"The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday ripped actress Debra Messing for suggesting donors to a fundraiser for President Donald Trump be publicly identified, saying the move amounted to a "blacklist."

The "Will & Grace" co-star tweeted the suggestion to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday along with a post announcing an upcoming Trump fundraiser at in Beverly Hills during Emmys week.

"The public has a right to know," Messing said.

However, Goldberg called Messing's suggestion publicly dangerous.

"Listen, the last time people did this, people ended up killing themselves," Goldberg said on Tuesday's show.

"This is not a good idea, OK?" she added. "Your idea of who you don't want to work with is your personal business.

"Do not encourage people to print out lists because the next list that comes out, your name will be on and then people will be coming after you."

Goldberg continued: "We had something called a blacklist and a lot of really good people were accused of stuff. Nobody cared whether it was true or not. They were accused. And they lost their right to work.

"In this country, people can vote for who they want to," she added. "That is one of the great rights of this country."

President Trump bashed Messing for her post Sunday — and at least one of the president's visible African-American supporters, Dr. Darrell Scott, senior pastor and co-founder of the New Spirit Revival Center in Ohio, clapped back at the actress Tuesday.

"Put my name on the list," Scott declared. "Better yet … come see me."
