Macy Gray, Bette Midler Battle to Survive Latest Woke Wave

It appeared Bette Midler might say absolutely anything on Twitter with out repercussions.

The Divine Miss M. has spent years slashing and burning her ideological foes on the platform. Most egregiously, she cheered on the person who nearly killed Sen. Rand Paul during a 2017 dispute.


No Twitter suspensions. No blowback from her Hollywood friends.

That protecting bubble burst this month.

Midler, in an try and critique the top of Roe v. Wade, apprehensive that the parents behind the Supreme Court reversal had been “erasing” women.

“They don’t name us ‘ladies’ anymore; they name us ‘birthing individuals’ or ‘menstruators,’ and even ‘individuals with vaginas!’” she added. “Don’t allow them to erase you! Every human on earth owes you!”

Midler’s message earned a curious response from conservatives. They grinned, realizing Midler had attacked fellow progressives. The trendy Left is erasing the phrase “girl” from the vernacular, witness the pretzel-like conversations highlighted within the Daily Wire documentary “What Is a Woman?

Now, Midler is below assault from her personal facet, and she or he’s attempting to wriggle free from the woke vise.

That is probably not sufficient. Or, Midler’s unrelenting messaging for Democratic causes might trigger the woke mob to face down. Said mob picks and chooses its victims fastidiously.

We’ll see.

Meanwhile, liberal singer Macy Gray is preventing her personal battle with the woke mob. Gray, who referred to as for a new American flag to exchange the “tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect” mannequin and railed against President Donald Trump, shared some inconvenient ideas with Piers Morgan this month.

Gray instructed the British broadcaster she doesn’t support trans females competing in opposition to organic ladies in sports activities.

She didn’t cease there.

“I’ll say this and everyone’s going to hate me, however, as a girl, simply since you go change your elements, doesn’t make you a girl. Sorry … If you need me to name you a her, I’ll, as a result of that’s what you need, however that doesn’t make you a girl simply because I name you a her and simply since you received a surgical procedure.”

For that, Gray received pummeled by the far-Left on social media. Most stars embark on an Apology TourTM following these public kerfuffles.

It’s partly what Gray did … at first. She Tweeted the next message:

“i received nothing however love for lgbt+ and transgender communities …  i’ve been a supporter since day one and by no means a faux one. my assertion on piers morgan was GROSSLY misunderstood. i respect everybody’s proper to be whoever they wana be.”

The “I Try” singer shortly had a change of coronary heart and deleted that missive. Her follow-up took a extra aggressive, much less conciliatory tone.

Will it work? Gray isn’t as well-known as she was initially of her musical profession. She lacks the long-standing liberalism that helps shield Midler from the Cancel Culture cult.

Some stars, and even platforms, have begun preventing again in opposition to woke bylaws. Netflix and Paramount stood up free of charge expression in current weeks. Comedians like Joe Rogan, Dave Chappelle and Ricky Gervais instructed “offensive” jokes and survived the following assaults.

We’ll know in a couple of days if Gray and Midler’s injury management ways labored.
