John O'Hurley, perhaps best known for his role as J. Peterman on "Seinfeld," says that "Will & Grace" stars Eric McCormack and Debra Messing should be ashamed of themselves for appearing to advocate for the doxxing and blacklisting of Hollywood Trump supporters.

What's a brief history here?

On Sunday, The Hollywood Reporter published a news item revealing that President Donald Trump is set to appear at a Beverly Hills, California, event hosted by top Republican National Committee leadership. Tickets for the Sept. 17 event are going for as much as $100,000.

McCormack responded to the news by requesting the outlet to publish names of those in the entertainment business who dared attend the event.

He wrote, "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."

Messing chimed in with agreement, writing, "Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know."

So what did O'Hurley say?

O'Hurley addressed the "Will & Grace" stars' remarks during a Labor Day broadcast of Fox News' "America's News Headquarters."

In talks about liberalism and Hollywood, O'Hurley said that he respects both parties, but is "embarrassed" for McCormack and Messing.

"Let me just say that I'm embarrassed for both of them," he said. "And I'll say this because I know them both and I've worked with Debra before. They're both smart people and they do wonderful work.

"But they're pushing a case that falls apart from the sheer weight of its lunacy, as though the Hollywood community needs to be purged of this social and intellectual hygiene problem called 'conservative thinking," he laughed. "It underscores the fact that we aren't receptive to diversity of thought, which is the exact opposite of what you feel the liberal way would be. I find that obscene."
