Actress Kirstie Alley broke her silence on Debra Messing and Eric McCormack’s push to blacklist those who attend President Trump’s Beverly Hills fundraiser in mid-September.
In response to news of the fundraiser, McCormack tweeted, “Hey, kindly report on everyone attending this event so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with. Thx.”
While soon after, Messing issued her support of a list as she said in a tweet,“Please print a list of all attendees please. The public has a right to know.”
As a result, the pair of actors faced instant backlash that led to McCormack walking back his statement and saying that he was “misinterpreted.”
While Messing, on the other hand, doubled down and said, “I couldn’t of said it better.” And she got the approval from other celebs, including The View’s host Joy Behar, despite Whoopi Goldberg’s condemnation of the blacklist idea.
On Friday evening, Kirstie Alley came forward and slammed the push for a Trump fundraiser blacklist as she issued a defiant statement. See Below
Alley said in a tweet, “I refuse to be part of the Hollywood asshats who can’t see that “NOT working with Republicans” is as stupid and NASTY as ‘REFUSING to do business with gay people.'”
“STOP ACTING above the FRAY ya damn hypocrites…WE are the same species! let’s help each OTHER ya damn yahoos,” she concluded. See Below
