JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) – Bette Midler has apologized after tweeting that Melania Trump âstill canât speak Englishâ during the first ladyâs speech at the RNC Tuesday evening.
It was one of several tweets Midler directed towards the Trumps, including that President Trump gets âall his wives fromâ the Post Office and that Melania is, âone lucky Slovenian! And after all that surgery, you hit a kind of horrible jackpot, chained to an colossal idiot.â
The singer, best known to many for her performance in the movie âHocus Pocus,â also accused Melania Trump of being an illegal alien.
#beBest is back! A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages. Get that illegal alien off the stage!
The tweets were immediately met with pushback, with some saying, âImagine saying this and thinking youâre a good personâ and âI guess this is a good example of how celebrities talk the talk but donât walk the walk.â
Midler attempted to stand by her comments Wednesday morning, saying that she was, âJust giving them a taste of their own immigrant bashing medicine,â adding, âI guess theyâre not keen.â
But after mounting pressure, Midler formally apologized. âI was wrong to make fun of her accent. America is made up [sic] people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always.â
Well, all hell has broken loose because I said Melania âstill canât speak Englishâ last night. 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.
