Bette Midler Gets Dragged

It’s October, which means it’s a chance for us to remember Bette Midler ever lived because there are reruns of “Hocus Pocus” all over TV. Well, Bette tried to get deep on us with a handful of tweets she had to go ahead and delete. Here’s what she said:

“The too brief investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh infuriated me. Angrily I tweeted w/o thinking my choice of words would be enraging to black women who doubly suffer, both by being women and by being black. I am an ally and stand with you; always have. And I apologize.”

Want a Snapple fact? Yoko Ono STOLE that quote from Zora Neale Hurston and DELETED the fact that Zora was talking about BLACK women. Please, white women. Seek help. It’s too late for Bette because she got DRAGGEDDDDDDDD for it. Deservedly so. Take a look…
