Alyssa Milano described how she was raped at a concert when she was a teenager in an emotional account.

The 45-year-old actress was one of the individuals who helped launch the #MeToo campaign following her accusations of sexual harassment against disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

The actress detailed her experience of being sexually assaulted in an emotional video that she posted on Twitter on Wednesday alongside a group of women who echoed her words.

Milano, 45, and the women were gathered at Senator Susan Collins’ office and when they could not locate the political leader, the women joined together to make the actress’ words her.

The 45-year-old Mistresses alum shared a video of her account on Twitter Wednesday, October 3, with the caption: “I told one of my #MeToo stories in @SenatorCollins office. I was with her constituent. We asked to speak with Senator Collins. She hid. Here’s my story through a ‘human microphone.’ I’ll never know if she heard me. *Trigger Warning*.”


In the clip, Milano tells a crowd of supporters gathered in Collins’ office, “When I was 19 years old, I was at a concert of a very famous pop star who told the crowd to get closer to her. This resulted in a stampede. People were smashed against each other. I couldn’t breathe. I thought I was gonna die. From behind me, I felt a hand up my skirt, and I was punched repeatedly in the vagina.”

She continued: “I couldn’t turn around. I looked to the stage, and I looked to the security guards, and I said, ‘Please help me.’ And they couldn’t help me. They shook their head. I managed to break free, and I climbed up the stage to get away from my predator.”

Alyssa then spoke through tears as she revealed she kept the incident a secret because she ‘didn’t know who to tell’, and spoke in defense of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who recently gave a testimony against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of historical sexual assault.

She added in the video: ‘And I turned around, and I didn’t know which one it was. And I looked to the sea of people, and I couldn’t find him. And I couldn’t report because I didn’t know who it was to report. And I didn’t tell anybody because I didn’t know who it was to tell on. And I kept the secret just like Dr. Ford kept her secret for decades.’

Kavanaugh has denied the sexual assault allegations leveled against him.

The outspoken actress’ video revelation comes just one week after Milano made an appearance at the Supreme Court Senate hearing on Sept. 27 to support Ford during her testimony day.

“We’re here to support her and show our solidarity,” she told CNN’s MJ Lee in a video Lee tweeted. “This can’t be an easy day for her.”

A few days prior to the Kavanaugh hearing, Milano joined the #WhyIDidntReport movement and revealed she was sexually assaulted in a tweet to President Donald Trump.

“Hey, @realDonaldTrump, Listen the f— up,” she wrote on Sept. 22. “I was sexually assaulted twice. Once when I was a teenager. I never filed a police report and it took me 30 years to tell my parents.”

The Insatiable actress then encouraged other sexual assault victims to follow her lead.

“If any survivor of sexual assault would like to add to this please do so in the replies. #MeToo.”

The actress, who attended the professor and the judge’s testimonies the previous week, shared similar videos from people in Alaska, North Dakota, West Virginia, South Carolina, Arizona and Colorado in an effort to show senators why some of their constituents want them to vote no on his nomination.
