    Actress Alyssa Milano has long been an activist, working with various charities and helping popularise the #MeToo movement.

    Actress, activist, producer, and former singer Alyssa Milano has been called out for her emotional tweet claiming she doesn't recognise America anymore.

    Milano wrote: “I don’t recognise my country anymore,” above the link to a story on a Ku Klux Klan rally planned for the weekend in Dayton, Ohio.

    ​Other Twitter users were swift to point out to Milano that racism in America is nothing new.

    Milano returned to her original tweet Friday morning, as she shared that she had conferred with activist and author Brittany Packnett, who she thanked for “calling in instead of calling out”.

    The actress admitted that she’s lived a life that’s not only privileged but “bizarrely sheltered,” as she spent much of her childhood on “a set of total inclusion”.

    She said she was “horrified” and “angry”.

    Alyssa Milano began her career as a child star, breaking out as Samantha on Who’s the Boss?, and subsequently landing her own spin-off, Living Dolls. 

    The actress went on to appear in numerous TV films and B-movies before landing a major role in the WB drama Melrose Place, which earned her a lead on the network’s new series, Charmed, which ran from 1998-2006.

    Although her film career never really took off, Milano has continued to act on TV ever since.
