Actress Debra Messing joined her Will & Grace co-star Eric McCormack in calling for a outing of Hollywood attendees of next month’s Beverly Hills fundraiser for President Donald Trump.
“Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know,” Messing wrote to her 577k Twitter followers in response to a Hollywood Reporter story detailing the fundraiser, set for September 17.

Messing’s co-star Eric McCormack pushed the same idea a day earlier, encouraging the Hollywood Reporter to actively dox the fundraiser attendees so “the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”
“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,” he wrote.

His cry provoked a response from actor Isaiah Washington, who asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey if McCormack’s tweet was “okay for the good of society.”
“Hey @jack is this tweet openly threatening to ‘blacklist’ American Citizens in Hollywood okay for the good of society? Just asking for a friend,” Washington said.

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, co-chairman Tommy Hicks Jr., Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, and Trump Victory finance chairman Todd Ricketts will host the fundraiser, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Like McCormack, Debra Messing has a history of publicly slamming the president. Earlier this month, she demanded fellow Democrats to “vote blue no matter who” in order to “stop all of Trump’s torture and rolling back of rights.”
