Whoopi Goldberg Slams Debra Messing For Requesting Names of Trump Fundraiser Attendees | THR News

”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 and until next time for The Hollywood Reporter News I’m Neha Joy.

  • I agree with Whoopi on this one. You will end up on that list one day. I don't agree with doing things like that and I don't agree with doxxing people either.

  • I'm not a fan of Whoopi but with her revoke to Debra Messing is right on the spot. Thank you Whoopi for being sensible

  • I remember when people of the LDS faith who gave money so that prop 8 wouldn't pass for same sex marriage that activists of gay community got names off of internet for those who gave money in that faith and went to their homes and work to harass them, it was just awful for these people. Traditional marriage is why the US is who they are, and there are many reasons why same sex marriages if going to change our society for the bad.

  • This only makes me want to vote Trump more. The left wants to take away ALL your freedoms
    The right to speech, right to vote, your guns. How does anybody support their insanity

  • Thank you Whoopie for being an American. Debra is a has been who is trying to get attention. If she wants to be relevant in Hollywood she should at least lose 30# before trying to push her shit. Sorry, I did not make the rules in Hollywood– I just recognize that Hollywood has rules. Debra's show was cancelled because the public found it boring as he… She needs to look in the mirror and take responsibility for that. Her "beauty" is not timeless like other Hollywood stars and combined with the thick waist and cancelled show, she needs to shut up. Hollywood hates people over 35 who have packed on 30. I am like most intelligent Americans and am sick of Hollywood trying to set the flawed narrative for our country. Debra is not pretty, thin or talented enough to be able to get another 15 minutes of fame trying to out-woke everyone. This is the gal who spends time tweeting images of pornographic cupcakes after all. I am curious how many of her millions she donates to charity. I would guess zero.

  • Even far left Whoopie is now recognizing that the left has gone too far. Whoopie is a smart woman so I am not surprised that she has reached her limit. She is also a person of integrity who is passionate in her beliefs. Good for her. I have new respect for her. She needs to now disengage from the view and the some of the stupidity of the other women on that show. I always knew Whoopie was very intelligent so I am glad she spoke up today for what is right.
