Actress Alyssa Milano apologized after she gave a problematic response to a question from a fan.

Last Friday, in commemoration of International Women's Day, the Charmed star celebrated her "transgender sisters."



A simple “no” would have sufficed, but Milano chose to go the head a*s route and offend several marginalized groups in the process, according to Out magazine.

“I’m trans. I’m a person of color. I’m an immigrant. I’m a lesbian. I’m a gay man. I’m the disabled. I’m everything,” she responded. “And so are you, Kirk. Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know or understand. No one wants to hurt you. We are all just looking for our happily ever after.”

Twitter got her together real quick.

Milano responded with what she must believe serves as an apology.

"I’m glad this tweet invoked conversation,” she wrote. “I’m so sorry it offended some. I see you and hear you. But just a reminder, empathy is not a bad thing. Nuance is important and literal interpretation is not always intended. And I can identify with and not identify as. Both are powerful."

Milano didn’t stop there. She started a thread in which she not-so-humble-bragged about her activism and admonished marginalized folks for calling out allies, according to Yahoo.


“I learned it doesn’t matter how pure your intentions are, or your 30 yrs of advocacy work & activism, if you use well established poetic license & nuance the very people you passionately fight for will be [upset] because you didn’t say it the literal way they’d prefer,” she wrote.

“When we try to silence those that fight the loudest for us, what are we telling those that fight against us?" she added. "Every time those on the left eat one of our own, the Right sees this as an opportunity to discredit the entire progressive movement. And the media covers it.”

Chief, we want to inform you: this isn’t it.
