Alyssa Milano was seated behind Brett Kavanaugh Thursday as he gave his fiery testimony and she was asked to stop recording video of the historic event.
She posted an image of Kavanaugh swearing in on Twitter.
Nearly an hour later, she posted video of his testimony.
I will say this...if a woman were to yell, interrupt and cry while being questioned, people would call her unhinged or say she had a melt down. pic.twitter.com/qBDuBP0QHt— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) September 27, 2018
Capitol Police told her to stop because recording video is not permitted unless you're a member of the press.
The “Who’s the Boss?” star wasn’t in the audience during the question-and-answer portion of the hearing and tweeted about it.
Oh God, I wish there could be an audience q&a portion of this hearing.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) September 27, 2018
On Friday morning, she cleared up rumors on social media that she had her phone taken away. She said it was not confiscated but her “Believe Women” sign was. She also confirmed Capitol Police warned her about recording video.
P.S. I did not have my phone confiscated as proven by the fact that I didn’t stop making social media posts. I did have my, “believe woman” sign confiscated though. And a policeman warned me about taking video on my phone.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) September 28, 2018
Milano, one of the leaders of the #MeToo movement, spoke at a rally Friday in Washington.
"[I am] completely overwhelmed," Milano told Inside Edition when asked about Kavanaugh's testimony. "I am angry."
