Actress Alyssa Milano is surrounded by reporters before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

Recently, actress and activist Alyssa Milano added her response to the #WhyIDidntReport movement that struck up.

"If you're going to attack for her OUTFIT, you're part of the problem", Twitter user Rob Browatzke said, with another echoing the sentiment by replying to a troll slamming the actress for her dress choice. "I never filed a police report and it took me 30 years to tell me [sic] parents". "I believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford", she wrote.

Milano was there as a guest of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat who received a letter from Ford over the summer and who was criticized by Republicans for sitting on the information at first.

She posted an image of Kavanaugh swearing in on Twitter. Along with a video of Kavanaugh, Milano wrote, "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". "I was there to support a survivor of sexual assault", she said. She also shared several videos.

Footage shows Milano filming as Kavanaugh gave his testimony, and a security guard walking up to her from behind and ordering her to stop.

Alyssa Milano will not be silent in Washington D.C. For anyone who grew up watching Milano cast spells and team up with her sisters to defeat evil forces, the latter feels more fitting.

"... I felt like I needed to be here to show solidarity and my support to Ford for this day that surely will be incredibly hard for her".

According to Milano, Kavanaugh's rage radiated from him as he took his seat in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She stated, "I remember thinking what a strong, amazing, solid woman she was to come forward", adding, "What a service she was doing for all women".

Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegations. "It took me years after my assault to voice the experience to my closest friends. They should have been anxious about the optics of a group of men with a lack of humanity not questioning Dr. Ford about sexual assault".
