Hough said that 'the greatest thing you can do is to just learn and to grow and to be open to different perspectives.'

Hough told the publication that she spoke with multiple activists about the situation, and that many showed 'their deepest kindness by sharing and opening up' amid the time.

'I reached out to so many people who offered their knowledge and their perspective in a way that was inviting and welcoming versus being judgmental,' she said.

She said the response she received 'was kindness at its finest and it really showed that humans really do want to unify and help each other and that touched my heart.'
