Actress Alyssa Milano caved to backlash Monday over her lack of support for Tara Reade, who accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her.
The actress supported the Biden accuser in an early Tuesday morning tweet following a Fox News story in which Reade tore into Milano’s lack of support, saying Milano “knows nothing” about Reade’s story. Reade has accused Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, of sexually assaulting her while serving as his Senate staffer in 1993.
Milano’s comments follow just after Reade’s former neighbor, 60-year-old Lynda LaCasse, confirmed multiple details of the former senate staffer’s allegations against Biden.
Both reports sparked a backlash on social media as users urged Milano to examine the new evidence and support Reade.
