At the same time, online haters began spamming Messing's Instagram for answers.

"But why did you guys do the Megyn Kelly show?" asked a user in the comments section of the actress' page.

"Honestly I didn't know it was MK until that morning," responded Messing. "The itinerary just said Today Show appearance. Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments."

The comment fans believe Messing, 49, is referring to is Kelly's attempted joke about Will & Grace's gay influence.
