Wendy Williams on Julianne Hough in Blackface: Mormonism is No Excuse!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Wendy Williams is joining the Julianne Hough hate parade.

The former Dancing with the Stars professional has come under fire for donning blackface as part of her Halloween costume over the weekend.

And, despite Hough's apology, Martha Plimpton has called out Julianne out as a moron and Williams took to the air yesterday to blast the beauty and ignorant and unintelligent.

"Who does that?" Williams asked her talk show audience while blasting Hough. "Who walks out of the house in blackface? Like, wow, Julianne...

"You have to figure this: This was, like, an intentional move. This was not something that happened all of a sudden and she was like, ‘Oh, is this racist?' You put thought into your Halloween costume... You don't just show up in blackface. Which means she's not just less than smart off the cuff - she's less than smart even when she thinks about it."

Williams - who also recently slammed Kris Jenner as a greedy viper - then wondered when Hough's upbringing and/or religion played a role in her outfit choice.

Not that it would have been a valid excuse, anyway.

"She grew up Mormon," Williams said. "She only thought that there was one kind of alcohol until I guess she arrived to Hollyweird and discovered you can drink something different every minute of the day. Does she get a pass if she grew up out there? Because I'm thinking there's books and there's internet and TV…the world is your oyster."

Overall, Hough "should know better," the talk show host concluded.

Do you agree? What did you think of Hough's Orange is the New Black costume?

What a joke. We will never get past racism until stuff like this is no big deal. Slavery ended in the 1800's. It's been nearly 50 years since the Civil Right Movement. The next step is for us all to get along, and be ok with our differences and be able to talk to one another without being hyper sensitive. Hough was simply paying homage to a character and actress she admired, who happened to be black. I realize the historical implications, but give me a break, at some point we have to move on and celebrate our differences. Only then will this stupid racial polarization end.

Ridiculous, but not surprising. Look at the source.
Julianne did nothing wrong. Not even a little, and she should've never apologized.

"This day and age"??? I thought we all wanted to be equal and were working towards ending the actual day and age when race was an issue then they go and get mad because someone looks too tan?? And it's a character from a tv show .. I'm dressing as a female version of a male tv character.. does that mean I hate guys? Uh definitely not.
