Backlash After Bette Midler Calls Black Trump Supporters Paid “Blackground”

Actress Bette Midler suffered a intense backlash on Twitter after she called Black Trump supporters “blackground.”

Without any evidence, Midler also suggested the men were paid.

Trump supporters responded to Midler, calling her attack disgraceful and racist.

That’s a very racist thing to say.

I knew it was just a matter of time before Bette shows her true colors. She’s a typical white racist pretending to be black people’s best friend until she slipped up..

Wow, Bette! That’s some racist crap right there. I guess an old, white woman like yourself gets to decide what and how black people should believe and vote.

Also, you’re a racist.

Also, you’re a racist.

Bette Midler is facing backlash after suggesting that President Donald Trump paid African American supporters to add “blackground” to his rally.

The outspoken Trump critic took to Twitter Wednesday to share a photo of a group of black men standing in the crowd behind Trump during one of his reelection rallies.

“Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did he pay them to be ‘blackground’?” Midler, 73, tweeted to her 1.7 million followers. 

Her remark was instantly slammed as “racist” and “really sick.”

“Wow, Bette! That’s some racist crap right there. I guess an old, white woman like yourself gets to decide what and how black people should believe and vote,” @staceybeast tweeted, while @Sammurica wrote: “People of different races are allowed to support whoever they want. Shocking, I know.”
