Bette Midler says you’re ‘just demented’ if you refuse to wear a face mask

It should be noted that Midler made no mention of the Black Lives Matter protests that have taken over the country in recent weeks, many of which consist of people neither wearing masks nor social distancing.

Bette Midler had yet another deranged meltdown, this time targeting people who refuse to wear face masks in public.

Midler kicked things off this week by blaming the recent spike in coronavirus cases on people who don’t wear masks, tweeting, “It’s not the leadership. It’s the people.”

Not stopping there, Midler added that people who refuse to wear masks are “just demented.”

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

“The leadership sucks bigly, but people refusing to wear masks as a ‘political statement’ is just demented,” she wrote. “Do we or do we not want to have a full blown Depression? That’s what we’re gonna have if no one is able to go back to work because there’s no social compliance.”

It should be noted that Midler made no mention of the Black Lives Matter protests that have taken over the country in recent weeks, many of which consist of people neither wearing masks nor social distancing. Midler typically uses her Twitter account to launch ridiculous attacks on President Donald Trump, who she often blames for the coronavirus deaths that have occurred in the United States.

“80,000 people are DEAD. 36 MILLION out of work. Did you ever imagine in your wildest dreams that it could come to this? & what does this awful man do as our leader?” Midler tweeted back in May. “He goes after his predecessor? Threatens to jail his opponent? America, face it! He’s mentally ill. He is unfit.”

Midler also is not the only celebrity who thinks it’s her place to lecture people about wearing masks. Yesterday, we reported that Hollywood star Tom Hanks said that anyone who doesn’t wear a mask is a “p*ssy.”

“Those things are so simple, so easy, if anybody cannot find it in themselves to practice those three very basic things, I just think shame on you,” Hanks said of wearing face masks and social distancing. “Don’t be a p*ssy, get on with it, do your part. It’s very basic. If you’re driving a car, you don’t go too fast, you use your turn signal and you avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it’s common sense.”
