Alyssa Milano has taken up a new cause: reducing the amount of plastic and waste used in toy packaging and manufacturing.

But the actress and activist’s call to arms over the issue — which she posted on Twitter after celebrating her two children’s birthdays over the weekend — didn’t get the warmest reception. While several critics accused Milano of complaining too much, some took the opportunity to attack her over her recent admission that she had two abortions in 1993.

Many fans agreed with her cause, but the tweet also sparked some negativity.

Milano quickly responded to the “disgusting” comments by accusing critics — whom she slammed as “Trump trolls” — of “showing your hatefulness.”

Her fans offered support and praised her for standing up for herself, though her reaction did prompt further backlash from some critics, one of whom shot back, “Too bad you didn’t have empathy and compassion for the babies you murdered.”
