US actress asks for donations before posting photo at Super Bowl

An American actress has been heavily criticized online for posting a photo of her and her son at the Super Bowl – just weeks after asking her fans to donate to his baseball team.

“#MotherSonBonding [“#MomentMèreFils” en français] #SuperBowl,” actress and producer Alyssa Milano said last Sunday, sharing a photo of her and her son on X, The Independent reported.

However, the image, which reached more than 16 million views in a few days, attracted the ire of several Internet users on social networks, who denounced the actress's participation in the expensive event after asking her fans to finance her a few weeks earlier His son's baseball team.

“My son’s baseball team is raising money for his trip to Cooperstown. Any amount would be greatly appreciated. You can learn more about the team and donate here,” Alyssa Milano tweeted on Jan. 25, sharing the $10,000 crowdfunding campaign.

Except that, according to CBS News, a single-seat ticket in Las Vegas for the event cost an average of $8,600.

However, it is unclear whether the actress paid for her tickets herself, as in a previous publication in December she promoted an American Cancer Society contest by offering donors the chance to win tickets to the event and a meeting with her.

Nevertheless, the parallel was denounced by many who did not mince words and, according to the man, called the actress a “real fraudster”. ©British Media.

“How dare you start a GoFundMe for your kids’ baseball team and then plunk down thousands of dollars for the Super Bowl? You're a clown, just like everyone else who donated to your ridiculous cause. Shame on you,” one of them wrote, according to The Independent.

Others gave a more measured speech and defended the actress.

“I'm not a fan of Alyssa, but the campaign isn't just about the part of the journey that her son is on. Should she pay for the whole team just because she's a celebrity? Calm down,” wrote another.

The actress had earlier clarified in another tweet that she “paid for the uniforms of the entire team and coaches, organized birthday parties and sponsored all the children who cannot afford a monthly contribution.”

“The kids also do their own fundraising: car washes, movie nights and lots of other fun things!” she said.
