Will & Grace Stars Called Out By Whoopi Goldberg and Seinfeld’s John O’Hurley
The View’s host Whoopi Goldberg bashed Will & Grace stars Debra Messing and Eric McCormack after they asked for a list of attendees to Trump’s Hollywood fundraiser.
Goldberg compared the actors’ request for the list to McCarthyism. “Listen, the last time people did this people ended up killing themselves. This is not a good idea,” Goldberg advised. “We had something called a blacklist, and a lot of really good people were accused of stuff. Nobody cared whether it was true or not. They were accused. And they lost their right to work.”
Goldberg added, “In this country, people can vote for who they want to. That is one of the great rights of this country. You don’t have to like it, but we don’t go after people because we don’t like who they voted for. We don’t go after them that way. We can talk about issues and stuff, but we don’t print out lists. I’m sure you guys misspoke when you said that because it sounded like a good idea. Think about it. Read about it. Remember what the blacklist actually meant to people and don’t encourage anyone, anyone, to do it.”
Trump’s fundraiser will be held in Beverly Hills on September 17, just five days before the Emmy’s.
The unhinged Will & Grace actress asked the Hollywood Reporter for a list of Trump’s Hollywood fundraiser attendees last Friday. Messing tweeted, “Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know.”

Messing’s co-star Eric McCormack also demanded the list. McCormack tweeted to the Hollywood Reporter, “Hey, @THR, kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with. Thx.”
Dr. Darrell Scott tweeted to Messing, “I wish @DebraMessing and any other of them Hollywood Hypocrites would EVER try to bully me. I’ll be at the fundraiser with the Potus in Beverly Hills on the 17th. Put my name on your list. Better yet…come see me.”
Messing replied, “Is that a threat, sir? I didn’t realize requesting public information be printed by an outlet, is bullying. I think what you just wrote is worse than bullying. Congratulations. You made God proud.”

Seinfeld star John O’Hurley spoke out against the Will & Grace stars on Fox News Monday, “I’m embarrassed for both of them. I’ll say this because I know them both and I’ve worked with Debra before. They’re both smart people. They do wonderful work but they’re pushing a case that falls apart from the sheer weight of its lunacy, as though the Hollywood community needs to be purged of this social and intellectual hygiene problem called conservative thinking.”
O’Hurley told Fox’s Leland Vittert, “It underscores the fact that we aren’t receptive to diversity thought, which is the exact opposite of what you feel the liberal way would be. I find that obscene.”
