Eric McCormack and Debra Messing, star actors on the hit sitcom "Will and Grace," ignited backlash after advocating for the outing and blacklisting of Beverly Hills Trump supporters.

"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," McCormack tweeted.
"Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know," Messing said.
