Ireland Baldwin Dons Native American Halloween Costume, Lashes Out at "Pathetic" Critics

Ireland Baldwin can feel your pain, Julianne Hough.

With that blonde dancer still taking heat over her blackface-based Halloween costume, Alec Baldwin's daughter is now coming under fire for her holiday attire: she's dressed like a Native American.

Many responded to the 18-year old's Tweeted headdress and war paint in a negative fashion last night... but have you met Ireland Baldwin? She is not one to back down from a fight.

Ireland defended the outfit by saying she isn't mocking Native Americans in general; she's dressed as a specific character from a specific movie, posting a photo of the chief from Peter Pan online and writing:

"This is who I was being for Halloween at Disneyland. You all are pathetic."

She also noted that her parents are of Cherokee heritage and she’s "well aware of what many tribes encountered in the past.”

As for the "pathetic morons" that "bring my family and other matters into the discussion?" She made it very clear: “You are all sad excuses for human beings.”

In the end, though, Baldwin sort of came around, Tweeting:

"I apologize if my Halloween costume offended you or your culture PERSONALLY. However, I don't apologize to a majority of you who thought it was necessary to return the favor with a lot of hateful mentions."

This is definitely a sore subject at the moment, with debate heating up over whether or not the Washington Redskins should change their name.

Do you find Ireland's Halloween costume to be offensive?
