Hi­lary Duff ‘so sorry’ for Hal­loween cos­tumes

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

LOS AN­GE­LES >> Hi­lary Duff is apol­o­giz­ing for dress­ing up as a pil­grim for a Hal­loween party while her boyfriend put on a head­dress and face paint to go as an Amer­i­can In­dian.

Duff and boyfriend Ja­son Walsh donned the Thanks­giv­ing-themed cos­tumes for a bash in Bev­erly Hills on Thurs­day. Duff got a swift so­cial me­dia back­lash af­ter pic­tures from the party were posted on­line. Many thought the cos­tumes were racially in­sen­si­tive.

The ac­tress re­sponded on Twit­ter Sun­day , writ­ing that she was “SO sorry” to peo­ple she of­fended with the cos­tume. She says it wasn’t “prop­erly thought through.”

Walsh is­sued his own apol­ogy via In­sta­gram , say­ing he “meant no dis­re­spect” and wouldn’t have made the same de­ci­sion to wear the cos­tume in hind­sight.
