Actress Debra Messing is best known for playing Grace in the hit NBC comedy Will & Grace.
The show was wildly successful years ago and recently was rereleased with the same cast including Messing’s co-star Eric McCormack.The new season has been called the “social justice” season, so it’s no surprise that it’s already been canceled.
McCormack got into a backlash on Twitter after calling all Hollywood Trump supporters to be exposed:
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.
— Eric McCormack (@EricMcCormack) August 30, 2019
And then Messing tweeted out backing up McCormack’s tweet:
“Please print a list of all attendees, please. The public has a right to know.”
This created a backlash of people calling the co-stars “McCarthyists”:
Should Hollywood hold hearings to investigate suspected Trump supporters? – John Levine
Is everyone involved with Will and Grace a deranged McCarthyist, or is it just you two?
Boy that tolerance and inclusivity sure went out the window, huh?
Ted Cruz chimed in with:
“Tolerant Hollywood: “Burn them! Burn the witches!!”
Staunch Hollywood conservative Dean Cain tweeted out:
“I’m not attending, because I’ll be out of town. Otherwise, I’d have been happy to attend.”
President Trump is scheduled to have a Hollywood fundraiser in September.
