Alyssa Milano got slammed for going to Super Bowl LVIII after previously setting up a GoFundMe and asking people to donate to fund her son’s baseball team trip to Cooperstown.
The 51-year-old actress and activist shared a picture on her Instagram on Sunday showing her and her son sitting in the stands in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium — where the Kansas City Chiefs scored a 25-22 victory in overtime against the San Francisco 49ers.
“My buddy. #mothersonlove #mothersonbond #superbowl,” Milano captioned her post.
OutKick’s Clay Travis wrote, “My good friend [Alyssa Milano] could afford Super Bowl tickets which cost an average of $10k each, but needed (much poorer) people on Twitter to pay for her son’s team’s Cooperstown, NY little league trip. Tony Danza would never.”
Another added, “So you have money to take your kid to the Super Bowl but want other people to donate to your son’s baseball team?”
While a third person wrote, “Let’s be real for a second. How can a celebrity start a gofundme for her son and say that she couldn’t afford it but then pull up to the super bowl? Please explain? I’m sure I’m not the only one that would love to hear YOUR answer, let alone hers?”
Last month, the “Charmed” star faced criticism after she created the crowd-funding page under her married name and shared it with her millions of followers on X, which caused the post to go viral, as previously reported.
Many people called the actress’ fundraiser “gross” and “next level tone deaf.”
“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,” Milano wrote on X with a link to the GoFundMe page.
Milano later responded to the criticism and said,”Every parent raises money for their child’s sports teams and many of them do so through GoFundMe. I am no different.”
“As much as I’d love to pay for the entire team and their families for travel, transportation, hotel, food and beverage, uniforms, trading pins and all the things teams do for this kind of trip — I can not afford to do so,” she added. “Maybe someday.”
