it is and yet she chose to do it anyway. So now she has to deal with the consequences I cosplay a lot and I’ve never once changed my skin to look like another race because I knew it’ll be offensive

  2. I can’t believe that I am just now seeing this. I just wrote in to Dancing With the Stars because I will no longer watch as long as she is a judge.
    yes she is dead wrong for this poor move, lack of judgement, and lack of concern for anyone other than herself, all to be someone else on Halloween
