For Millennials. By Millennials.
Alyssa Milano is one of Joe Biden’s most vocal supporters. In fact, she’s been supporting him even when Bernie was in the race. However, she was called out for discrediting Tara Reade’s claims of sexual assault on Joe Biden. But now, she has changed her stance on the matter and wants Reade to be heard!
Alyssa Milano now wants Tara Reade to be heard!
The actress-turned-activist recently went on Twitter in support of Tara Reade. She said:
I’m aware of the new developments in Tara Reade’s accusation against Joe Biden. I want Tara, like every other survivor, to have the space to be heard and seen without being used as fodder. I hear and see you, Tara.

Alyssa Milano tweeted this after one of Reade’s former neighbors came out in support of her. In an interview with Business Insider, her former neighbor Lynda LaCasse said:
I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him. And he kind of put her up against a wall. And he put his hand up her skirt and he put his fingers inside her. She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn’t feel there was anything she could do.
Moreover, LaCasse wasn’t the only one who came forward. Three other people have come out supporting Reade’s claims, including her brother, colleague, and friend. After LaCasse came forward for Tara Reade, it forced Milano to change her stance on the issue. Because previously, she was in full support for Biden’s campaign for the White House.
Milano takes a u-turn on her previous stance, and Twitter doesn’t forget
Previously, she wasn’t as supportive of Tara Reade’s allegations. In fact, in an interview with Andy Cohen, she said:
I just don’t feel comfortable throwing away a decent man that I’ve known for 15 years in this time of complete chaos without there being a thorough investigation and I’m sure that the mainstream media would be jumping all over this… if they found more evidence through their investigation. So I’m just sort of staying quiet about it.
And many of the replies underneath her tweet didn’t forget this fact. In fact, Alyssa Milano actively said that it was a smear campaign against Biden. This is odd because as an activist she advocated for support for women who came forward with their #MeToo stories. However, that only lasted as long as it was convenient for her. She actively spoke against Tara Reade and her sexual assault allegations, and Twitter did not forget. Here are some of the replies that reminded her of this:
And these are just some of the scathing replies Alyssa Milano got under her tweet. But, this isn’t the only backlash she has received recently.
She was previously slammed by Rose McGowan
Rose McGowan previously called her a “fraud” on Twitter. This happened after she announced her complete support for Joe Biden, despite the sexual assault allegations. McGowan tweeted:
You are a fraud. This is about holding the media accountable. You go after Trump & Kavanaugh saying Believe Victims, you are a lie. You have always been a lie. The corrupt DNC is in on the smear job of Tara Reade, so are you. SHAME.
It is evident that Milano didn’t stay true to her word. Despite campaigning in favor of supporting accusers, she couldn’t do it when it was really challenging for her. And social media doesn’t forget anything, ever.
