Julianne Hough has apologized for her blackface costume a while back.

Hough is a judge on CBS' new show "The activist."

"The Activist" follows six activists from around the world come together "to bring meaningful change to one of three urgent universal causes: health, education and the environment.

"The activists will compete in missions, media stunts, digital campaigns and community events aimed at garnering the attention of the world's most powerful decision-makers, demanding action now."

But people want her fired as she once dressed up as Orange Is The New Black character, Crazy Eyes with full blackface on Halloween in 2013.

"Thank you for using your voices, calling me in, your accountability, and your candor. I am deeply listening with an open heart and mind," she wrote.

"Wearing blackface was a poor choice based on my own white privilege and my own white body bias that hurt people and is something I regret doing to this day," Hough wrote. "However, the regret that I live with pales in comparison to the lived experiences of so many. My commitment has been to reflect and act differently."
