Bette Midler addresses backlash for 'try breastfeeding' tweet

The Hocus Pocus star weighed in on America's baby formula shortage on 12 May responding to a tweet about the issue by writing, "TRY BREASTFEEDING! It's free and available on demand.". Bette was slammed on Twitter, with actress Julia Fox responding, "Actually Bette, a lot of women can't produce breastmilk”. While author and former gymnast Jennifer Sey wrote, "The 'breastfeeding wars' are just another example of the class divide. It's (the) elite WFH class judging those who can't or don't breastfeed full time.".
