'Will & Grace' stars Eric McCormack and Debra Messing are reportedly facing criticism over their response to the news that there would be a Hollywood fundraiser for President Donald Trump.

It was revealed on Saturday, August 31, that the Beverly Hills fundraiser, organized by Trump Victory, is part of the president's re-election campaign and will be held on September 17, the same week as the Primetime Emmy Awards, according to Hollywood Reporter.

Shortly after the news broke, McCormack and Messing took to Twitter to subtly slam those who planned to attend the fundraiser. Messing, in a tweet, said: "Please print a list of all attendees, please. The public has a right to know." While McCormack wrote: "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."

Shortly after the actors posted the tweets, many Trump supporters swarmed their social media pages with comments, slamming them for putting celebrities who support Trump on notice.

A Twitter user @Markitan8dude, in response to Messing's tweet, wrote: "Said the woman who made her fame on a show that denied gay actors a chance to play the lead and then humiliated the one homosexual actor by making him play his part like a minstrel show."

While another user @RickyAcker commented on McCormack's post, saying: "I’m no Trump “fan,” but this is beyond a douche move." User @TrevieDee said: "He’s the guy that culturally appropriated the gay culture for profit but now wants to dictate the actions and beliefs of others."

"Boy that tolerance and inclusivity sure went out the window, huh?” remarked @SaraGonzalesTX in response to Messing's tweet.  

Both the actors have previously been very vocal about their dislike of the Trump administration. Critics have denounced the hostile attitude of numerous Hollywood stars towards the current administration and have accused them of McCarthyism.
