Actress Alyssa Milano faced criticism for soliciting donations for her son’s baseball team’s travel expenses through a GoFundMe campaign, given her reported wealth.

The fundraiser raised over $7,000. While some defended her, others, including Fox News contributor Joe Concha, found it inappropriate.

Milano said, “My son’s baseball team is raising money for their Cooperstown trip. Any amount would be so greatly appreciated. You can read more about the team and make a donation here.”

Fox News’ Joe Concha said, “Alyssa is worth a reported $10 million. And look, having traveled to 3 tournaments last summer in 3 different cities in 3 different states, I get it. It’s beyond expensive. But to ask for donations here given her worth and the fact her husband is a CAA agent is really something.”

“Your husband has a net worth of $5 MILLION and you are begging for money on the internet so your son can go on a trip?” commented a user.

“Americans can’t afford groceries and she’s worth millions but she wants others to donate to *her* kid’s baseball team?” wrote another.

Conservative commentator Kira Davis defended Milano, stating that it’s not her responsibility to fund every school activity and that her celebrity status could be used to help fellow parents.

Kira Davis wrote, “Leave her alone. It’s not her job to fund every school activity. Milano is a celebrity with a large reach. I imagine her fellow parents asked for a boost and why shouldn’t they? It’s a helpful thing.”

“Confront her for her opinions, fine. But don’t trash her for sharing a simple fundraiser. You have no idea what she and her husband fund at that school. And it’s also valuable for the rest of the team to be involved in the fundraising. Why does everyone have to be such a bastard about everything all the time? Not everything requires snark or envy,” she continued.

Davis urged people to consider the broader context and not attack Milano for sharing a simple fundraiser.
