Julianne Hough has already apologized via Twitter for donning blackface at a Halloween party on Friday, Oct. 25, but the Safe Haven star hasn't earned everyone's forgiveness just yet. During the Monday, Oct. 28, episode of The Wendy Williams Show,host Wendy Williams weighed in on the costume controversy during the Hot Topics segment.
The outspoken TV personality noted that Julianne, 25, "caused a stir" over the weekend. "We don't normally think of her as stirring! Just dancing and smiling and stuff," Williams said. "She showed her ignorant side when she showed up to a Halloween party wearing blackface. Like, who does that?"
Juliannewho went as Crazy Eyes from Orange Is the New Blackhas said it was never her intention "to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way."

The old fascism lives on in a new generation.
Apologize all you like Julianne, it won’t work. You must be made an example of. I’m guessing Julianne is a liberal. If so, she voted for this kind of idiocy, so deal with it and enjoy it!!
Anyone that says “shove it” to political correctness is OK with me.
And in any case, that’ll be the norm following CW-II.
The girl didn’t don ‘blackface’.....she wore makeup that made her skin deeply tanned.
If they want ‘blackface’ to complain about, I could show it to them. Can anybody say “Al Jolson?”
“My little Mammie...”
Lord forbid we, white people, piss off somebody immaculately black. They might go off and have a Burger King Hissy Fit. [I can’t use the real word here because anything remotely connected with simian and black is verboten here for some reason]
don’t forget white men can’t jump by that titan of tolerance, spyke lee
Thou shalt not spoof the Noble Negro.
Her face isn’t even black, its brown and so what?
The eternally offended are so boring.
By all means let’s crucify some white celebrity for her costume that offended some Precious People. Meanwhile whites are being beaten, raped, robbed, killed, tortured and mutilated, and we’re not even allowed to talk about it.
Actually anybody in showbiz who would appear in blackface these days must have a fractional I.Q. A sure-fire career ender. Look how long it’s taken Michael Richards to claw his way back into a third-rate sitcom on TV Land after his N-word tirade.
Then again “fractional I.Q.” does describe most of Hollyweird.
Talk about your non scandal scandal, she and her friends as characters from a show.. one of those characters was black so she put on black face.
She wasn’t being a mammy or doing an Amos and Andy.
Anyone offended by this truly should seek counselling.
“Julianne Hough has already apologized via Twitter for donning blackface at a Halloween party”
Horror of horrors, one of the modern day’s unforgiveable offenses, along with use of the word “niggardly” among semi-literate people.
Meanwhile, continued beatdowns of white people by black mobs are not worthy of being reported.
Obviously, use of any illegal blackface that escapes government seizure and destruction would cause black/libs to wet themselves, so this process must be enjoined today!
You're just going to have to turn yourself over to somebody or some agency just for your thoughts.
Call NSA in case they haven't got information on your thoughts yet.
Take this thread and show NSA your post
---> That, I'm sure, is all the evidence they need.
Good morning, NSA. I'm just kidding around with my post.
Heh............really, just kidding, NSA.............
It was hardly blackface, and there were none of the other facial “features” (a la Jolson) that would indicate she was trying to be controversial. Wendy Williams is a blithering idiot.
Perhaps she fell asleep in a tanning booth?
Isn’t it possible she went as a coal miner? Just askin’.
Who is Wendy Williams?
Who is Julianne Hough?
If I commit to a severe regimen of medieval self-flagellation for my sins, to I still have to report myself to the government?
An amusing performance in an otherwise execrable motion picture.
“Who is Wendy Williams?”
You may know her by her 44 GGG boobs.
Who were those two male black comedians who had a movie where they played two white girls?
Oops, that’s them!
She has a talk show?
She gots white people hair. Is she mocking white people? Where be da Afro, sister?
Nice tat looks like the beginnings of mistletoe, can’t be sure, incomplete photo.
“I cant use the real word here”
Thats what I dont understand, they call each other the N word all the time, use it in song lyrics and wear it like a badge of honor but if you say it look out, youve commited a sin and will be held accountable foe the rest of your like. Ask Paula Dean.
She looked more like she was lampooning someone from “Jersey Shore.”
Not the same one who was lead singer for the Plasmatics?
So true, mrsmel. Let a white person say or do something “racially insensitive,” and it’s like the world has come to an end. Yet whites are supposed to turn the other cheek when they are viciously beaten, tortured and killed. Trayvon was treated as so very, very precious, yet whites are killed by blacks and it’s like they’re just disposable.
How long will we put up with this?!
Actually, while I agree with what you interpreted as the word I couldn’t use, I had not meant ‘that’ word (N-word)...
My clue in brackets was ‘simian’.... I tried the literal use once and it was banned before you could say zap....
Now THAT would be a story.
she need to get that skank tattoo removed....ain’t nothing sexy about it except it says “piece of meat”....
They understand the hypocrisy of it, it’s a power play.
It looks like the spread of a fungal growth.
Whoopi was cool with Ted Danson doing it.
She looks like a man.
Also known as TBB, or a “chimp-out”.

Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind (Dem.) said his "basketball player" costume, complete with brown face paint and Afro wig, "was not meant to in any way hurt anyone."
A New York state assemblyman apologized for wearing a "basketball player" costume that included brown face paint and an Afro wig.
At a news conference outside his Brooklyn home Monday, Dov Hikind, a Democrat who represents Brooklyn's District 48, pledged to be "a little more careful, a little more sensitive."
He added, "I repeat, it was not meant to in any way hurt anyone," according to the Associated Press. "And those that were? I'm sorry. That was not my intention."
Hikind hosted a Purim party Sunday at his home, Politicker reported. Costumes are a traditional part of Purim celebrations, and photos from the party show his wife dressed as the devil and his son with a black-and-white yin-yang symbol painted on his face.
Hikind's basketball player outfit included sunglasses and an orange jersey in addition to the Afro and face paint.
"I was trying to emulate, you know, maybe some of these basketball players," he told Politicker. "Someone gave me a uniform, someone gave me the hair of the actual, you know, sort of a black basketball player."
Asked if his costume might be seen as objectionable, Hikind said "everything goes" during Purim and "whatever anyone does, it's done with tremendous amounts of respect and with dignity."
He told Politicker, "I can't imagine anyone getting offended."
People got offended.
Assemblyman Karim Camara of the state Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic & Asian Legislative Caucus called Hikind's actions at the party "callous and repugnant," the AP reported.
"It brings back the memories of African-Americans being reduced to buffoonery just to gain access to the entertainment industry," said Camara, who is also a Brooklyn Democrat and a black leader in the New York state Legislature.
The powerful leader of the Democrat-led Assembly, Speaker Sheldon Silver, weighed in shortly after Hikind's news conference, calling Hikind's actions "inappropriate and offensive." No action against Hikind was announced.
Hikind initially told Politicker he had no regrets, except for the half hour he had to spend in the shower to get the brown paint off his face.
"I came out and I wiped my face and I still had stuff on my face. It's going to take me a while," he said. "But it's all worth it, I would do it again in a minute."
Not only fractional IQ, but bigoted beliefs. Stupid people aren’t bigots, just like intellectuals can be bigots and often are more so.
