The year 2018 is coming in hot. Debra Messing praises her 13-year-old son for refusing to stand during the anthem and was destroyed by a wounded vet's mom as a result.
Per Daily Wire:
Remember that whole protest thing from last year? You know, when players of the National Football League would take a knee during the National Anthem to stand up against how they make millions of dollars a year for playing football three hours a week (it was way back in 2017, so we're not sure what they were protesting).
Anyhoo, Debra Messing, who plays Grace on "Will & Grace," a rebooted show from the turn of the century, finally decided to weigh in on the NFL protest (which is a horrible shame because America could have been debating her staunch stance over the Christmas holidays if she had just spoken up sooner).
Messing got on Instagram last Wednesday to support her 13-year-old son after he asked if he could protest the National Anthem at the New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden.
The post, featuring a photo of the boy holding his hand over his heart while seated, read:
“’Please stand for the Star Spangled Banner.’
Son: ‘Mom, I want to sit down in protest. Can we do that?’
Me: ‘Yes, honey. We can do that.’
“Who’s crying? I’m not crying. #BLM (Black Lives Matter)."
The post has since been deleted.
Here is the original post:
Lisa Smith, who happens to be a proud mother of a sounded solider, saw her post on Tuesday. Smith completely annihilated Messing.
.@DebraMessing: You're proud your son boycotted our Anthem?
I'm proud of MY son. You know why? HE can't kneel or walk on his own. HE was wounded fighting for the very freedom that YOU spit on, yet he has NO regrets! He's a Patriot & you're a loser!https://t.co/vAesThhwp0

Ouch. That's going to leave a mark.
