Bette Midler Hammered for Telling Moms to ‘Try Breastfeeding’ with Formula Shortage

My, my, my how the tides have turned! Instead of Conservatives being accused of waging a war on women, this time it is left-wing actress Bette Midler!

Disney's Hocus Pocus 2 star tweeted out "advice" to women who are struggling to feed their babies with the formula shortage, telling them to "Try Breastfeeding."

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle wrote,  “The baby formula shortage reveals an amazing secret oligopoly.” Midler’s response to those desperately trying to feed their babies at a time of unparalleled shortages was called callous and out of touch.

“TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s Free and Available on Demand,” Midler replied.

Now she is being slammed for her "cruel and insensitive" tweet.

One woman replied, "WOW Bette, what a cruel and insensitive comment. MY body didn't allow me to do so. Mine dried up before I gave birth. So much for women supporting other women's choices! If you sang this.. your tune would be flat. DO BETTER."

Another wrote, "Respectfully, Ms. M., as someone who is lucky enough to have supply (but only just enough), have a free pump (that I don't use, because again, only JUST enough supply), it ain't fucking free. I'm not working (and thus not earning), and I'm EATING EXTRA."

Audra Halfdansdottir explained, "TRIED. First born refused to latch, despite lactation consultation. Bought a $400 pump (NOT FREE), pumped for the first few months before I had to go back to work & no longer possible. I’m a fan Bette, but you are wrong on this one."

Here are some more responses:

Midler attempted to defend herself and fired back, “People are piling on because of former tweet.  No shame if you can’t breastfeed, but if you can & are somehow convinced that your own milk isn’t as good as a “scientifically researched product”, that’s something else again. The monopoly news is news to me, tho, no lie. #WETNURSES”

Which only dug her hole even deeper:
