Hollywood blacklister Eric McCarthy, er, Eric McCormack, finds it “very upsetting” that we all misinterpreted his request for a list of Trump supporters to blacklist as a blacklist.

On Tuesday, via Instagram, McCormack explained that his tweet from last week — remember that tweet where he asked the Hollywood Reporter for a list of people in the entertainment industry who attended a Trump fundraiser “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with…”? Well, Eric McCormack now says he didn’t actually mean that he wanted at list of people in the entertainment industry who attended a Trump fundraiser “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

You see, the truth is this: when he requested a list of people in the entertainment industry who attended a Trump fundraiser “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with,” according to his new Instagram post, what Eric McCormack really meant was, “I absolutely do not support blacklists or discrimination of any kind.”

Additionally, he adds that when he asked for a list of people in the entertainment industry who attended a Trump fundraiser “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with,” all he was really asking for was to “understand where Trump’s major donations are coming from.”

Worse still, because we all misinterpreted McCormack’s request for a list of those in the entertainment industry who attended a Trump fundraiser “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with” as a call for a blacklist, we upset him terribly.

Yes, shame on us, because according to his Instagram post, the very idea that we would interpret his request for a list of people in the entertainment industry who attended a Trump fundraiser “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with” as anything other than his taking a stand against blacklists, has been “very upsetting” for Mr. McCormack.

McCarthy’s, er, McCormack’s Will and Grace co-star, the aging harpy and racist Debra Messing, who also called for a LIST of attendees because *wink-wink* the public has a right to know, is now tweeting the news that McCormack’s latest Instagram post “perfectly explains the intent behind each of our posts concerning the fundraiser” — you know, the fundraiser where they requested a LIST of attendees “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

What a wonderful thing it must be to live in a velvet bubble where you can 1) openly request a list of people you intend to blacklist, and then 2) get away with scolding the rest of the world for misinterpreting your open call for a list of people to blacklist.

Just once I would like to see someone, anyone, among our elite, just come out and say, You know what? I overreacted. I made a mistake. My emotions got the best of me. I was wrong. Sorry about that. I take it back.

I find owning up to my mistakes, and I’ve made my share, rather liberating.

But no…

What do Bret Stephens and the New York Times do after his crybaby “bedbug” tantrum…? They fabricate history to justify the crybaby tantrum.

And what does Eric McCormack do after requesting an actual list of people to blacklist…? Says it is “very upsetting” how we all misinterpreted him.

And they all get away with it because in the end, if you’re one of the Beautiful People, you can do no wrong. As long as you direct your hate and lies and totalitarian beliefs in the “approved” places, no amount of cruelty, lies, or stupidity costs you a thing.
