Bette Midler Backs Down – Apologizes For Mocking Melania Trump’s Accent

Actress and singer Bette Midler has finally backed down and apologized after receiving a ton of backlash for mocking the accent of First Lady Melania Trump during her speech at the Republican National Convention earlier this week.

Bette Midler’s Racist Attacks On Melania Trump

Midler took to Twitter during Melania’s speech to brand her as an “illegal alien,” adding, “Oh, God. She still can’t speak English.”

Not stopping there, Midler compared Melania to a mail-order bride.

“I’m surprised Trump wants to destroy the #PostOffice. He got all his wives from it,” she said.

Midler Hit With Backlash

Midler was accused of racism and xenophobia for her tweets, with her post about Melania’s English-speaking abilities landing her in particularly hot water.

“Oh, God. Bette Midler’s a racist,” tweeted British television personality Piers Morgan.

Many others blasted Midler for this as well.

“There is no one as racist and xenophobic as the tolerant left. To think that when I was growing up in Africa I fiercely admired you and many others who now are showing how low and hateful they can be. I’m ashamed for you,” one social media user said.

“She speaks 6 languages, English is one of them. How about you?” another person tweeted, with a third writing, “Oh hey look everyone…a washed up, dumpy old lady racist.”

“As a Mexican immigrant I am very offended at your prejudice!” someone else commented. “My hard working parents with accents love and value this country! We put everything into what we do and do not expect to be treated unfairly because we may not sound like you ! Practice what you preach!”

Midler Fires Back

At first, Midler refused to back down in the face of the backlash.

“Why not? Just giving them a taste of their own immigrant bashing medicine,” she tweeted. “I guess they’re not keen.”

Midler Apologizes

Hours later, however, Midler was singing a very different tune.

“Well, all hell has broken loose because I said Melania ‘still can’t speak English’ last night,” she tweeted on Wednesday afternoon. “I was wrong to make fun of her accent. America is made up people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always.”

There’s nothing like seeing a racist, liberal hypocrite get put in her place!

  • The apology falls on deaf ears...We know how she thinks now. Her apology just trys to cover her racist comment up. Too much , too little , too late. Racism is everywhere. Always has been, always will be. Dont kid yourself. Slavery didnt start with the blacks either. Many BC years had jews building the pyramids, etc, etc, etc....And the blacks now shouldnt get paid for what happened to their relatives. They have got way better from those days and now that generation is gone basically.Just get on with it and live your life. Do something about the trouble makers that are making your race look terrible. Peace out. All lives matter , especially the unborn of all races.

  • The apology was needed, but still, we all know how Bette Midler really feels, because she knowingly, and freely chose, to let the "cat" out of the bag, showing her TDS, which is just this side of lunacy. Plus, is the apology sincere, or is Midler just doing a quick "CYA"?....

  • Her "apology" is worth exactly what her first vulgar racist statement was of NO VALUE. Nothing like an old washed up hag searching for some publicity with her demented crap.

  • Bette Medler is a RACIST, RACIST--old fart. That's her personality.
    From now on --let's call her RACIST BETTE!!

  • Frankly, her "apology" does not sound like an apology, much less a sincere/repentful one. She does not mean one word, in her so-called attempt, but sounds like a stubborn, resentful, hardheaded child for even "hinting" an apology!!! She still managed to get her "digs" in by reiterating what she had said, which is what she wanted to do, and her "real" intent!! Her last "two-mins of fame, Ladies and Gentlemen!!!

    MOST APPLICABLE to Midler and like-Hollywood cronies;
    (from Macbeth, spoken by Macbeth)

    Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, "a poor player,"
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    "Signifying nothing."


  • She is NOT one tiny bit sorry for her tweets. What she IS sorry for is the amount of backlash she's receiving. Backlash she most certainly deserves.

  • Apology NOT ACCEPTED .

    Liberals only apologize when they're forced to , make no mistake she's the same vile hateful woman she's always been and will do the same again, that's a fact.
