Alyssa Milano sparks outrage after launching fundraiser for her son’s baseball trip

Alyssa Milano is facing criticism after turning to her fans on social media to donate to her son’s baseball trip via a GoFundMe page. Taking to X (formerly Twitter), the 51-year-old actress shared a photo of her 12-year-old son, Milo, with his baseball team, along with a plea for contributions to their Cooperstown trip. While expressing gratitude for any amount, Milano’s request drew backlash on social media, with many questioning why she, with a successful Hollywood career, is seeking funds for the trip. Critics argued that using GoFundMe for such purposes seemed inappropriate for a millionaire celebrity. Some highlighted Milano’s reported net worth, suggesting she should personally cover the expenses.

“Why isn’t Alyssa Milano paying for the trip for the whole team herself? Why is she asking for money from people who can barely buy groceries?” remarked one critic, echoing sentiments shared by others. However, amid the controversy, some fans defended Milano, emphasizing her contributions to the #MeToo Movement.

The GoFundMe campaign, initiated in the previous year for the “BIRDS 12U team’s Travel Fund,” aims to cover travel costs, uniforms, and dues for families to keep the team competitive. As of January 26, the page has raised $7,811 out of its $10,000 goal from over 240 donations. Milano has not responded to the criticism, and The Independent has reached out to her representative for comment.
