Bette Gets Dragged For Me­la­nia Tweet

People (South Africa) - - Contents -

SEV­ENTY-TWO-YEAR-OLD ac­tress and singer who is an out­spo­ken critic of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and his fam­ily – posted an­other con­tro­ver­sial mes­sage on so­cial me­dia re­cently, this one aimed at First Lady Me­la­nia Trump. Mi­dler shared a photo of the former model from a 2000

Bri­tish GQ shoot in which she posed in the cock­pit of then-boyfriend Don­ald Trump’s jet wear­ing a skimpy fu­tur­is­tic getup. The Do You

Want To Dance singer made a joke about the dry clean­ing bill for Air Force One, and added the hash­tag ‘#FLOTITS’. Re­ac­tion to the tweet was swift and, at times, bru­tal. It wasn’t just fans of FLOTUS that put Bette

on blast, but also her own fol­low­ers. “I love you and loathe that whole fam­ily but no. Just no. Pick apart her dan­ger­ous ac­tions, not her body/ use thereof. Women de­serve bet­ter than this,” wrote one user. An­other said, “To think that I ad­mired you for so many years for be­ing so funny, ir­rev­er­ent and em­brac­ing hu­mankind. You’ve turned into a wretched old woman – it’s re­ally too bad.” Maybe it’s time for The Di­vine Miss M to put a lit­tle… dis­tance…be­tween her­self and Twit­ter for a spell?
