Piers Morgan calls Bette Midler ‘racist’ after she says Melania Trump ‘still can’t speak English’ as feud ramps up

PIERS Morgan continued his long-running feud with Hollywood star Bette Midler this morning – calling her a "racist".

The actress was tweeting during a speech given by Donald Trump's Slovenian-born wife Melania when she wrote: "Oh, God. She still can’t speak English."

Piers, 55, quoted the post, writing: "Oh, God. Bette Midler’s a racist."

During Melania's speech at the Republican National Convention in North Carolina, Bette also called Melania an "illegal alien".

She tweeted: "A UGE bore! She can speak several words in a few languages. Get that illegal alien off the stage!"

Good Morning Britain host Piers and the Hocus Pocus and Beaches actress, 74, have been locked in an acrimonious Twitter row in recent days.



They clashed at the weekend after Piers demanded Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have their royal titles removed.

He posted a Sun Online video showing Meghan appearing to take a dig at Trump ahead of the US election by saying: “We all know what’s at stake.”

She and Prince Harry are still known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, despite stepping down as senior members of the royal family this year.

But 55-year-old Good Morning Britain host Piers wrote: "Queen must strip the Sussexes of their titles. They can’t remain as royals & spout off about foreign elections in such a brazenly partisan way."


But Bette replied simply: "Oh, f**k off.

Piers decided the best reply was to taunt her with the advice, often quoted on Twitter: "#BeKind 🙏."

It is not the first time the TV star has found himself under fire from Hocus Pocus and Beaches star Bette over Meghan Markle.

Tweeting him in January, the 74-year-old star wrote: "You, Piers, said things that were worse than critical about the Duchess, you were utterly vicious about her.


"What does she owe you? Attacking her because you didn’t get your interview!?! #Meghan and #Harry are 1/2 your age. Shame on you."

Piers row with Bette is not the only online bust-up he's found himself in over recent days.

He also tangled with Loose Women's Carol McGiffin calling her thoughts on the coronavirus crisis "mindless conspiracy crap" after blocking her on Twitter.
