Alyssa Milano asked her many followers/fans to chip in for her son’s youth baseball trip — and because she’s perceived as incredibly wealthy … she’s getting dragged through the coals.
The actress posted a link to a GoFundMe account that she and her husband, David Bugliari, started on behalf of their kid’s 12U squad … which she calls a travel fund that’ll help the boys get to Cooperstown for a big baseball tournament, plus other expenses.
She wrote, “My son’s baseball team is raising money for their Cooperstown trip. Any amount would be so greatly appreciated. You can read more about the team and make a donation here” … after which, she linked to the GFM page, which has a goal of raising $10,000.
The cash, the page says, will go toward travel costs, uniforms and family dues for players — and it benefits the whole team, of course … not just Alyssa’s son. Still, the internet’s pissed.
You can hop into the “Alyssa Milano” trend this AM to get a sense of what the hell everyone’s so angry about because of this — but it’s pretty straight-forward … people are complaining that AM is a huge star, who’s presumably loaded and who can afford this with the snap of her finger. So … why is she going around soliciting donations like a normie???
As you can imagine, the jokes are flying at Alyssa’s expense — but a lot of folks are genuinely outraged that she’d try to fundraise considering her position. Even more interesting is the fact that in the list of visible donors, none appear to feature her name.
She hasn’t addressed all the hand-wringing just yet — but TBH, this feels like a case of people making assumptions about her on a number of fronts … and we’ll just leave it at that.
