Far-left actress Debra Messing just keeps stepping in it. Her latest boneheaded blunder that’s going to leave a mark on her portfolio is a trending Twitter hashtag, “Racist Debra Messing” in response to her retweet of an offensive Alabama church sign that read: “A black vote or Trump is mental illness.”

Just a day earlier, she had stupidly called for Hollywood to blacklist conservatives, causing even her liberal peers to berate her for her thoughtless desire to return to the dark days of McCarthyism in Tinseltown.

When you’re hot, you’re hot.


Her retweet and praise for a ‘black vote’ sign deemed racist by many was reportedly taken from a church in Texas and quickly drove a number of people to reply in anger before and after she deleted it.

The man himself, President Trump, got in on the action and retweeted Williams’ post that carried the hashtag (mind you, the tag was already trending):

In a strange, attempted “apology,” Messing, in fact, tried to redirect blame to “Trump’s GOP.” She wrote: “I apologized for liking that church sign. I said I regret it. I shud [sic] have thought before recklessly suppprting. You won’t accept this but black people are targeted by Trump’s GOP for voter supression. Charlottesville was about Trump supporters hating POC and Jews.”

She continued on in a series of tweets, drifting into the blacklisting controversy …

Candace Owens tweeted a reply to the Messing “apology”: “Please stop telling black people what we are ‘targeted by’ to satisfy your ‘white savior’ complex. The fact that you can’t accept that black people support Trump is evidence that you hold a racist viewpoint of black Americans as a monolith, proprietary to the Democrat Party.”

Think she’ll learn? It might take few more hideous P.R. disasters, but at the very least, we can hope someone soon will convince Messing to shut down her Twitter account.
