When the 70-year-old blonde took to Twitter to share a fun-poking remark about transgender activist, Caitlyn Jenner, not everyone on social media got Bette’s joke.

“Now that @IAmCait has been cancelled, will she go back to being Bruce? Will Kris take him back? Do I smell a re-wedding?!” the controversial tweet read.

It didn’t take look for team Caitlyn to blast back and share their outrage. “@BetteMidler There are ways to joke about Jenner that aren't transphobic. Calling her "him" isn't one,” one angry reply read.

Too little too late? Not even an apology seemed to help Bett’es cause. In fact, it only seemed to fuel the fire. “DEAR FRIENDS ‪@HRC, WHOM I HAVE ALWAYS SUPPORTED. SORRY LAST TWEET OFFENDED. AN IDLE MUSING. I SEEM TO HAVE MISREAD THE TEMPER OF THE TIMES,” she wrote in reply.

But fans were far from forgiving. “‪@BetteMidler@HRC Transphobia was never a "temper of the times". It's always been wrong,” one reply read.
