Hi­lary Duff ‘truly sorry’ for Hal­loween cos­tume

Malta Independent - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tress and singer Hi­lary Duff and her boyfriend have apol­o­gised for their con­tro­ver­sial Hal­loween party cos­tumes.

The for­mer Lizzie McGuire star wore a pilgrim top and hat with hot pants and fish­net tights, while Ja­son Walsh was dressed as a Na­tive Amer­i­can.

Duff tweeted that she was “so sorry” about the choice of out­fit, which some found of­fen­sive.

Walsh said on In­sta­gram that he “meant no dis­re­spect” and apol­o­gised to any­one who was of­fended by what he wore.

“I only have ad­mi­ra­tion for the indige­nous peo­ple of Amer­ica,” wrote Walsh, who wore a head­dress and face paint as part of his cos­tume. “In hind­sight I would not have made that de­ci­sion.”

Duff added in her state­ment: “It was not prop­erly thought through and I am truly, from the bot­tom of my heart sorry.”

She cur­rently ap­pears in US com­edy se­ries Younger.
