Yesterday, we reported that Alyssa Milano had found herself embroiled in a blackface scandal after a video surfaced of her wearing darkened facial makeup to portray Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi from “Jersey Shore.” Now, Milano is firing back with the ridiculous claim that conservatives are the ones behind cancel culture, despite the fact that leftists have been the people “cancelling” anyone who disagrees with them for years.
“Cancel culture is being weaponized by the right/Putin. Take notice of who they are targeting & what is trending. Are they trying to hurt Trump’s most vocal critics? Yup. The misinformation campaign has begun. Be vigilant in what you post on social media. Truth still matters,” tweeted Milano, who has been one of the leaders of leftist “cancel culture” ever since it began.

Countless conservatives have been “cancelled” by the Left since President Donald Trump was elected in 2016, including Roseanne Barr, Megyn Kelly, Diamond & Silk, Google engineer James Damore, and many more. As of late, deranged liberals have resorted to cancelling historical figures like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ulysses S. Grant, and even Abraham Lincoln, demanding that statues of them be removed.
Milano is only trying to blame “cancel culture” on conservatives after she herself became a target of it when video surfaced of her wearing what clearly looks to be blackface. Had a conservative white actress been caught wearing the makeup that Milano is in the image below, we all know she would have been cancelled a long time ago.
Wow, check out this racist Republican in blackface…

Things only got worse for Milano when photos resurfaced of her wearing cornrows, which resulted in her being accused of appropriating black culture.
Is this cultural appropriation? https://t.co/x1JN3nIm1J

Milano is learning the hard way about what the downside is of the cancel culture that she championed for so long. “Cancelling” people may seem like tons of fun, but that all changes when you become a target of the mob. Thinking that cancel culture will never actually come for you takes a special level of narcissism that only someone who has spent decades in Hollywood, as Milano has, could have.
Here’s hoping that Milano really is “cancelled” for these infractions, and that we never have to hear her ignorant opinions again.
