Alyssa Milano Backpedals After Biden's Accuser Calls Her Out.
Alyssa Milano the #Metoo advocate has decided she is going to acknowledge Biden's accuser Tara Reade. Milano has been an outspoken Biden supporter she even went as far as to call Reade's accusation a smear campaign against the former V.P. But now she is changing her tune after Reade called her out for her hypocrisy.
Milano originally tweeted:
"Right. This is clearly a smear campaign. And Warren not endorsing Bernie when their policies line up -to me- means she was telling the truth about what he said."
She also tweeted a clip about how after she endorsed Biden she suddenly felt men deserved due process. I guess Kavanaugh doesn't count...
I explained my silence on the allegations against Joe Biden in this clip.

Reade caught wind of this and called out the supposed #metoo advocate.
"Milano "only knows Joe Biden, so she doesn't know me and has never talked to me. So, how could she possibly talk about the case?" Reade asked. "She went on an interview... saying that Time's Up rejected me and that's not true, and she said she talked to Time's Up."
In response to Milano calling for "due process" for men accused of sexual assault, Reade said, "she really doesn't know anything about what happened to me," calling it "odd" that she would weigh in on an assault claim when she never attempted to seek information from the accuser.
"I don't what her role is. She's not really a professional helping women. She was basically talking about protecting powerful men the last time she made a statement," Reade said. "It's just the complete opposite of how she approached Brett Kavanaugh, so it's kind of weird and strange and I think she's just looking for ways to be relevant."
I guess the negative press got to the victim's advocate so she put a new tweet out acknowledging her.
"I’m aware of the new developments in Tara Reade’s accusation against Joe Biden. I want Tara, like every other survivor, to have the space to be heard and seen without being used as fodder. I hear and see you, Tara. #MeToo"
