“Millennials don’t understand how catastrophic it could be if Hillary doesn’t win,” Debra added. “If they stay home, progress made in the last 50 years could be eviscerated. If you care about those you need to make your voice heard. The alternative will be the opposite.”

Debra is set to give a speech at the Democratic National Convention kicking off July 25 in Philadelphia, alongside Chloe Moretz, Demi Lovato, President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

Debra Messing Apologizes for Insensitive Tweet During UCLA Shooting

Debra Messing looks chic in a little black dress as she mingles during the Cadillac House Grand Opening on Wednesday (June 1) in New York City.

The Mysteries of Laura actress was joined by singer Kelly Rowland at the event. Also celebrating the opening were actress Mamie Gummer and actors Zachary Quinto and Andrew Rannells, all of whom made sure to grab a group selfie together.

Debra has taken to Twitter to apologize for an insensitive tweet she sent out during the UCLA shooting that day. She posted a photo of herself watching the “horrendous” news, but she was wearing a t-shirt with the slogan “Under the Gun.”

“I was so shocked and struck by the horrible IRONY that yet another shooting was occurring as I was participating in this effort,” Debra wrote in a message after deleting the post. “In an effort to highlight the irony, I posted a picture referencing the breaking news.”

“I am heartbroken and embarrassed that many people misconstrued my actions and that I caused offense,” Debra added. “The horrendous irony of the timing, I was hoping, would shine an even brighter light on the crisis and need for all of us to do something together to make the US safer. I am so truly sorry.”

Debra Messing's 'Mysteries of Laura' Canceled After 2 Seasons

Debra Messing‘s crime drama The Mysteries of Laura has been canceled by NBC after two seasons on the network.

The series had a strong launch back in fall 2014 and stayed strong throughout its run, but the network reportedly has a strong lineup of new pilots that it had to make room for, according to Deadline.

Because The Mysteries of Laura is produced by Warner Bros., there is not extra incentive for NBC to keep it on the air.

Debra starred alongside Josh Lucas, Laz Alonso, and Janina Gavankar in the series.
