Debra Messing says she “regrets going on” Megyn Kelly’s NBC morning show following Kelly’s strange remarks to a gay Will & Grace superfan.
After welcoming the fan up to the set, she asked him, “Is it true that you became a lawyer — and you became gay — because of Will?”
Replied Turner: “I look at Will Truman, I’m like, ‘He has it made’: lawyer, best apartment in New York City, and gay? Come on, trifecta.”
After telling Turner that he was winning two free tickets to a taping in L.A., she assured him, “I don’t know about the lawyer thing, but I think the Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is gonna work out great.”
Messing told a follower on Instagram Tuesday that she didn’t know she would be on Kelly’s show: “Honestly I didn’t know it was MK until that morning. The itinerary just said Today Show appearance. Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments.”
