Bette Midler

Bette Midler found herself in some hot water over the weekend after sending a tweet about Caitlyn Jenner that many found to be "transphobic."

As you know, last week Caitlyn announced I Am Cait would not be coming back for a season three — and as response, the 70-year-old icon tweeted (and then deleted) on Saturday:

"Now that @IAmCait has been cancelled, will she go back to being Bruce? Will Kris take him back? Do I smell a re-wedding?!"

Well, what might've just been a poke at the former Olympian (as Bette often does) — many commenters believed Miz Midler's tone and use of the word "him" was insensitive to the trans community.

After taking quite a bit of heat, the The First Wives Club star — who has been a longtime friend of the LGBTQ community — fired off an apology of sorts addressed to the Human Rights Campaign:

And while B.M. offered an apology for being offensive, many people still didn't think she got the point:

Hmmm.

So what do U make of all this, Perezcious readers?? Do U think Bette's apology was genuine??
