Last week, actress Kirstie Alley blasted singer Bette Midler for her racist tweet against black conservatives.

Midler tweeted “Look, there are African American men in this shot! How much did he pay them to be ‘blackground’?”

Alley responded to Midler, tweeting “This is one of the most racist, degrading “jokes” I’ve seen on Twitter & that’s saying a lot. We get it Bette, you hate Trump & that’s your right but to imply Black men have to be PAID to celebrate their OWN political views is pure and REAL racism. And “BLACKGROUND”?? WTF??!!”

People Magazine downplayed Midler’s racist remark, calling it a “joke.”

Alley responded to People, tweeting “I’m not a conservative and my tweet was in defense of Black men having their own views .. It had ZERO to do w politics. HER joke was racist and if her name was ROSEANNE BARR you would have jumped all over it.. racism is racism no matter who spouts it.. so don’t soften it.”
