Alyssa Milano Slammed for Comparing Red MAGA Hat with White Ku Klux Klan Hood
Alyssa Milano may want to keep her morning thoughts to herself after she received harsh criticism for a recent tweet.
The actress's Sunday morning tweet was heavily scorned upon. In it, she compared the MAGA hat to that of the white Ku Klux Klan headpiece.
The tweet follows the Friday incident which was marked by a video of a high school boy wearing the "Make America Great Again" hat as he stood smiling in front a Native American elder.
Milano wrote in her tweet:
"The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself. #FirstThoughtsWhenIWakeUp"
The direct comparison drew many to attack the activist about her career and her way of thinking in general.

Others addressed how the vilification of the teenage boy after the short clip emerged on Friday was unfair. According to them, too many had made false assumptions before certain details came to light.
Just checking to see the response to this silly tweet; so glad to see most people think its nonsense too. Adulting is difficult at times.— Karen (@KarenB12TX) January 22, 2019
One person suggested that Milano apologize. But the actress went on with her other tweets as she normally would. Milano is very vocal on twitter when it comes to her political views.

Back in November, she was among a number of persons who denounced President Donald Trump for blaming California's forest fires on mismanagement.
She quoted congressman Ted Lieu at the time:
"... guess who owns much of the forest land in CA? Your federal agencies. CA only owns 2%. Guess who cut funding to forest management in the budget? YOU DID."

Later that month, Milano also joined Kathy Griffin and Rosie O'Donnell in blasting Trump for using tear gas at migrants along the border.
The wind carried the gas toward women and children who were not involved in an illegal entry happening nearby. O'Donnell called the incident "pure horror."

In an expletive-ridden tweet, Milano also expressed her shock:
"You tear-gassed women and children, [expletive]! And on Thanksgiving weekend, you piece of [expletive], [expletive], [expletive], evil-creature-person!!"
At the time, others supported Milano's outrage. This time, however, her supporters were lacking as she made what most saw as an unfounded comparison.
