Bette Midler Apologizes for Insensitive Caitlyn Jenner Joke

Bette Midler has issued an apology for her tweet about Caitlyn Jenner that many people found to be insensitive.

The legendary entertainer has since-deleted a tweet that said, “Now that I Am Cait has been cancelled, will she go back to being Bruce? Will Kris take him back? Do I smell a re-wedding?!”

Bette was accused of being transphobic for her tweet, in which she misgendered Caitlyn.

“Dear friends @HRC, whom I have always supported. Sorry last tweet offended. An idle musing. I seem to have misread the temper of the times,” she wrote in an apology.

    Bette had nothing to apologize for. She was snarking at the Kartrashjennerians. Since when did they become untouchable?

    Agreed. Cailtlyn is probably one of the most sexist and homophobic celebrities out there.

    Its so crazy that social media products like Twitter and Instagram and Facebook allow people to have a voice. But these services are filled with people who don’t want to hear anyone actually speak.
