Self-proclaimed activist Alyssa Milano doubled down on her controversial tweet in which she compared "Make America Great Again” hats to the white hoods worn by the Ku Klux Klan. The Hollywood actress said she's "sorry not sorry" in a new op-ed published by The Wrap on Wednesday night.
As previously reported, Milano took to Twitter on Sunday to address the viral video of students from Covington Catholic High School participating in the March for Life who appeared to clash with a group of Native Americans marching in the Indigenous Peoples March.
“The red MAGA hat is the new white hood,” she wrote. “Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself.”

The actress went on to continue bashing the high school students. So much tolerance from here.
The star, who received immediate backlash for the tweet, especially after longer videos emerged from different angles sparking debate over the behavior of people on both sides of the altercation, doubled down on her remarks in the lengthy column.
