Kirstie Alley Slams Bette Midler for 'Racist, Degrading' Tweet

Bette Midler is coming under fire for a recent tweet.

The 73-year-old actress recently took to Twitter to share a photo from one of President Trump‘s rallies, and she made a joke about his black supporters.

“Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did he pay them to be in the ‘blackground’?” Bette wrote.

The following day, Kirstie Alley slammed Bette for her “joke.”

“This is one of the most racist, degrading ‘jokes’ I’ve seen on Twitter & that’s saying a lot. We get it Bette, you hate Trump & that’s your right but to imply Black men have to be PAID to celebrate their OWN political views is pure and REAL racism. And “BLACKGROUND”?? WTF??!!” Kirstie tweeted.

Bette has been a very outspoken critic of President Trump while Kirstie Alley once showed her support for the president back in 2016.
