Alyssa Milano recently released an emotional video asking for citizens to protest against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh in the Supreme Court of the United States. The star of the Netflix series, Insatiable, appeared in a video created by NowThisOpinions and shared it on her Twitter feed.
In the clip, the #MeToo advocate asks for Americans to thwart Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court while also dishing on topics including assault rifles, abortion rights, and immigration reform.
The 45-year-old star opened on the behalf of Joaquin Oliver, who was killed at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. In a slightly incoherent statement, she remarks, “I was one of 17 people who died in that school on that day.”
We must #StopKavanaugh.
My video explains why.
Please watch and share. I promise it is worth your time.

According to Milano, weapons have “no place in the hands of private citizens;” they should be banned. She went on to speak on the behalf of a seventeen-year-old girl who died as well.
She said in the video, “the Trump administration tried to stop me,” and “Brett Kavanaugh tried to stop me.”
The actress, while seemingly exercising an over-the-top sense of self-importance, states that we need to get rid of Trump and his Supreme Court Justices otherwise they will do harm to the nation.
As fans of the actress know, this won’t be the first time that she’s urged people to vote against Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. On Twitter, people mocked her for posting an image of herself along with the theme of the dystopian series, The Handmaid’s Tale.
While her intentions are certainly good, some people on social media failed to see that side of the equation. One person wrote, “I’m really getting sick of celebrities telling me what to say, think, and do. I’ll vote for whoever I want to. By the way, I’m a hunter, so I’m not sure I want the AR-15 banned; it’s an excellent hunting rifle.”
