Shortly after actress Hilary Duff and her boyfriend, Jason Walsh, dressed as a pilgrim and a Native American chief at a halloween party in Beverly Hills on Friday, October 28, the couple apologized on social media.
Duff dressed as a pilgrim with short-shorts; Walsh wore a full, faux Native headdress buckskin outfit and face-paint.
"I am so sorry to people I offended with my costume," Duff wrote Sunday on Twitter. "It was not properly thought through, and I am truly from the bottom of my [heart emoji] sorry."
Duff’s boyfriend also posted an apology on Instagram, stating, "I meant no disrespect. I only have admiration for the indigenous people of America. In hindsight I would not have made that decision. I apologize to anyone I may have offended."

Some people came to Duff’s defense on Twitter, while others recognized the gaff and accepted her apology.
YouTuber Mark Dice remarked in all caps: “DON'T BE SORRY. SCREW THESE PSYCHOTIC SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS WHO HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYBODY, EVEN THEMSELVES!”
