Alyssa Milano said Friday on “The View” that people were “wearing their racism on their sleeves” now because of President Donald Trump.

The comment came during a panel discussion about a viral video of New York attorney Aaron Schlossberg threatening to call ICE on a worker at a sandwich shop and telling them to speak English. (RELATED: Meghan McCain To ‘View’ Co-Hosts: Give Melania ‘Some Credit’)

“Your staff is speaking Spanish to customers when they should be speaking English,” Schlossberg can be heard saying on the clip.

Joy Behar immediately turned the discussion to Trump, saying that the NY lawyer voted for the president.

“Well he’s a Trump voter, first of all,” Behar explained.”He is.”

She continued, “The White House sets the tone against immigrants, and so people feel like it’s a free day to just go after immigrants.”

Milano then jumped in, saying,”I think … the thing that upsets me the most is that people seem to be wearing their racism on their sleeves nowadays.”

“They’ve been given permission,” Behar interjected.

“It’s like are putting their scarf on. Their racist scarves,” Sunny Hostin added.

“They are proud of it now. It’s okay to be proud of being a racist now,” Milano added. “It’s awful.”
