Bette Midler clowned for asking Beyoncé and her fans to save America from a 2nd Trump presidency

Bette Midler, Beyoncé

Bette Midler took to Twitter to appeal to the Beyhive to cape up and help deliver a win in next year’s presidential election, “#Beyoncé has 133 million Instagram followers. More than double the people who voted for Trump. Wouldn’t it be amazing if the #BeyHive mobilized to defeat him? I also wouldn’t mind if a regular bee hive fucked his shit up.”

Black Twitter quickly took the opportunity to remind Midler that White women jumped out the window to vote for Trump during the last election. And respectably (jk) asked her to go beg Taylor Swift and Katie Perry fans for their votes.

White Twitter also piled on:

This isn’t the first time Medler’s stepped in it. Her tweet was most likely an innocent cry to the most popular pop artist in the world. But her past transgressions didn’t help.

Though it makes the internet roasting that much sweeter, 53% of White women did not vote for Donald Trump in 2016. While the majority of White women did vote for Trump, according to Pew Research’s exit poll 47% of White women voted for Trump, and 45% voted for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. Meanwhile, 98% of Black women voted for Hillary Clinton.
