Bette Midler is taking heat for her own “Let them eat cake” moment. On Twitter the Hocus Pocus actress offered her own magical solution to the nationwide baby formula shortage, tweeting that everyone could just ‘try breastfeeding.’

Midler was quickly slammed by Twitter users, many from the left, who claimed to be “disappointed” in her “insensitively obtuse” post.

The article goes on to state the following:

Midler posted her Twitter fumble on Thursday evening, in response to MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle’s tweet on how “baby formula shortage reveals an amazing secret oligopoly” of three companies owning “90%” of the baby formula market.


Midler replied to that tweet and wrote, “TRY BREASTFEEEDING! It’s free and available on demand.”

Actor Matthew Marsden responded, “Not all actors are like this, I promise.”

Mother Jones editor-in-chief Clara Jeffery tweeted, “Extremely, profoundly even, disappointed that you’re taking this line. Yes, the monopolies are real and @Nestle in particular has had evil practices. But that doesn’t mean that breast-only (or even at all) is doable for many many women.”

Ilyse Hogue tweeted, “Bette, respectfully, this is a very bad take. I had twins. I didn’t produce enough milk for both. Without formula, I would have had to have chosen which one got to eat. To say nothing of kids that get separated from the birth mothers very young.”

Last Week Tonight executive producer Tim Carvell wrote, “Imagine having a large gay fanbase, many of whom are raising kids in two-dad households, and thinking this is a good suggestion.”

Radio show host Annie Frey said, “Dear @BetteMidler, meet 9mo old Molly. I cannot start breastfeeding her now. I tried breastfeeding all of my children. Always had to supplement. I did everything I could. It wasnt enough. Please don’t be this insensitively obtuse about an incredibly frightening thing for parents.”

  1. Shows her ignorance! Some mothers don’t produce enough milk and adoptive mothers don’t have milk at all!! Bette you’re an idiot!!

  2. Tho I am shocked at her libtard ass saying that, she is correct but, not all women can breastfeed. I am thinking the shortage might be because of the illegals coming in with babies or they are pregnant and had an anchor baby. The Biden administration, I would put money on, has purchased pallets of formula for illegals.

  3. Bette Midler is a PO💩. Not every mom can breast feed and the children have to have formula to survive. Yet Biden administration is shipping pallets of formula to the border for illegals. Another PO💩.

  4. I can’t stand her, BUT HOW did mankind survive for thousands of years without baby formula?? Breast feeding is the natural way, and MOST women can do it.

  5. It’s ironic that she didn’t even consider two gay men who adopt a baby since that’s hailed by liberals as such a noble attainment. Try breastfeeding your baby, Dads!

  6. Bette shut the fuck up you bitch what hell do you know about breastfeeding you idiot and the reason your saying this is maybe you breast fed your kids asshole so don’t even talk about it. What you need to say to Biden is bring all the free formulas he sent to the illegals and they didn’t have to pay for it but we have to pay for the formulas for our babies you bitch
