It seems like every Halloween there’s a celebrity apologizing for wearing a costume deemed offensive – this year, it’s Hilary Duff.

Duff and her boyfriend, fitness trainer Jason Walsh, received heavy backlash over the weekend for dressing up as a pilgrim and a Native American.

Duff  later apologized on Twitter, writing, “I am SO sorry to people I offended with my costume,” she wrote. “It was not properly thought through and I am truly, from the bottom of my [heart] sorry.”

Walsh also issued an apology, posting a Snapchat screenshot on his Instagram account, which read, “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.”
