Bette Midler Sorry About Her Women, N-Word Tweet

Bette Midler Sorry About Her Women, N-Word Tweet

An intersectionality fight broke out on Thursday night when vocal Trump-hating actress Bette Midler lost her mind over the likely confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, posting that women are the "n-words of the world".

"'Women, are the n-word of the world, '" Midler wrote in a now-deleted tweet. The remark was also slammed for being racially insensitive. Whatever inspired her seems to have been lost to history, but it's impossible not to hear a late-'60s echo of the great black woman writer Zora Neale Hurston. Women have dealt w/oppression but WOC, specifically Black women have dealt with worse situations than white women. "It's our job to listen and.do better". Women are highly disrespected - but don't displace the atrocities that were done to black people by using that quote. "It reduces all humanity when used".

Bette Midler is sorry after calling women the "N-word of the world". "And pay with their lives if they seek freedom from tyranny". - Bi-furious Jay (@jaylikewhoa) October 5, 2018Black folks loved you in Hocus Pocus too and this is how you do us smh pic.twitter.com/n1bcaSL6Lt- X (@XLNB) October 5, 2018So many quotes to choose from. She was berated in thousands of replies, where many said she was minimizing racism and feminism at the same time. "The shock value is in NO WAY worth the harm to Black people", one Twitter user wrote in response.

On one hand, Chelsea played very well and had some excellent performers - notably David Luiz and Mateo Kovacic. Vidi now sits third in Hungary's top flight and fell to BATE Borisov 2-0 at home in their group opener.

"The too brief investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh infuriated me", she tweeted after deleting the controversial comments.

I could write paragraphs upon paragraphs about the offensiveness of referencing this quote, not to mention Midler's statement as a whole, which essentially erased black women while using the history of black pain and the very bad legacy of the N-word as props.
