ALYSSA Milano will not stand for haters trying to drag her for her choice of face mask during the coronavirus pandemic.
The actress, 47, got trolled on Twitter after she shared a photo of her family wearing face masks but hers appeared to be crocheted and had holes in it.
The mom-of-two posted a selfie of her with husband Dave Bugliari, 39, and their two kids Elisabella, 5, and Milo, 8, in their SUV.
All four were wearing face masks of different varieties but it was Alyssa's that got people's attention.
She captioned the selfie on Twitter writing: "Show me your masks! Masks keep people safe and healthy. Show me yours! Ready? Go!"
But people quickly pointed out her mask would be useless if it had holes in it.
One Twitter user it compared it to a metal fence with big gaps between the wires writing: "Your mask is exactly what this fence does to keep mosquitoes out."
Another wrote: "Yours is the least effective possible."
Some even fashioned their own absurd masks to tease Alyssa, including one man who taped a CD to his face.
The Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended that people wear a cloth face cover out in public, either to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
But it warned that the cloth face cover was not a substitute for social distancing, but rather to prevent an individual spreading coronavirus if they may have it and are not aware they do.
The CDC's recommendations for face masks was that they should fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
and completely covers the nose and mouth.
It also recommended that the face mask included multiple layers of fabric.
Not one to be bullied, Alyssa fired back at the trolls telling them her mask had a filter in it.
She wrote on Twitter: "A**holes, mask has a carbon filter in it. So, yes, it might be crochet but totally safe. #WearAMask.
"Mask has a filter in it for f—'s sake. A carbon one. My mom makes them."
The former Charmed actress then shared a link to the carbon filter her mom used to make the mask.
Currently nearly 98,683 Americans have died from Covid-19 but a new statistical model predicted the death toll that could surge to 288,000 deaths.
