American singer Bette Midler landed in hot water after she tweeted a risqué image of US First Lady Melania Trump and a snarky caption.
Midler’s tweet, captioned “The dry cleaning bill for the upholstery on Air Force One must be insane”, features a picture of Melania from her 2000 British GQ photoshoot aboard Trump’s Boeing 727, with hashtag #FLOTITS (sic!).
Midler’s jab at the president’s wife, however, apparently did not sit well with some Twitter users who were quick to give the singer a piece of their mind.
So juvenile @BetteMidler, and so disappointing. She was earning a living, like a lot women, and men, do. Not to mention, that your comment was foul and disgusting.— 🦘🇦🇺vegemite kid🇦🇺🦘 (@goldcoastdebb) 17 ноября 2018 г.
In all fairness this Tweet tells us more about Bette Midler herself than Melania. Bette a bully herself.— Christopher H (@Christo92944495) 17 ноября 2018 г.
Another goofy actress bites the dust. So sad Bette, I adored you. Not anymore.— Kma1960 (@kma1960) 17 ноября 2018 г.
Others however praised Midler for her stance and her sense of humor.
My sister just called me--she doesn't use Twitter--and asked me to tell you she loves you very much.— JayneLibraryRef (@bean054) 17 ноября 2018 г.
This is a @FLOTUS that deserves any respect? Just a gold digger, nude model, and home wrecker. Don't tell me how intelligent she is. Smart enough to grab a misogynist as a husband. Not a role model. @ArcofHope pic.twitter.com/KVukjIGdrN— Bill (@bobebill) 17 ноября 2018 г.
Hilarious! #FLOTITS is an instant classic. If you got it, flaunt it! But Melania, people can and WILL mention it if you make a spectacle of yourself. Bette is a National Treasure. All the faux outrage seems disingenuous! Clutch the pearls!!— David Roberson (@H077y300d) 17 ноября 2018 г.
BTW, #Cher wore it better, and FIRST!
