Actress and #MeToo activist Alyssa Milano attempted to show just how safe she was being by wearing a face mask to protect her from coronavirus. The photo was a selfie with her family all wearing masks, but Milano's mask was a homemade knitted mask with holes in it.
The problem is with the mask's appearance, which seems to show it is decorative rather than functional.
Twitter users were quick to point out how Milano's crocheted mask had holes in it and likely wasn't doing anything at all. Masks keep people safe and healthy. Show me yours! Ready? "That mask might save your life", one fan wrote, while others put her carbon filters to the test and snapped photos of themselves in similar masks! "If you are mocking Alyssa Milano for wearing a knitted mask then you are a awful person. A carbon one. My mom makes them", she explained in a tweet on Saturday, May 23, adding an eye roll emoji and the hashtag #WearAMask.
Of course, it also reminded people of this gas station lady that went viral a few weeks back. who cut a hole in her own mask so she could breathe easier. "So, yes, it might be crochet but totally safe", she tweeted along with a link to the filters she ordered from Amazon.
