Actress-dancer Julianne Hugh is regretting her decision to paint her face black this Halloween to play Crazy Eyes from the show ‘Orange is the New Black’.

The ‘Dancing With the Stars’ winner attended the Casamigos

Tequila Halloween party in Hollywood with friends while dressed up as the African-American inmate Crazy Eyes,portrayed by Uzo Aduba on the show,reported Us magazine.

But her tribute to the character did not go well with many and Hough was quick to seek an apology on Twitter.

“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,” she said.
