    The 26-year-old Hough tweeted:

    “I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. 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.”

    Do you think Halloween should be an exception to wear blackface?
