Attention seeking liberals are at their best when playing the victim, as seen in a video shared online by Alyssa Milano.
The avid mask-wearing actress spoke out last week about contracting COVID-19, and warned about hair loss associated with the virus as she brushed her wet hair.
After brushing her hair and pulling out large clumps of hair, Milano would conclude by declaring, “Wear a damn mask.”

What the rabid Trump-hating thespian doesn’t seem to grasp is precisely what folks are asking: If you’re always wearing a mask, how did you contract the coronavirus?
As with most things involving Milano, her history with the virus is complicated.
Though she experienced symptoms of coronavirus in April, when tested the results came back negative.
After four months of living with lingering symptoms, she announced in an Instagram post last week, Milano would get an antibody test from a blood draw and tested positive for covid antibodies — the accompanying photo of her in an oxygen mask was from April.
“I had Covid19. I just want you to be aware that our testing system is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers,” she wrote. “I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying.”
Being the great humanitarian that she is, the actress also let followers know that she will allow herself to be an instrument of rescue for others.
“I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life,” Milano proclaimed.
Oh, and she reminded her followers to be sure to wash their hands, wear a mask and social distance.

This was me on April 2nd after being sick for 2 weeks. I had never been this kind of sick. Everything hurt. Loss of smell. It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t keep food in me. I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks. I was confused. Low grade fever. And the headaches were horrible. I basically had every Covid symptom. At the very end of march I took two covid19 tests and both were negative. I also took a covid antibody test (the finger prick test) after I was feeling a bit better. NEGATIVE. After living the last 4 months with lingering symptoms like, vertigo, stomach abnormalities, irregular periods, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, zero short term memory, and general malaise, I went and got an antibody test from a blood draw (not the finger prick) from a lab. I am POSITIVE for covid antibodies. I had Covid19. I just want you to be aware that our testing system is flawed and we don’t know the real numbers. I also want you to know, this illness is not a hoax. I thought I was dying. It felt like I was dying. I will be donating my plasma with hopes that I might save a life. Please take care of yourselves. Please wash your hands and wear a mask and social distance. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I felt. Be well. I love you all (well, maybe not the trolls. Just the kind people.)❤️
Three days later, on Saturday, she tweeted a photo from the hospital, saying she went to the ER to check for blood clots after experiencing “real heaviness in my chest.”
I was acutely sick w/ Covid19 in April. I still have many symptoms. I am what they call a “long hauler”. Last night, I had real heaviness in my chest. I went to the ER just to make sure it wasn’t a blood clot. Thankfully, it wasn’t.
This virus sucks. Please take it seriously. pic.twitter.com/JcMkVSNn4y

Which goes back to the question of how did Milano end up with the virus if she was adhering to these guidelines?
After all, it’s not like Hollywood would be hypocritical about such things. Right?
She did share in another tweet that it may have happened while traveling between Portland, New York and Los Angeles.
One thing is clear, given the vitriol Milano has directed at those who think differently than she does, or supports a candidate she doesn’t care for, there was little sympathy offered.
@Alyssa_Milano Say Whaaat???Didn’t you ALWAYS wear one? So mAsks don’t work!? Who knew!? Perhaps you should have chosen a different muzzle other than that crochet debacle. PS
In your never ending quest for relevance, this latest jaunt STILL hasn’t helped. #sorrynotsorry https://t.co/N2OAvgQpni

Here’s a sampling of other responses from Twitter:
Being ill is a stressor on the body, especially respiratory issues. So are medications to treat. Aging and dying hair causes breakage and loss, also. Not sure you’ve proven a direct correlation that CoVid specifically causes hair loss. Be grateful you haven’t lost your life, punk

This happens from wearing your hair back in a tight ponytail.

That’s not Covid.
It’s your TDS.

Adrenochrome withdrawal. Plus your stress levels are through the roof and couple that with your intense levels of fear, yeah, you’re gonna age really quickly.

My husband and I are recovering from COVID. We wore our masks everywhere in public which goes to show masks are useless. And do you really think there is anyone left who takes you seriously?

Alyssa Milano is going to make a mask out of her shedded hair isn’t she.
