Bette Midler's bad, folks.
The legendary singer and actress Tweeted this week about the challenge women face in society (amidst debate over confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court because he may have committed sexual assault) when she likely went way too far.
In what sense?
What did people say about it?
And what did she say as an apology?
Who is Bette Midler?
Fair enough. We understand younger readers might not know, but she has been nominated for two Oscars and won several Grammys, Emmys and Golden Globes. She is an entertainment industry legend.
Okay. So What Did She Write?
Yes. She went there. We understand her frustration, but, as you might expect, using THIS reference and THIS comparion has not sat well with...anyone.
The Internet Responds...
Enough About John Lennon!
How Do We Put Out These Flames?
But She Did Apologize?
Sort of. Does this count?
That Was Not an Apology
This is Who She Should Have Quoted
