Last week, the comedian made the bad taste tweet –joke? in response to the recent news about the cancellation of Caitlyn Jenner’s reality show and it received instant backlash from human right campaigners, media personalities and the general public.

After being challenged by thousands of people and losing followers, she removed the tweet (screenshot above).

Last Sunday Midler backtracked, writing: ‘Dear friends @HRC [Human Rights Campaign], whom I have always supported. Sorry last tweet offended. An idle musing. I seem to have misread the temper of the times.’
