(LOS ANGELES) — When actress Alyssa Milano tweeted earlier this week that a sex tape involving her had leaked, many fans believed the Mistresses star was the latest celebrity to become involved in an online scandal.
In reality, the link Milano posted was a satirical response to the ongoing crisis in Syria. The star filmed the video for comedy website Funny or Die in an attempt to educate the public about the origins of the Syrian conflict.
In the video, Milano and a bathrobe-clad man prepare to get intimate when she “accidentally” kicks the camera to face the direction of a nearby television. On screen, a newscaster goes into detail about the Syrian conflict while Milano and the gentleman frolic on the rose-covered bed.
