Poor little Alyssa Milano really really tried to encourage people to wear masks today but apparently no one in her personal life is courageous enough to tell her when she looks really really stupid. Check it out:

Ohhhh boy. There is a raging debate about just how effective cloth masks are to keep the definitely-not-Chinese-Wuhan-Chinese-virus from ravaging your internal organs, but I’m pretty sure that everyone understands that knit masks are mostly useless.
Unfortunately for Alyssa, no one close to her cares enough to clue her in when she looks dumb. But Twitter, on the other hand….
Yes listen to Alyssa Milano. Wear a crocheted mask with holes in it. Its safe and stuff. pic.twitter.com/Mv0j69pV0h

Sometimes I think there is an inverse relationship between the amount of knowledge and judgment someone has about a given topic and that person’s enthusiasm to instruct others about that topic. https://t.co/dNGG4p1OUn

Milano later claimed that there was a carbon filter in the mask, we just couldn’t see it, and also, we saw right through it, so it was basically invisible.
I’m not even a mask truther, and I think this is stupid.
Then there’s the white knight liberal backlash to the backlash:
So, MAGA Cultists are attacking Alyssa Milano for crocheting her own mask, calling her irresponsible whilst they protest against pandemic safety measures with Swastikas and guns in hand, call the pandemic a hoax and worship an idiot who refuses to wear a mask. STFU.

If you are mocking Alyssa Milano for wearing a knitted mask then you are a terrible person. That mask might save your life.

Sheesh Twitter is actually becoming a worse sewer of partisan gotchas.
