People Are Threatening To Boycott ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ After Bette Middler Makes Anti Trans Comment

Whoops.

I was pretty surprised last week when the trailer for ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ pretty much broke the internet as I wasn’t expecting anyone to be that bothered about it as I don’t even really remember the first one even being that good, but I guess I was wrong because people seemed like they were pretty hyped for it.

Well, they were hyped for it at least as a bunch of woke warriors have now decided that they’re going to have to boycott the movie after Bette Middle made a comment that was somewhat transphobic recently. I’m not really sure where she’s going with this, but she’s obviously pissed off with the recent overturning of Roe V Wade in the US, although I’m not really sure if she’s targeting the right people with this tweet as it all seems a bit confused:

Yeah, don’t really know where she’s going with that but there’s definitely some transphobic rhetoric in there and sadly that seems to mean that a bunch of people will no longer get to enjoy ‘Hocus Pocus 2’. Get a load of this:

Yikes. Not sure if those comments deserve that kind of a reaction, but here we are. Middler herself has sought to clarify her words with the following tweets which seem to clear up the situation:

That does seem fairly reasonable when you actually read the article doesn’t it?

Whether it’s enough for Middler to become an ally once again isn’t really up to me though is it? Probably would be at least worth considering given her track record. Educate the woman and give her a chance.
