The anti-Semitic message that the Women’s March projects seems to finally be getting noticed in Hollywood. Earlier this week, Alyssa Milano told Advocate that because the organizers refuse to condemn Louis Farrakhan and distance themselves from him, that she will no longer support their cause.
Now, “Will & Grace” star Debra Messing is following in Milano’s footsteps, Tweeting “I stand with you @Alyssa_Milano.”

She’s getting a lot of grief and accusations of “whiteness” on Twitter.

So are you and @Alyssa_Milano going to start your own Women's March devoid of all racism, antisemitism, etc etc? In a country divided we showed women of all kinds could unite. Is there more to be done to teach tolerance? Yes. Walking away is the easy way out.

Why don't you talk to Linda and Tamika before you condemn them. They did not condemn you, Debra for not understanding the depth of racism in this country or Alyssa for not recognizing the early struggle of black women against racism and misogyny. Talk to them.

Wouldn't it be better to try to reach out to those people and start a dialog? It seems counterproductive to publicly refuse to join in and engage in dialog with others. This is like the Muslim blogger who refused Revlon's award because of Gal Gadot's nationality.

Messing is Jewish and extremely liberal but it’s good to finally see celebrities waking up and condemning the Women’s March for it’s extremist leaders running the organization. #WalkAway
