The presidential race is heating up, and "Will & Grace" stars Debra Messing, and Eric McCormack are now in the center of attention. They demand that Hollywood blacklist actors that will attend a fundraiser for President Donald Trump. The fundraiser will happen during Emmy awards weeks, so both Messing and McCormack ask for public shaming of celebrities that support Trump.
Messing was the first to react on Twitter, asking for names of all people attending the political event, and McCormack agreed with her by typing that he would not work with anyone that supports Trump. Their comments only added fuel to the fire, as there are tweets of support, but also those that are saying that actors are going against free-thinking, tolerance, and inclusivity. Prominent actor Dean Cain who is conservative, replied to Messing that he won't come to Trump fundraiser, but only because he has other obligations. Senator Ted Cruz called this initiative a witch hunt.
Tickets for the event will start from $1,000, but packages could cost up to $100,000. While not all the details are presented to the public, media reports are saying that host of the event will be Ronna McDaniel, as Republican National Committee Chairwoman. She will be joined by Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale, RNC co-chairman Tommy Hicks Jr, and Trump Victory finance chairman Todd Ricketts.
Messing added even more fuel to the fire by supporting a Baptist church in Birmingham, Alabama, which put a sign that claims that black people supporting Trump are mentally ill. On the other side of the sign, it is claimed that any white person voting for Trump is a racist. The actress is currently starring in "Will & Grace" that debuted strong in 2017 but is steadily in decline, and it will end in July next year.
