It seems that every Halloween at least one celebrity courts controversy by wearing a potentially offensive costume. This year, that celeb was country singer Jason Aldean, who apparently hadn't heard that wearing "blackface" makeup is, to put it gently, frowned upon.
Aldean isn't the first celebrity whose taken heat for wearing blackface makeup on Halloween. In 2013, Dancing With the Stars judge Julianne Hough was criticized when she darkened her skin with makeup to dress up as Uzo Aduba's Orange Is the New Black character Crazy Eyes.
