issued a homophobic insult at President Trump, suggesting he would
become a popular boyfriend among prison inmates.
In a tweet last week, Messing responded to a note from World Health
Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus praising German
Chancellor Angela Merkel for urging Germans to stay home amid the
AMERICA. THIS is a LEADER, she exclaimed.
[Donald Trump], you are weak, scared, stupid, inept, negligent,
vindictive, narcissistic, criminal, she added. I hope you live a long
life in prison where you become the most popular boyfriend to the all
Some of Messings followers criticized her for the homophobic insult.
Maybe rethink this homophobic undertoned tweet? said one Twitter
Love you Deb but please dont bring gay sex into the equation as
something derogatory, said another user.
I happen to be gay you suck in a bad way, said another.
Nice tolerance display, especially towards the gay community, said
Wow, youre quite the #homophobe. You just put a lot of gay youth at
risk. Thanks for that, said another.
In September of last year, Messing supported her Will & Grace co-star
Eric McCormack when he ignited a firestorm on Twitter by publicly
stating that he would no longer work with Trump supporters, and asking
to be told who would be in attendance at a fundraiser for the president
in Beverly Hills.
Hey, [THR], kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the
rest of us can be clear about who we dont wanna work with. Thx,
Shortly thereafter, Messing joined in on the Trump supporter hate-fest
when she also demanded to know the names of those in attendance at the
fundraiser, effectively supporting a blacklist against people who think
differently from her. Please print a list of all attendees please. The

critics of misinterpreting them.

has been misinterpreted in a very upsetting way. I absolutely do not
support blacklists or discrimination of any kid, as anyone who knows me
would attest. Id simply like to understand where Trumps 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, wrote McCormack on Instagram.
Messing later tweeted her co-stars message alongside the caption, I
couldnt have said it better.
In July of this year, Messing once again found herself at the center of
controversy when she suggested that rapper Kanye West was disgusting
for allegedly trying to take black votes away from Joe Biden in his
The comment sparked the ire of Nina Turner, national co-chair of
socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) presidential campaign.
You just cant stop dipping can you [Debra Messing]? Your connotation
is racist, said Turner. 1. Black voters are not owned by anyone. Our
vote should be earned every election cycle. 2. We can think for
ourselves & dont need your help. 3. Sometimes its best to stay out of

Joe Biden went from stealing someones wife, to stealing speeches, to
stealing money, to stealing an election.
He has really grown as a politician.
