Well, that backfired. 

Actress, Alyssa Milano, is a well-known liberal political activist. On Sunday, she posted a picture on Twitter to speak out against Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and to show her support the “Rise Up For Roe” movement.

In the picture, Milano is dressed in a handmaid's costume from the dystopian novel, “The Handmaid's Tale,” by Margaret Atwood. Many on the left point to the book as an example of what the future of America could look like if pro-life laws were passed.

However, instead of supporting the message, the internet made the picture into a hilarious meme.

Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings are scheduled to begin on September 4 and will last three to four days. “Rise Up For Roe” is an activism event promoting pro-choice rights and an attempt to stop Kavanaugh's confirmation.
