Alyssa Milano has been around forever. Over the years on the pop culture radar, generations have grown up with the Charmed actress as she evolved from a child star to a TV mainstay and not to mention a social activist for a variety of causes and issues. The American actress appeared at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room on United States Capitol showing her “solidarity” for Dr Christine Blasey Ford who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers. However, Milano’s ‘Hollywood outfit’ and ‘tacky’ cleavage drew attention on social media. The #MeToo activist was shamed for her ‘revealing’ top and even recording the video of Testimony, breaking the rules of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The 45-year-old actress attended the hearing as a guest of Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein, where she was wearing a black pinstriped dress. Her choice of attire invited netizens for slamming her that some deemed as “disrespectful” and “revealing.”

But, some took Milano’s side, arguing that she can wear whatever she wants.
If you’re going to attack @Alyssa_Milano for her OUTFIT, you’re part of the problem. Women can wear whatever they want and your reaction is not their problem.

Watch video of Alyssa Milano at Dr Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh hearing.
Apart from her choice of outfit, the mother of two was also seen to continuously use her phone, taking pictures and tweeting during the hearing. The actress also posted a video of Kavanaugh’s emotional defence, captioning, “I will say this...if a woman were to yell, interrupt and cry while being questioned, people would call her unhinged or say she had a melt down.” Non-flash photography is allowed, and only accredited members of the press are permitted to record video in the hearing room. Despite being warned, later her phone was confiscated by a security guard.
