Halloween is a time to let your hair down and adopt another personality for a night — or perhaps reveal a side of yourself you don’t always feel comfortable letting loose. When celebrities join the festivities, the results are usually entertaining. This Halloween proves no different, evidenced by the many Instagram and Twitter pics of stars getting spooky.

And now her fans are giving her hell for sharing the upsetting photo.
