Alyssa Milano claps back at critics accusing her of blackface

The below picture is me parodying Jersey Shore and Snookie's tan'.

This is the second time that the actress turned political activist has addressed the video of herself in dark brown makeup. Are they trying to hurt Trump's most vocal critics?

The Charmed star was then flooded with screenshots of her as Snooki. The misinformation campaign has begun. Last month, Jimmy Fallon also apologized after coming under fire on social media due to a recently resurfaced Saturday Night Live clip in which the late-night host is seen performing in blackface.

Milano seemed to make a veiled reference to the attack in a Monday tweet, in which she wrote, 'Cancel culture is being weaponized by the right/Putin'. "Truth still matters." But in the comments, users kept posting the still photo from her amusing or Die sketch and claiming that Alyssa was in Black or Brownface. "So go f-k yourselves with your smear campaign". "Here is the link to full video", the 47-year-old tweeted on June 30. She warned her followers on Twitter that "right-wing trolls" were accusing her of appearing in blackface and offered the video as a way to provide more context to the incident.

The Jersey Shore actress is known in part for her distinctive tan. Milano posted a follow-up message on Tuesday, writing that the replies to her tweet "are proving my point".

While Milano states that she didn't wear blackface, other celebrities have recently been forced to apologize for their use of it in the past.
