Angry Bette Midler She’s angry that Twitter removed her blue verification check, and she’s taking it out on Twitter.
An irate Bette Midler took to Twitter on Thursday, calling Elon Musk names like “pathetic douche” and “worm.” She also poked fun at Thursday’s SpaceX rocket launch, which ended in an explosion seconds after liftoff.
For not paying Twitter Blue, which costs at least $8 a month, many famous people, media outlets, and political figures had their blue verification checks removed this week, much to her chagrin.
“Elon canceled my blue check! I can’t prove it! The nerve of this worm to de-certify me after all these years, thousands of tweets, and free material! Middleton whimpered.
Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and Jennifer Lopez have all lost their Twitter blue check status as well. Even after Musk restored him, former President Donald Trump’s authenticity was questioned again.
Apparently, Midler isn’t one of the few celebs whose Twitter fees Musk has supposedly covered so they may maintain their blue check status. Author Stephen King is among them, as are athletes LeBron James and William Shatner.
On Twitter, Bette Midler has called for the bodily harm of conservative politicians including Donald Trump and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).
As 2020 rolled around, she reportedly ordered White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to “go fuck yourself” and urged Vice President Joe Biden to kick President Donald Trump “in the nuts.”
Once again, she defended violent behavior by praising the neighbor who attacked Senator Paul, resulting in several fractured ribs.
