Alyssa Milano embroiled in blackface scandal—damning video comes back to haunt her

Hollywood actress-turned-radical liberal activist Alyssa Milano has found herself in hot water after a video surfaced, one which appears to show her wearing some form of blackface. Milano has since fired back to defend herself, saying that she was not wearing blackface at all.

“I would say once I was 16, 17, I started to think, ‘Why didn’t my birth parents want me? What do they look like? Do I have any brothers and sisters?’ Because I grew up an only child, I always wanted a brother or sister to grow up with,” Polizzi said when describing her early years, according to Page Six.
