Julianne Hough is facing criticism over her role on a new reality show that judges real activists.
This is because, in 2013, the actress dressed up as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren from “Orange Is the New Black” for Halloween. Now she is speaking out about her regrets.
She said, “Wearing black face was a poor choice based on my own white privilege and my own white body bias that hurt people and is something I regret doing to this day.”
She also said that while not an activist, she’s “excited to be part of something that highlights, and is centered around sharing activists’ work on a larger platform.”
Do you think Julianne is a good fit for an activist show?
