Alyssa Milano Finally Shows Support For Biden Accuser Tara Reade After Widespread Backlash

Actress and “#MeToo” originator Alyssa Milano finally gave in to widespread backlash over her lack of support for Tara Reade, the woman who alleges that former Vice President Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993.

Milano voiced her support for Reade via Twitter early Tuesday morning after a Fox News story was published in which Reade tore into Milano seemingly ignoring her plight, saying Milano “knows nothing” about Reade’s story.

Reade’s Claims Have Gained More Attention Since New Evidence Emerged

Reade claims presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden sexually assaulted her 27 years ago when she served as his Senate staffer.

Milano’s tweet comes just after Reade’s former neighbor, 60-year-old Lynda LaCasse, publicly said that Reade’s allegations against Biden were true, recalling information from the time of the alleged assault.

Both reports created a harsh backlash on Twitter and other social media as commenters demanded that Milano acknowledge the new evidence and show some support for Reade.

Milano Finally Acknowledges Reade: ‘I hear and see you, Tara. #MeToo’

In the wake of this backlash, Milano tweeted: “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. #MeToo”

 

Prior to this tweet showing support for Reade, Milano had defended Biden against his accuser’s allegations and said that the #MeToo movement she created was about giving sexual assault victims a voice – but she insisted that also did not mean robbing men of their due process rights.

Many critics compared Milano’s approach to Reade to the actress’s handling of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her, the alleged details of which played out during his confirmation hearing.

Reade: ‘I think we need to compare how she responded to Brett Kavanaugh’

Reade told Fox News that Milano “really doesn’t know anything about what happened to me,” and said it is “odd” Milano would say what she said without even speaking to Reade first.

“I think we need to compare how she responded to Brett Kavanaugh … quite different than the talking points she [used] regarding Joe Biden,” Reade said to Fox News. “She never reached out to me. I don’t really want to amplify her voice because I feel like she hijacked my narrative for a while and framed it about herself … she knows nothing about it.”

Reade claims that in 1993 Biden kissed her, touched her, and penetrated her with his fingers without her consent while he was a U.S. senator serving Delaware.

Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign insists that it “absolutely did not happen.”

  • WHAT???? What 13 year old are you talking about? Twenty sexual assault cases? PROVIDE PROOF!!!! Oh thats right you have NONE. You are spreading lies and a huge part of the problem in this country. Worst thing other than a thief is a LIAR and you are one.

  • Bringing this up will also be bad news for Trump because the media will now have to talk about his more than 20 sexual assault cases in the courts including a rape of a 13 year old.
