Debra Messing & Eric McCormack Clarify Their Call for List of Hollywood's Trump Supporters

Debra Messing and Eric McCormack are clarifying the intentions behind their call for a list of Hollywood stars attending a fundraiser for President Trump‘s re-election campaign.

The Will & Grace co-stars previously took to Twitter requesting for the media to report on who attended the event. Eric said he wanted the info “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

Trump released some tweets slamming Debra and The View‘s Whoopi Goldberg also called out the stars, saying that their messages made her think of the Hollywood blacklist from the 1940s and 50s.

On Monday (September 3), Eric wrote this message on his Instagram account: “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.”

Eric added, “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.”

Debra reposted the message and said, “My friend @eric_mccormack posted this today. It perfectly explains the intent behind each of our posts concerning the fundraiser. I am posting it here because, honestly, I couldn’t have said it better.”
