Over the weekend, Milano debuted a new look: cornrows.

Cornrows are a traditionally black hairstyle, and their origins date back thousands of years. In recent years, the subject of who can rock the 'do has been debated by celebrities like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and in prominent publications like the New York Times.


Some even referred to her by her Charmed character's name as a way of calling her out.


Naturally, the photo spread across the internet, and an eagle-eyed person looked beyond Milano's braids and turned their attention to the people in the background of the photo.


More of the same jokes continued on that platform, too.


Some didn't even recognize that it was Milano.

@Phil_Lewis_ Is that Alyssa Milano? IM FUCKING SCREAMING

And reaction GIFs were plentiful as people weighed in on the hairstyle.

Amid the jokes, some called out Milano for cultural appropriation, and she briefly engaged with someone who called her out via a Twitter thread.

More conversations of the same sentiment continued in Milano's own comments section on Instagram as well.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Alyssa Milano's publicist for comment.
