Bette Midler and the Kardashians have had Twitter beef for awhile now, but a new jab has some calling her out for transphobia.

Midler asked on Saturday whether Caitlyn Jenner will go back to being Bruce now that her show, “I Am Cait,” has been cancelled, and remarry Kris in a since deleted tweet.

Midler tweeted out an apology on Sunday, calling it an “idle musing,” and adding that “I seem to have misread the temper of the times.”

Response to the tweet were mixed, but many are calling Midler out on crossing the line, and have reminder her that it is maybe not so funny to suggest that transgender identity is a phase. Especially at a time of increased violence and antitrans legislation.
