    Despite the fact that taking videos and photos were prohibited during the hearing, Milano continued taking pictures and tweeting during the proceedings, prompting guards to confiscate her phone.

    Alyssa Milano, an American actress and #MeToo activist, drew attention on social media after she attended the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday.

    Milano attended the hearing as a guest of Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein, wearing a black pinstriped dress, which, as USA Today noted, “some deemed ‘disrespectful’ and ‘revealing.’”

    A number of Twitter users concurred with this assessment, blasting the actress for her choice of clothes and her conduct.

    ​Some however apparently took Milano’s side, arguing that she can wear whatever she wants.

    ​According to Newsweek, Milano also had her phone confiscated by a security guard as the actress continued to tweet and take pictures during the hearing despite being warned not to do so.

    On Thursday on Capitol Hill, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation that Brett Kavanaugh, a US Supreme Court nominee, attempted to rape her during a 1982 high school party.
