Hollywood star Bette Midler has slammed the good people of West Virginia as "poor, illiterate, and strung out."

The multimillionaire entertainment industry elite was forced to issue an apology after triggering a furious backlash over the comments.

Midler issued the apology to West Virginians on Monday shortly after posting a tweet to attack them.

"What #JoeManchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible," Midler tweeted.

"He sold us out. He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out."

Less than an hour later, the celebrity actress and singer issued an apology to West Virginians.

"I apologize to the good people of WVA for my last outburst," Midler wrote.

"I’m just seeing red; #JoeManchin and his whole family are a criminal enterprise.

"Is he really the best WV has to offer its own citizens?

"Surely there’s someone there who has the state’s interests at heart, not his own!"

During an interview on "Fox News Sunday," Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said that he will not vote in favor of the massive spending proposal that the Biden administration and other Democrats want to pass.

Manchin told Brett Baier of Fox News, "I've always said this Brett; if I can't ... explain it to the people of West Virginia, I can't vote for it.

"And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation, I just can't.

"I've tried everything humanly possible.

"I can't get there," Manchin said.

Since no Republican senators back the proposal, Democrats could only ram the plan though if the entire Senate Democratic caucus was on board.

In a since-deleted post, Meghan McCain fired back at Midler on social media, tweeting, "This is abhorrent.

"Way to stereotype.

"WV is a beautiful state with loyal hard working people making a hard earned living for their families.

"WV workers make coal companies & the rest of the country rich & energy supplied on the backs of their hard working & dying coal miners."

Former Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh tweeted

"It would be hard to encapsulate the condescension leftists feel for tens of millions of Americans any better than this does in one tweet."
