Will & Grace actress Debra Messing shared a story from The Hollywood Reporter which detailed President Trump appearing at a Beverly Hills fundraiser for his re-election campaign. Upon seeing this, Messing demanded that a list of all attendees should be made public.

Messing wrote on Twitter, “Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know.”

Following Messing’s tweet calling for The Hollywood Reporter to out attendees, she thanked an Alabama church for posting a sign that read, “A black vote for Trump is mental illness” with the other side reading, “A white vote for Trump is pure racism.” She has since deleted that tweet.

Messing’s co-star from Will & Grace Eric McCormack had previously called for the guest list be made public. He would tweet, “Hey, The Hollywood Reporter, kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with. Thx.”

The 100 actor Isaiah Washington would question if McCormack’s tweet was good for society. Washington asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, “Hey Jack is this tweet openly threatening to “blacklist” American Citizens in Hollywood okay for the good of society? Just asking for a friend.”

Former Lois and Clark actor Dean Cain responded to Messing’s tweet and indicated he would attend if he wasn’t out of town. (Related:Dean Cain: Alyssa Milano’s Bullying of Georgia Over Pro-Life Bill is “Dead Wrong”)

Messing would double down in a subsequent tweet. She would write, “I am proud to be a donor when I contribute to a campaign. I am happy to be listed when I attend a fundraiser. I am assuming anyone who donates to Trump’s fundraiser would feel the same. Why wouldn’t they?”

Just a few hours later, Messing would post an article detailing how you can find out who donated to Donald Trump in your area.

On Tuesday, Eric McCormack decided to explain his previous comments. (Related: Mission Impossible Actor Alec Baldwin Believes President Trump Wants To Kill America)

He wrote:

“I want to be clear about my social media post from last week, which has been misinterpreted in a very upsetting way. I absolutely do not support blacklists or discrimination of any kind, as anyone who knows me would attest. I’d simply like to understand where Trump’s major donations are coming from, which is a matter of public record. I am holding myself responsible for making educated and informed decisions that I can morally and ethically stand by and to do that, transparency is essential.”

However, McCormack made it very clear that he was attending to blacklist individuals who were attending the event in his previous tweet. He specifically stated he would use the list to make sure he didn’t work with any of the attendees.

Messing  would echo McCormack’s Instagram post. She posted it to Twitter and added, “I couldn’t have said it better.”

What do you make of Messing and McCormack’s comments? What about the responses from Isaiah Washington and Dean Cain?
