Alyssa Milano Denies "Blackface" Claims and Says She Was "Parodying" Jersey Shore



Alyssa Milano has spoken out after images of her described as "blackface" resurfaced this week.

"Hey, assholes. The below picture is me parodying Jersey Shore and Snookie's tan. Snookie's tan (she is a sweetheart by the way) is worthy of parodying as is Trump's 'tan'. So go fuck yourselves with your smear campaign."

In the two minute video, makeup and wardrobe artists turn Milano into a character inspired by Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi from the popular MTV reality show.

This is the second time that the actress turned political activist has addressed the video of herself.
She warned her followers on Twitter that "right-wing trolls" were accusing her of appearing in blackface and offered the video as a way to provide more context to the incident. 

"If you see the screen grab that they are using maybe you can shut them down with a link to the entire video,"
