In a seriously awkward live TV moment, the Will & Grace actress outed the platform for unequal pay. "We stand with her", the Will & Grace star said, apparently referring to the network's dust-up with former and longtime host Catt Sadler who left E!

"Time is up and we want diversity and we want intersectional gender parity", Messing said.

In a statement to People on Sunday, Sadler said, "I am immensely grateful for the outpouring of support today".

"I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn't believe in paying their female co-hosts the same as their male co-hosts".

Catt walked out of her long-standing role on the E! channel after learning she was not paid the same as her co-host Jason Kennedy.

Sadler walked away from E! after almost 12 years upon learning that co-host Jason Kennedy, who shared essentially the same duties, "wasn't just making a little bit more than me, but was making double my salary and has been for several years".

"I'm from IN, born and raised, and I had my sights set on E! and I've seen the world".

Sadler recently announced she would leave E!

Messing then turned on Rancic's employer, the E! network and presenter of the award show's red carpet coverage.

Like the rest of Hollywood, Debra opted for an all black outfit following the Harvey Weinstein scandal which rocked Tinsel Town to the core.

Messing's moment on the red carpet is already generating plenty of reactions, and we give her all the credit in the world for being bold enough to go there.

News that she's wearing black "to thank and honor all of the fearless whistleblowers who came forward and shared their stories of harassment and assault and discrimination".
