Debra Messing Calls Out Blake Shelton’s Trump Comments on Twitter, Apologizes
Talk about a "Messing-y" situation.
In his interview, "Nashville's clown prince" (Billboard's words, not ours) told the magazine that while he wouldn't "have the political conversation...about Trump or about Hillary Clinton," he admitted that he is impressed by the GOP candidate's perceived candor.
"Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t always have to be so afraid," he explained, adding, "A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don't like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who's crazy here?"
Heated over reading Shelton's revelation, Messing—a longtime Clinton supporter—lashed out on Twitter, directing a message to The Voice coach's girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.
"Omg. How? @gwenstefani please talk to your man to not vote for the person who will STRIP you of your rights," the actress wrote in an impassioned, since-deleted tweet according to Entertainment Weekly.
While Stefani did not get involved in the Twitter spat, Shelton quickly responded to Messing's tweet, explaining that he hadn't endorsed "ANYBODY" for president and that he had no plans to do so.
"I don't do that s---," he tweeted. "My comment about 'wish there was another option but there's not' is across the board...period."
The actress subsequently backed down, offering up a public apology to both the country star and pop star, telling them that her "passions got the better of [her]" and that she regretted commenting on the matter.
Thankfully, Shelton was quick to accept Messing's apology, putting their could-have-been feud to bed early.
