Actress Debra Messing has said that she “stands” with actress Alyssa Milano in refusing to participate in the Women’s March over their leaders’ warmth toward anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

Milano told The Advocate on Oct. 30 that  she wouldn’t participate in the Women’s March because “none of them have come forward against him [Farrakhan] at this point.”

On Nov. 8, Messing quote tweeted The Advocate story about Milano and wrote, “I stand with you @Alyssa_Milano.”

The Women’s March issued the following statement on Nov. 8:

The Zioness Movement said in a statement, “Zioness rejects the divisive examples of Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory and others who claim to be ‘leaders’ of women, while they continue to support anti-Semitic, homophobic figures like Farrakhan and make consistent efforts to demonize the Jewish community in progressive spaces. We refuse to be intimidated by their attempts to exclude progressive Zionists from spaces like the Women’s March.”
