Oh No Ma'am! Bette Midler Says 'Women are the N-Word of the World'

Bette Midler tried to make a point in the fight for gender equality and misfired — horribly.

via TMZ:

Bette tweeted Thursday — in the midst of protests in D.C. by women who strongly oppose the Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh — “Women, are the n-word of the world.”

She added to her point by saying women are … “Raped, beaten, enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals; denied education and inheritance; enduring the pain and danger of childbirth and life IN SILENCE for THOUSANDS of years.”

Midler ends her tweet by saying women “are the most disrespected creatures on earth.”

In 2 hours, her tweet has elicited almost 7 thousand replies, many of which are blasting her for minimizing racism while at the same time hurting the feminist movement. 

Others are pissed that Midler, a rich white woman, is comparing the plight of women to the history of mistreatment of black people.

We hope Bette issues a clarification and an apology rather quickly [apology below] — it’s October and we already planned on watching ‘Hocus Pocus’ at least twice before Halloween. We can’t have Bette out here getting canceled.
