Over the weekend, Twitter discovered that "Smash" star Katharine McPhee is a registered Republican who is actively donating to the GOP. To make matters worse, Jezebel's Harron Walker confirmed the "American Idol" contestant is indeed a registered Republican and donated a total of $500 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee in June and July.

"Thankfully, I was able to independently verify the information contained in that tweet on Sunday through the Federal Election Commission's online database of individual contributions. According to FEC public records, a self-employed singer named Katharine McPhee who lives in Los Angeles donated a total of $500 to the NRSC earlier this year," Walker writes.

Screenshots of the search show a Katharine McPhee who gave the donations to the GOP resides in Los Angeles and lists themselves as a self-employed singer. Of course, there still could be a chance this isn't the McPhee.

"Fans of McPhee would probably be crushed to learn that she supports the more overtly and consistently racist, homophobic, misogynistic, imperialist, and transphobic of the United States' two major political parties—particularly all of the gay fans that she has actively courted for years now on social media, calling them '
'my gay boys' and doing her best to stay fluent in the online gay parlance du jour, or at least hiring someone who is," Walker goes on to write, pointing out to McPhee's use of queer slang and memes on social media.

Back in 2018, McPhee garnered Gay Twitter attention when she shouted out her "gay boys" in a video prior to her Broadway debut for the musical "Waitress."
