Eric McCormack and Debra Messing are facing backlash over their response to news there would be a Hollywood fundraiser for President Trump.

The Hollywood Reporte r broke the news yesterday revealing a Beverly Hills fundraiser will take place the same week as the Primetime Emmy Awards. Both of the Will & Grace stars used Twitter to put those who dare to attend the fundraiser on blast.

"Please print a list of all attendees, please. The public has a right to know," Messing tweeted in response to the report.

Her costar and good friend, McCormack also wants to put Trump supporters on notice. He sent his own message via Twitter too.

"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," the actor declared in response to the news.

The fundraiser is part of President Trump's re-election efforts organized by Trump Victory.

It didn't take long for Messing and McCormack's Tweets to gain attention. The comments section of both erupted with people slamming the actors for their response in putting Hollywood people who support Trump on notice.

"Said the woman who made her fame on a show that denied gay actors a chance to play the lead and then humiliated the one homosexual actor by making him play his part like a minstrel show," wrote @Markitan8dude in response to Messing's post.

"I'm no Trump "fan," but this is beyond a douche move," shared @RickyAcker on McCormack's post.

"Boy that tolerance and inclusivity sure went out the window, huh?" remarked @SaraGonzalesTX to the actress' request to names.

"He's the guy that culturally appropriated the gay culture for profit but now wants to dictate the actions and beliefs of others," expressed @TrevieDee to the actor.

Will & Grace stars Debra Messing, and Eric McCormack have come under fire for demanding a list of people who are attending a Trump fundraiser in Hollywood. They have both been extremely vocal regarding their dislike of the current presidential administration.

Critics are now accusing the famous TV stars of modern-day McCarthyism. They are also taking issue with them making such a demand by saying if it had been a different president the request would never have been made.

It is a hot button topic for sure. What do you think of Messing and McCormack's demand a list of attendees at Trump's fundraiser is made public?

    Wow! I'm the biggest Will & Grace fan. I've seen every episode at least 20 times. I cannot stand Donald Trump! However, I was shocked when I read Debra's and Eric's tweets (especially Eric's!). These are educated people. What were they thinking?! I'm old enough to remember the Hollywood Blacklist. It was a horrible horrible time. Surely they're familiar with that shameful history. This is all cringe-worthy. I bet Megan and Sean are thanking their lucky stars they didn't co-sign that crap.

    You people have no morals it is a free country we can vote the way we want President Trump has done a great job you fail to acknowledge that. now you want to ruin other people's lives just because they have a preference of who they want to vote for. You know this life is not the end we all have to answer for what we do I will never watch any shows with Will and Grace people in it again

    In fact it's no one business who I'm supporting it's my business nobody really needs to know. And if the celebrities don't want to reveal who they are voting for or who they are supporting it's nobody business.

    Actually @ BOSSMAN..THE thing I feel you might be missing is celebrities are just people..and they DO have a right to privacy just.like everyone else..I (opinion) dont think anyone should have to divulge anything they dont want to..its their choice, their decision to state publicly who they endorse or.not..why should they have to, honestly? For contributions? Then its.not really on a level playing field.anymore..then politics.are involved & it.becomes about money for information..blah blah blah ...but NO WORRIES..ALOT f celebrities are so vain they have no problem stating who they endorse because they feel like their opinions are the RIGHT opinions and everyone else who feels different is wrong or SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG WITH THEM...alot of them seem to forget it is America & EVERYONE IS ALLOWED TO HAVE THEIR OWN OPINION AND IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN IT'S WRONG...JUST MY OPINION! 👍

    Amazing the intolerance. Sad that the right to free speech that the left has championed over the years is the one thing they beat down. I guess it is okay to have a thought about any subject as long as it conforms to their's. People have a right to hear all sides of opinions, and use their own intellect to make their own decisions. That's what the founding fathers had envisioned with their thoughts on liberty. I find disconcerting that the "liberals " jump to so many extreme conclusions because someone has their own thoughts. I keep hearing comparisons to the Nazi party, but are there true concentration camps out there? Border detention centers are definitely not. Nobody is being rounded up for forced labor or death camps. People are not disappearing in the night. Take it easy on the rhetoric, or those us us who are tired of this crap will re-elect Trump again.

    No right to privacy or to work in Hollywood unless you vote and support whom ever they say you should. And they accuse the right of supremacy.

    This is why I’m voting Trump in 2020. The left has become unbelievably intolerant to anyone who does not agree with them. This is a free country- I might not like everything conservatives stand for- but they stand for my right to like it or not. It’s called freedom, and it’s what makes America different from other countries. We need more free speech- not less. The left is spiraling into a very, scary place.

    You’re right, it’s America, so every celebrity race baiter and every celebrity leftist communist, and every celebrity liberal hater should have their daily life schedule posted too, I mean its only fair.

    Will and Grace are(actors names) citizens like you and I. We ALL have the right to know who supports whom so we can spend our money accordingly if we chose. It's called America. It should be posted daily.
