Alyssa Milano is being shamed for her 'revealing' top at the Kavanaugh hearings

Alyssa Milano attended Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee in support of Professor Christine Blasey Ford‘s testimony that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school. However, Milano’s “Hollywood outfit” and “tacky” cleavage was slammed as theatrics. 

The actress and mother-of-two was a guest of Democratic SenatorDianne Feinstein who initially received a private letter written by Ford alleging that Kavanaugh held her down on a bed and forcefully tried to remove her clothing at a 1982 house party, restricting her breathing.

Wearing a black dress and a black leather jacket, Milano tweeted encouragement to Ford from the crowd. She also told ABC News, “I felt like I needed to be here to show my solidarity for Dr. Ford on this day that will be very difficult for her.” Milano reportedly teared up during the hearing. 

During the testimony, people opined that Milano’s outfit was inappropriate, tweeting “Nice cleavage” and “disrespectful.”

On Thursday, Milano also shared her memories of the 1991 trial during which attorney Anita Hill accused Judge Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, telling ABC News, “I remember thinking what a strong, amazing, solid woman she was to come forward. What a service she was doing for all women.”

Milano added, “Women are standing together now in solidarity.”
