”Do not encourage people to print out lists, because the next list that comes out, your name will be on, and then people will be coming after you.” Whoopi Goldberg is calling out Debra Messing for demanding a list of names of those attending Donald Trump’s Beverly Hills Fundraiser. It all started when ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ provided details in an Aug. 29 story of a big-ticket fundraiser President Trump was holding on Sept. 17 in Beverly Hills as part of his reelection campaign. The news boiled over into the holiday weekend stirring up a heated Twitter exchange between Trump and Debra Messing. The actress called on ‘THR’ to “print a list of all attendees please,”adding “the public has a right to know.” Her longtime co-star Eric McCormack even chimes in with a similar sentiment tweeting, “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.” Trump was quick to respond with a jab at the actress writing, “I have not forgotten that when it was announced that I was going to do The Apprentice, and when it then became a big hit, helping NBC’s failed lineup greatly, @DebraMessing came up to me at an Upfront & profusely thanked me, even calling me ‘Sir.’ How times have changed.” Then on Tuesday, the situation spilled over onto ABC’s ‘The View’ where host Whoopi Goldberg weighed in on the whole affair, taking aim at Messing and McCormack for making such a request in the first place. ”Why not?” ”Last time people did this, people ended up killing themselves … We had something called ‘the black list,’ and a lot of really good people were accused of stuff. Nobody cared whether it was true or not, they all were accused.” Goldberg was of course referencing to the infamous Hollywood blacklist which was an entertainment industry blacklist put into effect during the early part of the Cold War by Hollywood studios that inhibited certain individuals in the industry from gaining employment because of alleged communist ties. The host continued saying, ‘View’ co-host Joy Behar agreed that individual names should not be exposed but the same shouldn’t be said for corporations saying, McCormack took to Instagram on Tuesday to clarify his original statement saying, ”I absolutely do not support blacklists or discrimination of any kind… I’d simply like to understand where Trump’s major donations are coming from, which is a matter of public record. I am holding myself responsible for making educated and informed decisions that I can morally and ethically stand by and to do that, transparency is essential.” Messing also responded to the whole ordeal, screenshooting a picture of McCormack’s statement writing, “I couldn’t have said it better.” For more on this story, head to THR.com and until next time for The Hollywood Reporter News I’m Neha Joy.
