Alyssa Milano mocked after tweeting “A MASK WILL PROTECT YOU *MORE* THAN AN AR-15 WILL”

Monday, actress and activist Alyssa Milano stirred debate online by making the provocative claim that a mask will protect you more than a AR-15 will.

Milano’s full tweet is “Anti-maskers are the same people who think they need an AR-15 for “protection”.

LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK: A MASK WILL PROTECT YOU *MORE* THAN AN AR-15 WILL.”

Milano then blocked replies from everyone other than those she follows, in other words over 99.9% of the Twitterverse was censored from replying to Milano directly.

As expected, the statement garnered quite a few reactions.

The few that Milano follows and were allowed to reply to her directly also sounded off.

Stephen Gutowski wrote “Those tools are for very different kinds of threats. I own both AR-15s and KN-95s. I don’t see any conflict in that whatsoever.”

Cindy Lou, a supporter of Milano’s claim replied “Exactly! An AR-15 is useless against a virus and pretty much anything else in life.”

Conchita Leeflang, who Milano follows, also agreed with Milano and replied “Amen to that.”
