Oops! Bette Midler Says ‘Women Are The N-Word Of The World’

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.”

“Women, are the n-word of the world.” 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 They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.

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.
