Orange is the new Black, but that doesn't mean it's okay for anyone to wear blackface; a lesson actress Julianne Hough had to learn the hard way.

The 25-year-old dressed as the character Crazy Eyes from the hit Netflix show and to get her costume just right, she darkened the skin on her face and neck.

Hough received a lot of criticism on social media for donning blackface and apologized on Twitter, saying it was never her intention to be disrespectful.
