Alyssa Milano can’t catch a break from critics online.

Milano, 51, is under fire once again after attending the 2024 Super Bowl, where the Kansas City Chiefs went against the San Francisco 49ers, on Sunday. She attended the game with her son Milo, 12, and shared a photo of the two from their seats at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

“My buddy. #mothersonlove #mothersonbond #superbowl,” Milano captioned the post.

The “Charmed” star stoked controversy just two weeks prior when she took to the internet to ask fans for donations for a New York City trip for her son’s baseball team. Now, fans were keeping her accountable and responded in an uproar over her Super Bowl post.

“Wow, donations must have been pretty good ????????????” one user commented under the post.

While it’s unclear whether Milano was invited to the Super Bowl or whether she had to pay for her ticket, prices for this year’s big game were at historic levels.

It’s the most expensive Super Bowl on record, TickPick told USA TODAY Sports, with average prices around $9,365 on the secondary market. For reference, Super Bowl 57’s average ticket price was $5,795, TickPick said.

“I’m a travel baseball mom. My sons team is also going to Cooperstown this summer. We are a hard working middle class family and we are paying for our son to go. Would never beg people for money to pay for my kids sports. Entitlement at its best,” another Instagram user commented.

While many users were upset with Milano’s post, some came to her defense.

“So many mean and angry people here… it’s not up to you or me to judge we’re she spends her money,” a user said about Milano. “I’ve met Alyssa just a week ago and she’s a lovely person. You can see she is sincere and caring. So let her be and enjoy life. And she can make her own decisions of what to do. She has done more than many people here for the world.”

“Stay out of folks’ pockets. Ya’ll worried about a fundraiser she did to support her son’s team. Why did she do it? Because that is what parents of athletes do… period!. The money is not for her son,” another commenter added.

Alyssa Milano calls out ‘hurtful’ trolls after initial backlash

Earlier this month, the actress and activist took to Instagram to call out “trolls” for being “hurtful.”

“Every parent raises money for their child’s sports teams and many of them do so through GoFundMe. I am no different,” she captioned screenshots of people commenting on her son Milo Bugliari’s photos.

“As much as I’d love to pay for the entire team and their families for travel, transportation, hotel, food and beverage, uniforms, trading pins and all the things teams do for this kind of trip — I can not afford to do so. Maybe someday,” she continued.

Milano first faced backlash after asking fans for donations to a fundraiser benefitting her son’s baseball team. “My son’s baseball team is raising money for their Cooperstown trip,” the actress wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter, late last month. “Any amount would be so greatly appreciated.”

A GoFundMe page she linked to, which was created last May, seeks $10,000 for the team’s travel fund. In her Instagram post, Milano slammed people for taking out their frustrations on her 12-year-old son.

“Regardless of how you feel about me, going on to my hardworking 12 year old son’s Instagram page and leaving these kinds of messages is so horrid. Leave the kids alone. Let them play baseball,” she wrote. “If you are against donating — don’t donate. If you’d like to donate to help the team’s families — we appreciate it — the link is in his bio.”
