Alyssa Milano is facing backlash for a comment that she left while watching Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s heart-wrenching Instagram Live about what she experienced during the insurrection.
The 31-year-old congresswoman spoke to over 150,000 viewers on Monday night (February 1) about everything that went down during the Capitol riots on January 6.
AOC revealed that she thought she was going to die when her office was invaded and she had to hide in the bathroom. She was with Rep. Katie Porter during these moments and Alyssa made a joke about them being together.
At a moment when other viewers were sending their sympathy to AOC, Alyssa jokingly said, “At any point did Katie pull out her white board?”
If you didn’t know, Rep. Porter is well known for using a white board to explain various policies while speaking on the hill.
People are calling on Alyssa to apologize because they feel she was being insensitive during a heart-wrenching moment for AOC. It’s important to note that this wasn’t the only comment she left. At one point she expressed her outrage for the situation and said, “I’m feeling rage. Anyone else feeling rage? This is devastating. How did they get in?! So close to her?! It should have never happened.”
