#GoFundTheWall: Alyssa Milano Mocks Triple-Amputee Veteran's Massive Border Wall Crowdfunding
Actress Alyssa Milano waded out of her depth as she slammed the border wall crowdfunding, implying the money should instead go to veterans. She was instantly reminded the campaign was started by a triple amputee vet.
The actress-turned-Democratic firebrand was left red-faced as after she took aim at the crowdfunding campaign to build a border wall between the US and Mexico, now at over $13mn. In a tweet on Thursday, Milano wrote: "Oh, yes! Let's #GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool."
It was not long before the tweet ignited a firestorm on Twitter, as many noticed Milano hand't done her homework, as the GoFundMe page was started by Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, a Purple Heart recipient, who lost three limbs in a rocket attack in Iraq.
The campaign, with a designated goal of $1bn, started less than a week ago and has already shot up to be one of the five top GoFundMe campaigns ever.
Milano's fellow Hollywood celebrity and outspoken conservative James Woods led the backlash against her, pointing out who started the fund.
