Alyssa Milan Goes One Step Too Far and Gets It From Both Sides of the Aisle
Alyssa Milano hopped on Twitter to wish everyone a Happy National Women’s Day. But she didn’t stop there, she decided to add a twist by implying that she was trans.
This, of course, garnered a response, so one of her followers asked her what she meant and if she was now transgender.
Milano had the following response.
“I’m trans. I’m a person of color. I’m an immigrant. I’m a lesbian. I’m a gay man. I’m the disabled.
I’m everything. And so are you, Kirk.
Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know or understand. No one wants to hurt you. We are all just looking for our happily ever after.”
People on the right called her “delusional” and explained that it doesn’t work that way.
Meanwhile, people on the left were upset as they felt she was using trans and minorities to push her brand.
“This is not how to be an ally. You are neither of these identities so have no idea on the struggles faced by these marginalized groups. If you want to support these groups say I stand with, not I am.”
“What the ever living f*ck is this able-bodied straight rich white b**** talking about?”
“Empathy is not about appropriating the experiences of others. You are a well-to-do white woman who is none of the things you are “empathizing” with. That matters.
Your apology should be for reproducing racial hierarchies and overstepping in the name of “allyship.”
After the backlash, Milano issued this semi-apology.
“I’m glad this tweet invoked conversation. I’m so sorry it offended some. I see you and hear you. But just a reminder, empathy is not a bad thing. Nuance is important and literal interpretation is not always intended. And I can identify with and not identify as. Both are powerful.”
Her follower were equally not happy with this response as it was as one person described it “I’m sorry YOU got offended. I’m right tho.”
Arbor Day is coming up so I’m sure Milano will be transforming into a tree for the occasion.
