Blackface originated from the minstrel shows of the early 19th century, when white actors would rub greasepaint, shoe polish, and burnt cork on their faces to perform racist caricatures of free and enslaved black people.

In 2013, Julianne Hough received backlash after she donned blackface for her costume as Crazy Eyes (played by Uzo Aduba) from Netflix's original TV series Orange is the New Black.
