“Well, all hell has broken loose because I said Melania ‘still can’t speak English’ last night,” Midler tweeted Wednesday. “I was wrong to make fun of her accent. America is made up [of] people who speak with all kinds of accents, and they are all welcomed always.”
Midler’s apology comes after the Grammy-winning singer tweeted a series of xenophobic and sexist jokes aimed at the first lady as she delivered her speech Tuesday night. In one tweet, “The First Wives Club” star, 74, viciously slammed Trump’s accent.
“Oh, God. She still can’t speak English,” Midler wrote.
