Alyssa Milano Says “Racist” Redskins Name “Can’t be Tolerated Any Longer”…After She Profited From Selling Redskins Gear


From Breirbart

Oddly enough, a few years ago, Milano lent her name to “Touch by Alyssa Milano,” a collection of sportswear items including photos of the actress wearing several different Washington Redskins shirts.

In fact, in February, the Pacific Standard published an article pleading for Milano to stop selling “racist clothes.”

Milano, though, claims to have been trying to get out of her “Touch” contract and has posted several tweets asking those with whom she had done business to change the advertisements.

“Hey, guys. Been trying to get this taken care of for years. NFL/NHL licensing is inclusive of these teams. PLEASE email at [email protected] and I will forward complaints to manufacturing company,” Alyssa Milano said in 2017. “My manufacturing company controls the line and what we sell based on licensing from leagues. There is no reason for me to lie to you. I’m not a hurtful person. Im giving you my email address. Please use it. Thank you.”

She also addressed the issue in an interview with Adweek where she claims to have tried to alter her contract to allow her to pick and choose what teams she would allow her face to be used to sell NFL merchandise.

“I have asked them to stop producing merchandise for that team (don’t even want to write the word) numerous times, and they have said that contractually they can’t pick and choose which teams under their contract with the NFL they produce merchandise for,” Milano told AdWeek. “I was told I’d be in a breach of contract with the manufacturing company.”

“I am against the use of disparaging names and imagery in sports. Full stop. Sports teams and leagues need to stand up to racism,” she added.

Alyssa Milano is also facing backlash from the left-wing cancel culture mob after a Huffington Post article showing her wearing cornrows began circulating online.
