Alyssa Milano, the actress turned political activist and entrepreneur, is not happy that people are accusing her of wearing blackface in a 2013 parody video she shot for Funny Or Die.

Like, really not happy about it.

The 47-year-old star went off on Twitter on Tuesday after an article appeared on the internet which said, “Alyssa Milano Facing Backlash Over “Blackface Scandal” After Damning Photo Comes Back To Haunt Her.”

“Hey, assholes. The below picture is me parodying Jersey Shore and Snookie’s tan, Milano wrote.

“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.”

Milano also provided a link to the video.

Despite her vehement denial, a lot of people still weren’t buying Milano’s excuse for changing the color of her skin, parody or not.

I don’t know… it looks like Milano is going to have to take an L on this one. While what she did may not technically be blackface, mocking someone’s ethnicity or skin tone, regardless of what race they are, is something one really shouldn’t do, right?

Look at it this way, if The Golden Girls are getting an episode pulled from Hulu because of them wearing mud masks, then what Milano did was certainly worse than that.
